Pete, here’s some advice: Don’t mess with the best player in the game today. You can mess with LeBron, sure go ahead, but not with Kobe.

HoopsHype: We had a little conversation on the court that went like this… Kobe said to me “Hey, this game might get you in the NBA,” trying to be a smartass. “If you think that, then put your money where your mouth is,” I replied. “I put your $10 million against your $100 million.”

One hour before the game I was told Ron Artest said “Pete who?” when they asked him if he knew who he was going to guard. “Anyway, it really doesn’t matter what he said. It had no factor the way I play. He doesn’t even have to know me at all. I could care less what any guy says, good or bad. I’m a team basketball player. He started off physical, tried to show his physical strenght, and I didn’t back down at all. This is our gym, our home, they came to Barcelona to play us. I don’t really want to get into what happened with Artest on the court. I don’t know him at all, just saw him on TV and I had never played him.”

    Pete who?

    • keeponkeepinon18

      Must be Pete Mickeal. Anyway, I thought he was doing a pretty good job competing against the Kobe and the Lakers (as hard as the Lakers were trying anyway).

      • Deemac1

        Wow this guy Pete really thinks he did something, and his “people” calling and texting him is rediculous! He had 1 moment to shine against a “rehabilitating” Kobe in a game that didnt matter and had no merit and he was acting as if he was playing in game 7 of the NBA finals! What a douche…. Its an exhibition pre season game man. LOL wish he played in the league so Kobe can do him like how MJ did Bobby Sura back in 95 when he tried to play Mike all tight and trash talk in a pre season game and when they played regular season MJ lit it @ss up! Coodles for him trying to play hard but in a pre season game against a 60% Kobe fresh off surgery just makes you look like a loser in the eyes of real ballers. I prey an NBA team saw this “performance” and wants to give Mikael a chance. Hell ide even want the Lakers to give him a tryout so KB can punish his @ss in practice. lol

    • 242LakerFan

      Your first sentence is declarative, yet you end it with a question mark. Your punctuation is an absolute mess with periods and question marks that should be at the end of a sentence placed at the beginning of the following sentence, both a period and a question mark at the ends of two different sentences and still no capitalized initial words. You are actually getting worse at this.

      FC Barcelona is a well respected club, one of the best in europe, and this result is really no surprise considering it was a preseason game for the Lakers.

    He can go ahead and mess with Kobe in my opinion, it’s his own grave that he’s digging. I certainly wouldn’t do it, but a lot of other players have shown suicidal behavior in the past too.

    • 242LakerFan

      Suicidal? This fool plays in Europe, not the NBA. Kobe’ll probably never play against him again in his life. He knew he could take advantage of the relaxed, nonchalant, recovering from injury, not caring about this game on a competitive level Kobe Bryant without fear of reprisal. Nobody on the Lakers took this game seriously.

      • Kristian

        You’re right in every respect, but I’m sure the two will cross paths again at some point. These things have the tendency of getting resolved at some point.

      • i0ioooooi0i

        If the Lakers didn’t take this game seriously, then why were all of the starters in at the end? They barely even played against the Timberwolves. Also, why did Kobe not step up to Mickael and just lock him down on those 1-one-1 situations where Mickael tried to go at him. The first time, he grabbed him and almost threw him to the floor. The second time, he let him go by and hacked him on the arm. And to top it all off, he actually had a great stat line. Very disappointing for me, as both a Lakers and Kobe fan.

    whenever I say pinky i’m talking about my penis size sorry guys

  • Likwidsage

    No you fucktard, Kobe doesn’t really have ice in his vein. No one does. Is he still the most feared? Yup. That’s what the NBA players and GMs say. Is he still the guy you want taking your last shot? Yup. Still voted at the top. Is it hard for you to swallow the truth? Apparently so. Find someone better than Kobe before trying to put him down. Lebron is a failure and Durant is pre-mature. All the Legends already said what they had to say about Kobe, mostly positive.

      • Lakers 24 7

        Good point, but I don’t see why Kobe would try and lock him down…I mean, if this was the regular season or the playoffs, I’d understand, but in the pre-season, considering Kobe just came off knee surgery and isn’t totally 100%..he just kinda laughed it off. The starters might have been in at the end, but aside from Odom and maybe Gasol, nobody really played heavy minutes. Yea, the Lakers had 2 losses, but they had a couple losses in last years pre-season, as well. I don’t think it’s anything to worry about, at least not yet.

  • stop answering to laffs atu

    you guys really need to just ignore laffs atu hes dumb. This is a lakers website not a talkshit to him place. just ignore him.
