When Kobe Bryant and Thierry Henry get together to chat about soccer and basketball, the result is pretty awesome.

Former Barcelona, Arsenal and New York Red Bulls striker Henry waxed lyrical about the current Barca side as Luis Enrique’s men are currently on a club record unbeaten streak of 37 games in all competitions.

The reigning La Liga, UEFA Champions League and Copa del Rey champs are well-placed to complete back-to-back trebles, and would be the first team in history to win consecutive UCL titles since it was relaunched.

Bryant, who will retire from basketball at the end of the current NBA season, compared the current Barca squad to the triangle offense which helped LA win championships and has also seen the San Antonio Spurs prosper.
