Famous coach Mike Krzhizhevski shared his memories of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James’s joint performance at the Beijing Olympics.
“In the first half of the match, Kobe started making his trademark shots. He couldn’t do it. LeBron then looked at me, and I realized we had a problem. I told him that I would resolve this issue so that he would believe me.
The coaching staff and I sat all night and thought about how to resolve this issue. I asked to be shown a card with his throws on the computer, after which I would talk to Kobe.
I called him and said that I wanted to talk to him about his throws. “Let’s look at these attempts. It’s just rubbish. You don’t have to throw so much when you have Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James. This game undermines our basketball, ” I told him.
I didn’t know how he would react. But in the end, he just said: “Yes, coach, you’re right. I won’t do that anymore, ” the Fadeaway World coach is quoted as referring to the podcast The Dream Team Tapes: Kobe, LeBron & The Redeem Team.
