Kobe Bryant’s Old Text Message To LeBron James Revealed (VIDEO)

Anytime Kobe Bryant and LeBron James come up in a story together, it’s bound to make headlines. Bleacher Report’s Kevin Ding wrote a column on Bryant this off-season, which involved 19 untold Kobe stories, ranging in time over his 18 seasons (going on his 19th) in the NBA.

Despite a myriad of interesting snippets about Bryant as a father or his dedication to the Make-A-Wish kids, of course the one that’s catching the most attention is a story involving Kobe and LeBron James during the 2010 off-season.

Bryant had just come off a Game 7 victory over the Boston Celtics, sealing a back-to-back championship, and yet there was of course only one thing on Kobe’s mind, another championship.

On the NBA’s mind though and on every television set, was LeBron James’ decision, his decision to leave Cleveland for Miami.

Well, Kobe apparently sent quite the text message to James during that time. A typical Kobe-like, challenging, trash-talking text message. Thanks to Kevin Ding for revealing this. Check it out in our video above.
