But atleast there were some great games with fantastic finishes like the videos posted in this thread portray.
We also got a glimpse at what it could have been with Kobe and Lebron in the Team USA Scrimmage.
They went at each other pretty hard, but Kobe was already declining athletically back then and Lebron wasn't in his prime yet.
Probably the closest thing we'll see to a matchup of them in their primes.
