Kobe Bryant gives LeBron James his signed game shoes

Kobe Bryant had some flattering things to say about LeBron James following his final game in Cleveland.

But the soon-to-be retired Lakers star showed King James the ultimate sign of respect Wednesday night when he gave James his signed game shoes before leaving Quicken Loans Arena for the last time.

Bryant personalized a pair of his purple and gold Nikes for James, making them out to "LB" with a special inscription.

Ironically, it wasn’t the first time that James received a pair of shoes from the five-time NBA champion. Bryant actually gifted James a pair of limited edition Adidas the first time the two met, during LeBron’s high school days.
