Kobe on Nuggets Fans Booing ‘Melo: ‘That’s Stupid’

by January 21, 2011

Let’s just say that Bryant doesn’t agree with the people in Denver booing Anthony. Luckily for ‘Melo, he’ll have someone to share the boos with during tonight’s game. From the Post: “What about Denver-born, Denver-raised fans – if your favorite player doesn’t want to be on your team anymore … Kobe: ‘Oh please. Don’t give me that (expletive). My first game back when I demanded a trade, they booed the first game and didn’t boo the rest of the way.’ Why did they stop? Kobe: ‘Fans understood that I was going to play hard and compete every single night. They expressed their feelings in the first game and didn’t hear it again.’ When Melo makes shots, they don’t boo, but when he misses, they sometimes boo. Kobe: ‘That’s (expletive). Either you ride with him or you don’t.’ And last night, he scored 35 points and they booed him in the postgame interview (on the court). Kobe: ‘That’s stupid.'”
