Kobe Bryant Goes On ‘Kimmel’, Gets Pissed at Playful Jeremy Lin Interview (Video)
Kobe Bryant has a reputation for being a bit of a hard ass. To his teammates, to opposing players, to everyone. And while it can oftentimes be viewed as distasteful or mean, it’s hard not to empathize with him after seeing this Jeremy Lin interview in which Nick Young and Jordan Hill goofed around and mugged their teammate after beating the Celtics in OT on Sunday.
Jeremy Lin did his best to keep things professional during this interview, but Hill and Young look like ***holes who don’t deserve to win a game. To be clear, the Lakers have the fourth worst record in the NBA at 14-41.
Here’s the obnoxious clip:
And here’s Kobe’s priceless response to the Jeremy Lin interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! (at 1:48):
Great. Now we’re siding with Kobe Bryant on something. Man, if the Lakers can make that happen, they must be historically bad.
You have to love his reaction on Kimmel. It’s hard to tell if he’s acting like he’s trying to find the right words, or if he’s just so pissed that he’s using every ounce of restraint to keep himself from going ballistic on national television. It’s gotta be the latter, right?
