LeBron is like Apple stock in 2001 right now - buy while it's still low, because it's going to go straight up! His popularity may be low, but smart sponsors will be lining up to pump a 2x MVP, still healthy and in his prime. Kobe won't be able to hold onto the limelight forever, especially with Phil Jackson again talking about retirement this summer.
