I am not sure if you have kept up with the latest Kobe Bryant News. If you haven’t heard Kobe has been very talkative lately and had few things to say about some of his former teammates. Those words were not so nice if you want to read them you can check the story out here.
Now in the never-ending battle to spew hate on Kobe Bryant I have heard that Michael would never talk about teammates like that, oh is that right? Here are a few quotes from the G.O.A.T courtesy of the bleacher report.
“We’re beating a lot of poor teams. So what? We won a lot of games last year, too. Will Horace and Bill still be playing at this level in the playoffs…Can Pip keep it up?”
“I hate being out there with those garbage men. They don’t get you the ball.”
“You’re an idiot. You’ve screwed up every play we ever ran. You’re too stupid to even remember the plays. We ought to get rid of you.” – Michael to Horace Grant
“If you [pass the ball to Bill Cartwright], you’ll never get the ball from me.”
“We’re not winning because of talent. We’re just beating bad teams.”
“Headache tonight, Scottie?” – Michael asks Scottie, while showing him his 2-for-16 line
“It’s probably a twelve-day. He needs two days to wake up.” – Michael on a ten-day contract teammate
“He can’t do anything with the ball. Don’t give it to him.” – Michael yelling at Paxson who passed the ball to Purdue
“You ever hear of a guy, six-eleven maybe and two hundred sixty pounds, a guy big and fat like that and he can’t get but two rebounds, if that many, running all over the damn court and he gets two rebounds? Big guy like that and he gets one rebound. Can’t even stick his **** into people and get more than that…Big, fat, fat guy. One rebound in three games. Power forward. Maybe they should call it powerless forward.” – Michael ripping Stacey King a new one
“He was scared in there and panicking. He just lost it when Stockton scored.” – Michael on B.J. Armstrong’s mental fragility”
“They don’t need a ticket to watch you sitting on the bench. They can go to your housefor that.” – Michael to Charles Davis who was sorting through his tickets for his family and friends
“Give me the ******* ball.” – Michael to Doug Collins who drew up a play for Dave Corzine
“If I were a general manager, we’d be a better team.” (Yea about that…)
So yeah enough with the Michael would never do that to teammates nonsense. This is the guy who punched Steve Kerr in the face. After reading the absolute venom Mike Spewed I think Smush and those other guys got off lightly…..but maybe Kobe is just trying to be an asshole like Jordan too right…..
