The One Where Kobe Texts His Trash Talk To LeBron

From a piece out of Los Angeles today, the OC Register's Kevin Ding shares this text message that Kobe Bryant sent to LeBron James before the season began:

↵

"Go ahead and get another MVP, if you want. And find the city you want to live in. But we're going to win the championship. Don't worry about it."

↵
↵

Awesome.

Even if the taunts proved toothless, it's still nice to know that NBA players talk like this. Or Kobe does, at least. The game's more fun when superstars openly talk s**t like that. LeBron wanted to respond, too, but he froze up and passed the phone to Mario Chalmers.
