The Hawks fans were some big trolls last night.
LeBron James is one of the most hated men in the NBA. He is easily one of the best players, but when it comes down to it, opposing teams and their fanbase kind of hate him. It makes sense considering he’s able to torch them night in and night out. Now that LeBron is with the Lakers, another hated franchise, the jeers have gotten a bit more intense when the team is on the road. That was on full display when the Lakers took on the Atlanta Hawks last night. The Hawks won the game 117-113 and the fans gave LeBron some great chirps from the stands. The most prominent of which was a “Kobe’s Better” chant.
Of course, the debate between who is better between Kobe Bryant and LeBron James has been a prominent discussion as of late. LeBron is a better overall player but Kobe has led the Lakers to five championships whereas LeBron only has three. The championship argument may be an unfair argument but regardless, it’s obvious that Kobe has won more than James.
Despite the boos, LeBron registered the 78th triple-double of his career which puts him fifth all time alongside Wilt Chamberlain. James registered 28 points, 11 rebounds, and 16 assists.
