This is just halarious. Both Gasol and Kobe will be competing for their counrties in the 2008 World Olympics, but that didn’t stop Kobe from talking trash to Gasol and Spain on what Kobe plans to do to them when/if they meet up:

LockerTalk: This is what Bryant told Gasol: “Being that we lost this series, you (guys) have no chance at a gold medal. I ain’t goin’ 0 for 2, homie.”

    Do something and Do it Now Part One never worked.

    Didn’t they almost win this year? So i guess “do something and do it now” almost worked perfectly. It motivated the young players and it brought in ariza and gasol.

    I think you have fallen to the dark side. How many trades were made in response to that statement? None.. Ariza was obtained in the normal course of improving a team and not in response to the statement. Also, Gasol was pursued in earnest when Bynum went down per Mitch. Motivating the young players??… they had their workout plan for the summer even before Kobe’s statement (check bynum’s exit interview last yr). Only motivation maybe an extra windsprint or another set on the bench press. The FO listens but doesn’t necessarily acts when kobe wants them too… the one exception is when the player is a FA and is about the sign with another team then and only then he can do amazing things.. like ship a huge 350 lb creature to the shores of Miami. That was probably a good move. So maybe kobe is a good GM, u think???
