Kobe Bryant is the greatest Lakers player of all time, no question about it, but LeBron James is making the franchise to be back to its old glory days, D'Angelo Russell got the opportunity of playing with both legends, and he has opened up about what differentiates the two of them.

In his first stint with the purple and gold, D-Lo was able to share the locker room and court with the Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, and now that he is back to have a second stint, he has shared the locker room and court with the current LA's legend LeBron James.

For Russell the difference is clear, LeBron James has more fun with the game and Kobe took it more seriously. "I'll just go from an aura perspective. Bron's more involved with everybody, with everything, on the bus he's social, on the plane he's social, he's more social. When I was with Kobe, I sat next to him on the plane and watched him, and just studied him, and just chilled next to him. He never talked, he was real to himself, but um, you know when you walk in a room, everybody's talking and then somebody walks in, quiet. He had that about him, like everywhere he where, wherever he went, everybody just stopped, but he embraced it and um, that's the only difference."

While Russell didn't exactly pick who is the better in particular, it seems that he enjoys a little bit more, LeBron's approach of being more social as it helps to improve the team's overall game than just one player.

D'Angelo Russell could be going to the bench for Gabe Vincent

The Lakers point guard D'Angelo Russell was the starter since he arrived in LA before the trade deadline, he was valuable for the team in the regular season, but with his playoffs performance being a bit disappointing and the newest signing of Gabe Vincent, Ham could be thinking of giving an opportunity depending on what he does at training camp.
