Back in November “Uncle Kobe” had some basketball advice for Dwyane Wade’s son, Zaire: Shoot a lot more!
According to J.A Adande of ESPN, after Kobe’s final duel with LeBron James on Thursday night, he had some similar advice and a solution for LeBron’s kids, LeBron Jr & Bryce Maximus.
Kobe thinks he still has a chance to change the next James generation though. He saw LeBron’s mother, Gloria, in the hallway outside the locker rooms and told her he’d been watching her grandsons’ blossoming basketball talents. He had only one critique:
“They pass too much,” Kobe told her. “Send them my way, and I’ll fix that.”
I’m sure he could. Kobe is currently ranked #3 on the all-time field goals attempted list, behind Kareem and Karl Malone, but has a higher field goal attempts average (19.4) than either one of them (18).
