Kobe Bryant had himself a pretty good time in Seattle this past weekend. Bean was so happy to be back in the area, that he gave the Emerald City and its hoops fans a compliment while taking a small shot at OKC. Per the Oklahoman:
At Richard Sherman’s charity softball game in Seattle, Bryant said it was his first time back to the city since the departure of the SuperSonics for Oklahoma City after the 2008 season.
“I’ve always enjoyed coming here. I’d much rather come here in the postseason than Oklahoma,” Bryant said.
Bryant and the Lakers have faced the Thunder in the postseason twice — a six-game series win in the opening round in 2010 and a five-game series loss in the 2012 Western Conference Semifinals. Oklahoma City advanced to the NBA Finals in 2012.
