Jordan Clarkson On Differences Between Kobe Bryant and LeBron James’ Leadership

 

In his still young NBA career, Jordan Clarkson has had the privilege of teaming up with two all-time greats, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. We’re not only talking about superstar players, but players who shaped an entire generation.

Clarkson made an appearance on the CavsHQradio show and was asked about the differences between the leadership styles of Kobe and LeBron. While both players supported him similarly, they were completely different in their style of leadership and in team practices.

 

“During my rookie year, Kob was always on me. Get in the gym early with him, getting shots and stuff like that. When we got on the court, he was not as vocal as LeBron is in terms of being with everybody and encouraging and stuff. Kob had his own way of encouraging guys. But it was something similar.”

“Two different styles of leadership. LeBron, very encouraging, bringing everybody along, and Kobe, he’s testing you, seeing what you gonna give him. If he gonna get at you, he gonna scream at you, he gonna cuss, he gonna do whatever it is. He had his own way of leading guys as well. It’s two different sides. I’m just blessed to see both of them.”
