Kobe Unloads on Crappy Former Lakers Teammates

Wow, there's throwing guys under the bus and then there's Kobe throwing guys under the bus:

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba-ba...4424--nba.html

Quote:
During the 2005-06 season, Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant averaged a career best 35.4 points per game, an astounding number only slightly pumped up by his famous 81-point outburst midway through that very potent season. Though the Lakers were downed in the first round, the campaign should have served at the very least as a personal highlight for Kobe, especially as he was back to working with coach Phil Jackson after the head man was exiled from the team during the 2004-05 campaign.

Instead, Kobe's still a little chippy about the lineups that surrounded him during that 45-win season. Up to and including calling former starting point guard Smush Parker "the worst," just before Wednesday night's exhibition loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. From Janis Carr at the Orange County Register:

"I almost won an MVP with Smush Parker and Kwame Brown on my team," Bryant said before Wednesday's 93-75 exhibition loss to Portland. "I was shooting 45 times a game. What was I supposed to do? Pass it to Chris Mihm or Kwame Brown?"

Bryant was referring to 2005-06 when the Lakers' roster included Brian Cook, Stanislav Medvedenko, Devean George and Parker, Mihm and Brown.

Bryant continued, taking aim at his favorite whipping boy, Parker, calling him "the worst. He shouldn't have been in the NBA but we were too cheap to pay for a point guard. So we let him walk on."
Damn, I forgot how bad that Lakers team really was outside of Kobe. As for the comments about Smush Parker:

If LeBron did this, the media would jump at him.

+1 respect for LeBron.

Not very classy. Kobe is an a-hole. Admit it, Kobe fans. Yeah, he is a winner, but he is an a-hole.

These.

I was never a Kobe fan, nor am I a Kobe hater, but the guy is pretty much a dick.

LeBron gets hated on so much when Kobe is much more hate-able.
The TV special was really the only egotistical/ahole-like thing he has ever done.

He is a dick, but all his comments about Smush Parker were started by Smush Parker bashing on him for some weird reason I can't quite figure out.

According to Smush Parker, Smush tried to talk to Kobe at a practice to shoot the **** and Kobe told him to go away and that he wasn't good enough to talk to Kobe.

That's hilarious. I hope he spoke in the third person too.
