I've got Lebron and Kobe! and i've tried them out! and in my opinion Kobe 6's are one of the best bball shoes i ever ylaped! like u said when u wear the lebron's u feel like u have the support of the shoes but even u wear kobe's it feels like its part of you're foot so what ever moves i do nothing controls my foot accept me! cuz some crossover move i need my ankle do be free to be quick when do it but when I wear lebron's i don't feel the response of my ankle as quick as kobe's!
