‘The Decision’ was one of the biggest moments in recent NBA history as LeBron James chose to join the Miami Heat. Coming off his second consecutive championship, Kobe Bryant was on top of the mountain when James ‘took his talents to South Beach,’ and he made it a point to let James know that via text message according to Bleacher Report’s Kevin Ding:

Go ahead and get another MVP, if you want. And find the city you want to live in. But we’re going to win the championship. Don’t worry about it.

Trash-talking is a part of NBA culture, and Kobe can definitely talk with the best of them. Bryant wanted to let James know that he was still the top dog in the NBA.

It is also interesting that Kobe had no problems with LeBron winning another MVP. Kobe has gotten the reputation of being selfish and wanting individual accolades, but this shows that there is only one thing that matters to Kobe, championships.

Even though Bryant was unable to follow-up by winning his third consecutive championship, the fact that he will challenge anyone shows the fire burning inside Kobe to be the best.
