The one thing that seperates Kobe from anyone else is his intensive focus on the goal at hand – the championship. When one reporter asked Kobe his thoughts about LeBron, Kobe made it clear he just don’t give a (bleep).
NYPost: “You’re asking me if LeBron is going to New York?” Bryant told The Post. “I’m trying to tell you in a polite way, I don’t give a [bleep].
“As a fan, it’s a big deal,” Kobe added. “You’re talking about LeBron and Dwyane Wade, it’s two huge names changing cities. It alters things drastically in the NBA. But I really don’t care about it.”
Byron Scott, now an ESPN broadcaster, was standing with Bryant and cracked up.
“Why are people talking about LeBron anyway?” Scott said. “Let me tell you something. From me just knowing Kobe, he doesn’t give a [bleep] what everyone is talking about anyway.”
“I couldn’t have said it better,” Bryant piped in.
