Almost every championship team in the last 20 years has had multiple franchise players. LeBron was just never given one in his home town and left much like Shaq. Only difference is Shaq didn't do it like a tool.
For the record I'm a Bulls fan and think Kobe and LeBron will end up on the same tier after their careers. Behind Jordan.
Lebron left like a coward. Lebron will never be on the same tier as kobe.
