On Tuesday night after the Lakers third straight win and Kobe Bryant's third straight game with 10 assists, Kobe was asked if he's enjoying his role as more of a passer than a shooter. "Yeah, because you're seeing everybody else gain confidence from it," he tells us. "First and foremost, that's really what I enjoy." For most players that's where the interview would end.
But Kobe adds: "Secondly, because most of you guys thought I couldn't do it."
"I can do it, man. I'm like Neo out this motherf***er."
The black Michael Myers is an American treasure.
When another reporter asks how good a point guard he could've been, Kobe says, "What you think I'm gonna sit here and say I wasn't going be the best?" Then, serious: "When I focus in on something, I become obsessed about it. I want to be perfect at it. That's just my personality." You know, he's Neo out this motherf***er.
