What does he say Kobe, “You wasn’t wit me shootin’ at the gym!”?

Kobe Bryant Says Barack Obama “Talks A Lot Of Trash”

Kobe and Barack Obama have balled it up a few times at the White House and the Lakers star recently revealed a little about Obama’s game on the basketball court during an interview with “Ellen.”
Via People:

L.A. Lakers star Kobe Bryant is one of the best players in the NBA, but there is one opponent he goes a little easy on: President Barack Obama.

Bryant, who has played some games against the commander-in-chief at the White House, says Obama is “very, very good” on the basketball court, but Bryant was tentative about going full-out during their competitions.

“The thing that’s interesting is that if he makes a nice move, you kind of catch yourself,” Bryant tells Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show Friday. “I’m going to steal the ball from him. Then all the sudden, I start peeking around looking for the CIA. I say, you know, I should just let him go.”

DeGeneres agrees, advising Bryant, “Let him win.”

But Bryant says he couldn’t hold back when it came to some harmless trash-talking on the court – but he swears he didn’t start it.

“He talks a lot of trash,” Bryant says of Obama. “You know he’s from Chicago – the Bulls through and through. He always talks Bulls this, the Bulls that. I’m like, my goodness. Can I talk trash to the President?”

Asked if he did indeed trash-talk right back, Bryant says, “Of course I did. I couldn’t help it.”

Pure comedy… Usually Kobe is such an a$$hole on the court, we can’t even imagine him giving the Prez a break!
