When LeBron James hit the game-winning shot in Game 3 to give his Cleveland Cavaliers a huge win over the Toronto Raptors -- and a 3-0 lead in the playoff series -- people around the NBA took notice. Everyone from former teammates like Dwyane Wade and Channing Frye to legends like Charles Oakley spoke up about how amazing LeBron is when his team needs him. Now, fans can add retired Los Angeles Lakers' star Kobe Bryant to the list of those talking about the play of James in pressure situations. Not only did the man who will one day share a spot in the Basketball Hall of Fame with LeBron talk about his play, but he also talked about how other players can stop him in the future.

Kobe talks LeBron

LeBron James is averaging 35.7 points and 11.3 assists per game against the Toronto Raptors in the playoffs, as he looks to sweep Toronto for the second consecutive season with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The game-winning shot as time expired in Game 3 was just the latest miracle pulled off by James over his incredible career.

According to Bryant in an interview with Yahoo Sports, LeBron James is able to "control the tempo" of any NBA game he is involved in. Kobe said that all NBA games -- and specifically playoff contests -- are determined by "momentum shifts." Unlike players on opposing teams, LeBron is able to -- according to Kobe Bryant -- control the momentum of the play on the court.

Kobe Bryant also said that he sees LeBron James changing his game to allow himself to control the tempo and conserve energy. Kobe says that is very important for LeBron since he is an older player who averages 40 minutes per game in the series for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

How can other teams stop LeBron James?

According to Kobe Bryant, if opposing teams (not just Toronto, but anyone) wants to stop LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, they have to do one very important thing.

Kobe said that teams have to stop letting LeBron "go left." While it may not be obvious to regular NBA fans, Kobe Bryant has studied players for years and noticed one very important part of James' game.

Kobe said that every bot shot that LeBron James makes in a game for the Cleveland Cavaliers, he makes by going to the left.

Bryant said that is a very important part of James' game and if teams want to stop these game-winning shots, the first thing they have to do is take away that move to disrupt his game.

The Toronto Raptors and Cleveland Cavaliers play Game 4 of their NBA playoff series on Monday night where LeBron James and the Cavs try to sweep the series.
