When Kobe Bryant returned to team practice this month for the first time in a while, you better believe it he had some Criticism for his team mates. He started the day of barrage by calling his teammates “soft” during a heated 5-on-5 scrimmage between the starters and reserves.
The media also had some front court seats to this eventful practice, as reported that Kobe Bryant and Nick Young were trading barbs early during the scrimmage with Nick Young yelling at Kobe, “Nobody in the world can guard me one-on-one,” and Kobe yelling to Nick Young, “You’re going exactly where I want you to go.”
Later Kobe was heard saying, “You m***er f****rs are soft like Charmin in this m***er f***er. God damn, is this the type of s*** that’s going on in these team practices? Now I see why we’ve lost 20 f***ing games. We’re soft like Charmin. We’re soft like s***.”
Charmin, the well known toilet paper brand known for their superior softness also got in some innocent pokes later Thursday, tweeting:
Bryant was held out from most the the team practices and shoot around this season, a decision made by Lakers coach Byron Scott. The Practice that was held Thursday was Bryant first full practice with his team in a little over two weeks.
Jeremy Lin Kobes’ project this year was also getting some Kobe love during the team scrimmage, pressuring him to shoot whenever he got the ball, yelling, “This m***er f***er don’t got S***. He ain’t got s*** right now. Shoot! Shoot!” Later in the scrimmage after Lin missed a easy pull-up jumper, Bryant said, “I talked his ass right into that bulls***. I talked his ass right into that bulls***.”
After the scrimmage had ended, which the starters had won, Bryant said, “Practice gets real uncomfortable when I’m in this m***er f***er.”
later when the team gathered at center court to finish practice, Bryant passed Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak and was heard saying, “I’m supposed to practice and get better, Mitch. I’m supposed to practice and get better. These m***er f***er ain’t doing s*** for me.”
Finally now Kobe has returned!
