Kobe Bryant has something of a history of attracting the ire of former LA Lakers teammates, and Dennis Rodman is the latest of his ex-colleagues to launch a tirade at the NBA legend.
Bryant has had public feuds with Smush Parker, Dwight Howard and Shaquille O'Neal over the years, but perhaps none have been as straight to the point as the Rodman was at a function in Los Angeles last week.
Rodman and Bryant played together in the same team 14 years ago, for one season only, but Kobe appears to have done enough in only 12 months to leave his ex-locker room pal with reason to hold a grudge.
TMZ has released footage of Rodman on stage at the W Hotel in Hollywood launching into an expletive-filled rant about Bryant while, bizarrely, backed by a jazz band.
"Kobe Bryant ... one thing -- f**k him," Rodman said. "F**k him. F**k him. I'll say it again, f**k him."
Bryant, meanwhile, remains on the sidelines having suffered a torn Achilles playing for the Lakers against Golden State in April, and no date is set for the veteran's return.
