this year kobe will be the MBP
Nash, Dwight, Pau, Kobe, MWP, AJ
Hmmm...I love this thread.
MWP and AJ in the same sentence?
Shirley, you jest.
I don't jest. And my mom's name is Shirley.
Champ Kind said she likes seafood dinners.
Yeah, but he called her again.
Looks like Stern did his job..
Kobe needs half the All stars in the league to even be in the running.. Kobe ain't crap.. And this stockpile of players proves it..
Why did Kobe go there with his comments about Smush Parker?
IDK, but Smush came right back with some great facts on Kobe:
“What I personally don’t like about him is the man that he is, his personality, how he treats people. I don’t mess with that man. I don’t like that side of Kobe Bryant," Parker said. "Basketball is a team sport. It’s team-oriented. It’s not an individual sport. It’s not tennis or golf, it is a team sport. When you are the star of the team, you have to make your teammates feel comfortable. You have to make them feel welcome. You have to make it a good working environment. He did not do that at all.”
Parker claimed in the 30-minute interview that he was told by Bryant that he shouldn't talk to the star. “Midway through the first season, I tried to at least have a conversation with Kobe Bryant – he's my teammate, he's a co-worker of mine, I see his face every day when I go into work. I tried to talk with him about football. He tells me I can’t talk to him, with a serious face. He tells me I need more accolades under my belt before I can come talk to him. He was dead serious.”
Kobe didn't talk with his teammates, Parker alleged. “He never made any attempt to develop any kind of friendships with any of his teammates. Not when I was there. On road trips, he traveled with his security guards. Those were the guys he talked to. He didn’t talk to any of his teammates. On the team plane, he sat in the back of the plane by himself."
That loner behavior continued off the court, Parker said, even on a moment meant to bond over post-season success.
"I’ll tell you a funny story. It's not funny it's kind of sad," Parker continued. "My first year there, we made the playoffs. We’re playing the Phoenix Suns. Phil Jackson gives Lamar Odom his [American Express] black card to take the team out to dinner and build camaraderie for the playoffs. We show up as a team and hang out as a team. We’re all sitting at one table, the whole team, but Kobe Bryant was sitting by himself at his own table in the corner."
Smush was hated by everyone on that team. There was a ten day player who came in, left and bitched about Smush.
Kobe's a jerk, no doubt. He's a dick and he knows it. He doesn't pretend he isn't. But he took a special dislike to Smush - probably because the guy was lazy and talked game without backing it up, two things that seem to infuriate Kobe into an even larger ahole than normal.
Hard workers however, Kobe has had solid relationships with. Ariza, Metta, Fish. All sing his praises. So Smushie and Kobe dislike each other. One is benching it in Europe somewhere, the other is looking for his 6th ring. Go figure.
Smush was responding to Kobe.. Wasnt like Smush just one day said ok, Imma talk about Kobe out the blue.. What was the purpose of naming names when Kobe said what he said?
Because Kobe hates that dude to his core. After Smush bounced, he yammered about Kobe. Dude is an elephant, never forgets. Plus, he's getting more and more crotchety with age. So he finally decided to blast Smush again. He's blasted him a few times in the past few years anyway, but this time Smush decided to whine back.
It's a very tired scenario between the two of them. Honestly, Smush must have tried to push up on Vanessa because Kobe does seem to have a twisted nut about him.
Yeah, because Kobe is all about Vanessa...when he isn't banging the help at a hotel in Colorado...
Or a hundred other chicks on any given night.
Of course he wants V to be chaste...that's his woman. He doesn't have to be chaste though. He's a famous multi-millionaire and a MAN, ffs.
Jeez Brian, it's like you fell off of Venus and landed on Earth. Hi. Famous people are freaking weirdos, have no morals and are ridiculously horrid human beings, but damn are they entertaining.
BTW, to back up my point which Brian bypassed for an easy shot at 24...
His latest FB post:
The end. Smush is a whiny, lazy bitch. Story over.
