We all know how Lebron had layed out his plan to conquer the world and improve his marketability. We all know how suspect that Time Magazine Cover which had Lebron has the #1 athlete to watch for, and KObe the reigning MVP at #29.

Lebron kept on repeating again and again how he was the leader of the team, you never heard Kobe said that.
Yet when the game was on line against Spain, who did the other Superstars turn to? Kobe Bean Bryant. The guy flat out won the gold for Team USA in that 4th quarter. He wasn't shy about it, he demanded the ball and buried the Spaniards. I know if Kobe wasnt on that team, they would have lost the gold. And Lebron "the self proclaimed leader", Knows it too. Everybody knows it.
