For the last couple of years, Kobe Bryant has developed a great relationship with the people of Asia as a result of his “Kobe Asia Tour” and the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He is by far the most popular athlete in Asia and even has a statue in China.

LeBron James is currently in Manila for a promotional event for Nike Philippines and to no one’s surprise, has already been compared to Kobe.

Although James has won two consecutive championships and Finals MVPs, the Philippines aren’t too fond of him and praise Kobe for his efforts to connect with fans.

According to Sports Interactive Network Philippines, James isn’t outgoing and refuses to take pictures or sign autographs with the fans:

“He’s a snob. When you go near him, even if you haven’t said anything, he’s quick to tell you, ‘No pictures, no autographs.’ So we never really wanted to get close to him in the first place.”

These fans tried their best to understand that James is on a tight schedule and doesn’t have enough time to interact with the fans, but praised Kobe for trying to fit in and accommodating his fans:

“Kobe’s charisma is on another level. He knows how to fit in. When he isn’t doing anything, he accommodates those who want a picture or autograph. If not, he knows how to decline politely.”

It’s no surprise that Kobe is the most popular athlete in Asia because there is mutual respect. The fans really appreciate all he has done and in return, Kobe has always tried his best to connect with them. Like James, Bryant doesn’t have to go out of his way to interact with his fans but his efforts likely stem from how he is received in the United States these days.

In a time when the media at home is praising LeBron for his accomplishments (which are well-deserved), they simply try to find ways to disrespect Kobe and what he’s done in his career. The people of Asia view him as a living legend while the media here somehow wants to twist that two rings are better than five (and sometimes even six).

The unfortunate truth is that people will finally come to appreciate Kobe like they do in Asia when he walks away from the game — and that’s a shame.

Wow, 17 years in the league and even in his declining years, Kobe is still better perceived world wide than Lebron who is fresh of a back to back championship run and still in his prime. Very impressive. If I were a team owner, I would sign Kobe over Lebron in a heat beat just based off potential earnings and popularity which equates into maximum profits. That's the most important thing in the end now isn't it... ROI (Return On Investment)

don't let your bandwagoning mindset influence your generalize statement. Filipinos love Lebron, the article was pretty clear onto why they were turned off and anyone of any nation would be turn off, especially when he is trying to promote his own product. if people are going to drop 100s of dollars to buy this multi-millionaire's shoes then he could at least accommodate his fans, especially those who are not as fortunate as us to be able to watch NBA games. these people are from 3rd world countries and I know some people travelled by bus for 6 hours to see Lebron James.

It's like saying that Wiggins is a lock to pass Kobe and Lebron based on common sense. How can you prove that Lebron will be playing much longer than Kobe?

Wow, 17 years in the league and even in his declining years, Kobe is still better perceived world wide than Lebron who is fresh of a back to back championship run and still in his prime. Very impressive. If I were a team owner, I would sign Kobe over Lebron in a heat beat just based off potential earnings and popularity which equates into maximum profits. That's the most important thing in the end now isn't it... ROI (Return On Investment)

#Greatness #Longevity #Legendary

Aren't you one of those that always bring up championships as the biggest indicator for success?

Either way, you would make more with Lebron. Even if Kobe makes more off potential earnings, the difference would not be more than ~5m a year at most.

Along with the fact that Lebron has at least 7-8 more years left in him whereas Kobe probably has 2-3 and the math does itself.

ALSO YOU'RE QUOTING FROM A LAKER BLOG, NO ****ING **** THEY'RE GOING TO PRAISE KOBE OVER LEBRON. That's like going into a North Korean newspaper and quoting the fact that they dislike the US. C'mon there's no way you're that ****ing dense bro.

I just wish some things can be simply enjoyed rather than compared about 24/7. Obviously sports contain comparisons but do we really need to nitpick every single thing about every successful athlete? Lebron is coming off some of the greatest seasons we've season. Let's enjoy it from a basketball standpoint, whether you're a fan of him or not, there's no reason to pick the smallest reasons to bash him.

LeBron James has proven to be a better player for the past 3 seasons imo because of his immense success on the court....there is no doubt about that.

As far as popularity is concerned, yes Kobe is the most popular hands down.

I would suggest a mod close this thread before it turns into another Kobe/LeBron bash/sausage smoke fest thread.

Not all of course. Lebron could of been the most popular player but he had to go get help to finally win something. That will always hurt his accomplishments because it will always be brought.

Wow, 17 years in the league and even in his declining years, Kobe is still better perceived world wide than Lebron who is fresh of a back to back championship run and still in his prime. Very impressive. If I were a team owner, I would sign Kobe over Lebron in a heat beat just based off potential earnings and popularity which equates into maximum profits. That's the most important thing in the end now isn't it... ROI (Return On Investment)

Not true at all.. the article came from a Lakers site.. what do you expect them to write.. I just laughed at this, if you only knew how the fans in the Philippines treated Lebron when he came in the Philippines you will definitely pity Kobe..

Philippines are comprised of the largest amount of lebron haters, the love they have for kobe is equally nauseating.

What are you talking about? I am a Filipino and I don't like Lebron but I find it hard to find a lot of Filipinos who share the same sentiment. It is true that Kobe is really famous here but so is Lebron. The Lakers and the Heat are the most liked NBA teams here.

The kobe hatred on here proves how great a player kobe still is after 17 years in the league. Saying kobe is better then lebron today is something said in all forms of media and fan's alike. Not all of course. Lebron could of been the most popular player but he had to go get help to finally win something. That will always hurt his accomplishments because it will always be brought.

not everyone has the privilege of playing on the lakers with shaq straight out of highschool.

Wow, most obvious bait thread ever. Are Kobe sluts allowed to make bait threads, but nobody else?

Kobe can have his image. Lebron will gladly take being the better basketball player.

Why do you guys keep parroting Lebron is better than Kobe like that's some kind of prize? I should hope prime Lebron is better than a 17 season Kobe....
