Showdowns between two superstars like Kobe and LeBron are as refreshing as walking into an air conditioned room on a scorching summer day. Kobe Bryant vs. LeBron James, the marquee showdown of today, is perhaps the most electrifying one to date. It’s a matchup that guarantees high-flying jams and acrobatic moves and plays. On Sunday in front of a national audience, these two phoenoms gave everyone a special Hollywood treat. LeBron, who leads the league in scoring, racked up 14 of his game-high 41 points in the fourth quarter to help the Cavaliers rally from a late nine-point deficit and defeat Kobe’s Lakers, 98-95, in Los Angeles. James wore his soon-to-be-released Black, White and Red Nike Zoom LeBron V for the second time this season. Check out numerous pics below as they are the best look at the new V’s so far. Check out the highlights video.

Before the game in L.A. LeBron and the Cavaliers got burned by the Suns in a 110-108 loss on Friday night. Shawn Marion made just one shot, the only one Phoenix absolutely had to have. He dropped in a baseline floater with 1.1 seconds left for his lone field goal that night. James scored 36 points to lead the Cavaliers, but the NBA’s leading scorer missed a 3-pointer and a pair of inside shots in the waning minutes. After leaving the floor, James, who was just 6-of-16 in the second half, kicked a trash can in disgust on his way to Cleveland’s locker room.
