The Black Mamba has had it with these MF scrubs on his MF team! Kobe Bryant, who has been held out of most practices and shootarounds, returned to full-practice for the first time in two weeks and was not at all pleased with what he saw.
The vet finally exploded in rage during, and after practice- nobody was safe including Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak. Walking off the court with fire gushing out of his ears, Bryant fumed at his GM ‘These MF ain’t doing s*** for me!’
Kobe claimed his teammates were ‘soft like Charmin,’ and was fed up with the effort he saw in practice, most notably Nick Young’s claim that nobody in the world could guard him 1-on-1. Unfortunately for Swaggy P, the NBA isn’t 1 v. 1, otherwise the Lakers would be 22-0 instead of 6-16.
According to ESPN,
Bryant was also getting on Jeremy Lin during the scrimmage, daring him to shoot whenever he had the ball, yelling, “This m—–f—– don’t got s—. He ain’t got s— right now. Shoot! Shoot!” After Lin missed a pull-up jumper, Bryant said, “I talked his ass right into that bulls—. I talked his ass right into that bulls—.”
By the end of the scrimmage, which the starters won, Bryant said, “Practice gets real uncomfortable when I’m in this m—–f—–.”
Expect to see Kobe’s fury carry over into tonight’s matchup against the defending champion Spurs as he looks to surpass Michael Jordan for third on the all-time scoring list, needing just 31 points to do so.
