Kobe Fires Back at Smush

It took a while, but here it is: “I asked Bryant some questions about what life is like as a frustrated star in the NBA and it led to a pretty good exchange. Keep in mind that Bryant and [Deron] Williams were USA Basketball teammates the past two summers…Q: From that situation two years ago that you went through, is it something that you realize you have just to bite your tongue through. A: ‘First of all, Deron’s not even close to that situation. What I’m saying is he’s got a little bit better cast than I did. It’s not dire straits for him. If you’re asking me if I feel bad for him? Absolutely not. No way.’ Q: Is it a better situation to keep your mouth shut and just let the organization handle things? A: ‘He’s fine, he’s fine. You know, just continue to play. They have some talented players there, they have a great coach. They’ll be fine.’ Then came the kicker from Bryant: ‘It’s not even close. They don’t even have Smush Parker on their team. It’s not even close.’”

    Kobe’s funny sometimes. Also when Artest was talking trash in that game a few weeks ago and Kobe was laughing it off – he has a knack for making some guys feel very small…. I like it. Keep ‘em coming Kobe, all the way to the Finals.

    xyz Kobe, your d!ck is showing, oh wait..

  • chintao

    Kobe did not reveal himself to be particularly clever; rather, he reaffirmed the fact that he is extraordinarily petty. If he was thinking all this time about Smush and that’s the best line he could manage, just imagine how his soul burns at night when he thinks about all the things Shaq has said about him. I hate Shaq, but it must be said that, between Shaquita and Kobe, the larger is the less insipid.

    Word Chintao, Shaq however can get away with plenty more – knowing full well its not even an issue or it gets smoothed out quickly over time. Remember “@ss tastes”-uh-gate? And in that exchange Kobe didn’t say anything as if he was the bigger man, but went against it this time. Strange. Kobe says something the same week as Smush would just put Smush into people’s conversation and get him the most limelight he’s had in 4 years if not ever. So again, wonder why he even mentions Smush at all. Kobe can be the Sh!t talker instigator too, parking lot to some fans about Bynum. Bynum just comes back strong the next year proving his worth. Actions speking louder than words.
