I actually agree with you although he's better built for the bumps than Kobe was.
And your 2nd statement is exactly why I prefer to pass on Bron.
No way I'd pass on him. He has enough in him to win at least one more ring, Simply winning one ring is enough of a reason to sign a player. Even when he declines, the guy is still an elite passer and probably the best mentor that money could buy at this point.
As far a being better built to take more bumps than Kobe, that may be true but he consistently takes more bumps to begin with. Bron's game is still heavily based on his athleticism. At this age, Kobe's game wasn't. Kobe stopped relying on pure athleticism during his prime years when Shaq left.
I hated Lebron for most of his career because he was the only legit threat to Kobe. As I've gotten older, I've grown to appreciate what he has done for the game just as much as I do for Kobe. I'd love to see yet another all time great hold up the trophy in the purple and gold. That alone would solidify the fact that LA is still the place to be. Bron coming here does more for the future of this franchise than these young guys could ever dream of.
