Sylvester Stallone is the latest to weigh in on the new Kobe Bryant and LeBron James dynamic in Los Angeles. A reporter from TMZ asked Stallone a hypothetical situation wherein there’s only one table left in a restaurant. To whom will he give the last table? The current Lakers superstar in LeBron or the L.A. legend in Kobe?

Sly’s answer was short yet pretty much hit the spot:

“Don’t you have to be courteous to the new guy in town?

Check out the video below:

Though already retired from playing, Bryant’s impact in the city resonates up until now. He and James were once considered rivals a short while back. At one point in their careers, they were considered the top two players in the league.

Now, people see them as a team. It doesn’t matter if Bryant’s not donning the purple and gold for work every day anymore. He still shares a strong relationship with the Lakers organization. He’ll be a Laker for the rest of his life.

James, meanwhile, joins the list of NBA greats that have donned the Lakers jersey. Some of which include Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabar, James Worthy, and Shaquille O’Neal. Just like them, will James bring a ring to the City of Angels?

As for the hypothetical situation that Sly had to work on: if Kobe and LeBron enter a restaurant with only one table left, we’re pretty sure that they went together to sit, eat, and share endless stories of their fabled rivalry and their life as a Laker.
