Kobe Bryant Getting Competitive......

Kobe Bryant Getting Competitive......

Postby westcoast21 on Sat Jul 21, 2007 10:27 pm

The highlight was probably Kobe Bryant getting into it a little bit with Chris Collins, the Duke assistant coach (and son of NBA Legend Doug Collins). During a shell drill when coaches worked the ball around the perimeter and players worked on rotating to the correct defensive position, Bryant was late rotating over to Collins and Collins let a clean three-point attempt fly. It was an airball, but that didn't matter to Kobe, he felt like he was being showed up. The next time Collins had the ball in Bryant's vicinity and tried to put it on the floor, Kobe quickly enveloped him with defense and slapped the ball away from Collins, quipping, "That's payback." All of this is even more amusing considering that Bryant and Collins have a history, as Collins no doubt was involved in the recruiting of Bryant by Duke, the college that Kobe has said he probably would have attended if not for leaping straight to the NBA out of high school.


After feeling out his role on the team on Friday, Kobe was much more vocal on Saturday at times offering encouragement to teammates, at others talking trash to his opponents. When LeBron got fouled early in the contest, Kobe screamed from across the court that it was a poor call. LeBron summarily boinked both foul shots and Kobe yelled, "See, the ball don't lie!"

Yep, thats our boy Kobe. As competitive as ever. I have a feeling Kobe wont know what the word "scrimmage" means tomorrow. I'm predicting a blue team victory.

I hope Kobe doesn't get too "competitive" and turn T-wac in the playoffs.

“If somebody had their life on the line, and they’ve got their options on who they want to save their life – tell me who you’re going to pick?” Bryant asked. “You’re going to look at the stats first?”

Kobe is one of the only guys in the league who will take a pick-up game seriously. He's a competetive person.

Thanks for the info.
