Like most readers of this blog, Kobe Bryant has been watching the 2015 NBA Finals, and the five-time champion appears to have enjoyed the Herculean performance of LeBron James (highlights courtesy of Grantland):

James has averaged 41 points, 12 rebounds, and 8.3 assists per game while carrying the injury depleted Cleveland Cavaliers to a 2-1 Finals lead over the heavily favored Golden State Warriors, but the number many have stuck on is James' 35.7 shots per game. Bryant took to Twitter with a message for those critics:

#letitfly may be the greatest advice ever given. We should all live our lives, and do our jobs, with such a mindset.

Got a term paper due tomorrow morning? #letitfly

Need to make a full meal for your entire family in less than 45 minutes because you procrastinated? #letitfly

Trying to escape the fighting pits on your dragon? #let #it #fly

It's hard to think of a situation where #letitfly is not a good idea. It's the new #YOLO.

Bryant also approves of the Cavaliers effort as a team, and thinks the Warriors are leaving something on the floor:

Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and the rest of the Warriors just need to take Bryant's advice and #letitfly. As a great man once said: "Can't win a shootout with a butter knife." And if you disagree with that, Bryant has some advice for you:
