Amidst accusations that LeBron James’ media blitzkreig/upcoming free agent tour is upstaging the NBA Finals, Kobe Bryant was asked about the Chosen One’s Choice and made his stance quite clear.
“You’re asking me if LeBron is going to New York?” Bryant told The Post. “I’m trying to tell you in a polite way, I don’t give a [bleep].
“As a fan, it’s a big deal,” Kobe added. “You’re talking about LeBron and Dwyane Wade, it’s two huge names changing cities. It alters things drastically in the NBA. But I really don’t care about it.”
Byron Scott, now an ESPN broadcaster, was standing with Bryant and cracked up.
“Why are people talking about LeBron anyway?” Scott said. “Let me tell you something. From me just knowing Kobe, he doesn’t give a [bleep] what everyone is talking about anyway.”
“I couldn’t have said it better,” Bryant piped in.
This is probably a testament to Bryant’s focus on the task at hand, but rest assured, come July 1 Kobe Bryant will most definitely give a [bleep] about any threats to another Laker dynasty.
