Kobe Bryant: “If You Weren’t Born When I Started Playing, You Can’t Talk Trash” (Video)
The great Kobe Bean Bryant is on his last legs as his career winds down to an end. That doesn’t stop him from letting the young bucks in the NBA know his one and only rule while trying to talk trash to him.
During his post-game press conference following the Lakers’ loss to the Pacers last night, he spoke about how he feels like grandfather on the court at times—“I’m like a triple O.G.,” he said—and talked about what he told one young Trail Blazers player who tried to talk trash to him recently.
“I got one rule,” he told the player. “If you weren’t born when I started playing, you can’t talk trash.”
