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:â†µ
"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."â†µ
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.
