I am loving the elder Kobe Bryant. The Black Mamba was always one to speak his mind, but now that he has an eye on retirement after the 2013/2014 season he is really getting flagrant with it. I don’t think I would enjoy Kobe as much if he was still the “Drink Sprite” goody-good Kobe.
Kobe was recently asked to talk about his infamous post-Shaq years. Somehow during the conversation the topic of the worst players he’s played with came up and Kobe took no prisoners:
“I almost won an MVP with Smush Parker and Kwame Brown on my team,” Bryant said before Wednesday’s 93-75 exhibition loss to Portland. “I was shooting 45 times a game. What was I supposed to do? Pass it to Chris Mihm or Kwame Brown?”
Bryant was referring to 2005-06 when the Lakers’ roster included Brian Cook, Stanislav Medvedenko, Devean George and Parker, Mihm and Brown.
Bryant continued, taking aim at his favorite whipping boy, Parker, calling him “the worst. He shouldn’t have been in the NBA but we were too cheap to pay for a point guard. So we let him walk on.”
My response: hahahhahahahhaa.
Kobe and Smush have been jabbing at each other for years. You can tell there is no love lost there. Dwight are you paying attention? Mess up, and may ye feel the wrath of K.O.B.E. for all eternity.
