It’s the middle of June, the NBA season has ended, the draft has come and gone and free agency is starting to simmer down a bit. Let’s talk about the Olympics.
I’m sure everyone’s already heard that Kobe thinks this years Olympic team can beat the ’92 Dream Team but yesterday Michael Jordan replied and said he “absolutely laughed” when he heard Kobe’s comments. Charles Barkley said he just started laughing too. Jordan added, “For him to compare those two teams is not one of the smarter things he ever could have done.” Understandable for Jordan to say seeing as he is considered ‘The Greatest of All Time’. Larry Bird also had something to say, “They probably could. I haven’t played in 20 years and we’re all old now.” I lol’ed a little bit.
Then Kobe comes back with this gem. “He knows I’m a bad mother fucker. I’m not really tripping.” Kobe mother-fucker Bryant. Sorry Mario Chalmers, your nickname is now invalid.
In my last post, we got a glimpse of what Kyrie Irving could do and I told you to keep an eye on him. Once again though, Kobe ain’t scared.
This is why Kobe is amazing.
