Kobe on Fisher Guarding Him: ‘I Love Him, But He’s A Midget’

by May 19, 2012

After sinking two early fourth-quarter jumpers over the 6-1 Derek Fisher, Kobe wasn’t taking too much credit. But Kobe did take a lot of playful shots at Fisher at the post-game press conference, calling him a “midget” and “5-2” (via CBSSports.com): “Bryant scored easily over Fisher on back-to-back possessions, by the way, to give the Lakers a 78-76 lead. ‘Same result as all the times we played one-on-one in the gym,’ Bryant said. ‘I love him, but he’s a midget.'”
