Kobe Bryant trash talks LA Lakers teammates

Published Add your comment

Kobe Bryant is possibly the most competitive NBA player in the history of the league, so the LA Lakers being truly awful this season doesn't sit well with the Black Mamba.

And it appears that the 35 year old has even started to take out his aggression with his own teammates.

Earlier today, Lakers guard Nick Young decided to share some of the recent trash talk that Kobe Bryant told him, and it was scathing.

From Mark Medina of the LA Daily News:

"Nick Young shares Kobe Bryant's recent trash talk: 'I don’t talk to players on teams that are 20 games under .500."

Wow. We knew that Kobe was unhappy with how everything was going this season, but we didn't realize at all that the disgust spread to the players as well.

Kobe set out what was basically a list of requests after the Lakers "convinced" him to sit out the reminder of the season. These included:

- Calling for executives Jim and Jeanie Buss to improve their relationship.

- Arguing the Lakers need to decide whether they keep coach Mike D’Antoni.

- Challenging the Lakers to build a championship roster for next season.

Kobe has earned the right to be the head honcho at the Lakers, it comes with five championship ring over 17 years of starring performances and too many awards to count. But is his ego finally going to far? Or is it the Lakers fault for making one single player so powerful?

It's hard to say but maybe Shaq was right about Bryant all along.
