The Lakers were leading the Clippers 110-104 on Friday night, with about 31 seconds to play, when Derek Fisher and Chris Kaman got tangled up.
Kaman came to set a screen around 20 feet away from the basket, and Fisher decided to run through it, oppose to around it, and that rubbed Kaman the wrong way.
They would both get technical fouls for the altercation, but Kaman was ejected when he continued to mouth off towards Fisher, reportedly yelling, “I’ll meet you outside!”
Kobe responded to Kaman’s threat:
“Whats he gonna do? Shoot him with one of his bow and arrows?” Kobe said sarcastically, “Come on man, give me a break, everybody talks tough in this league nobody’s a fighter.”
Fisher was asked after the game if he knows that he annoys some players:
“I guess so, I mean some people feel fondly of me, and some people don’t”…”if big guys are setting screens on little guys, to not expect any contact…is unrealistic, this is a competition, as much as you are trying to tear my head off, I’m trying to tear your head off too.”
Mo Williams, Kaman’s Clipper teammate voiced off on his twitter saying…
“If yall didn’t know, D Fish is the Hines Ward of the NBA. I don’t know if that’s a compliment or not. But don’t let that nice guy fool u”
According to reports, Kaman was asked about the incident after the game but did not respond.
