Kobe Bryant tells LeBron’s critics to “back off”
Kobe — who has seen his share of fan and media criticism, and a few other people’s shares also, especially following the trade of Shaquille O’Neal from the Lakers and the incident in Colorado — told people they should back off LeBron.
“I think people need to lay off that kid, that’s what I think. I’ve gotten to know him pretty well playing on the Olympic team, and I think they just need to back up off him and just let him play and let him live his life. Let him make his decisions, let him mature as a player.
“It’s tough to be under a microscope like that all the time. So I would like everyone to just back off him and let him play.”
