Everyone’s favorite point guard Smush Parker is at it again, this time in an interview on ESPN’s show Highly Questionable where he ‘reveals’ that Kobe Bryant did not allow Parker to talk to him during practice.

“He told me one day at practice – I tried to talk to him outside of basketball, about football. And he looked at me in practice and was dead serious and said, ‘You can’t talk to me. You need more accolades under your belt before you come talk to me.”

In the video below (starts at 2:58), Parker goes on to discuss the lack of relationship the two had as well as his thoughts on being considered a ‘bad’ player with the Lakers.

Someone should let Parker know that it has been seven years since he last played with the Lakers.

Let it go.

    Kobe’s a sociopath lol. Detached from humanity!


    During the Finals there was a story about how Tim Duncan wouldn’t talk to the new players until they proved themselves on the court. Its obvious Kobe was doing the same thing. What I don’t get is why when Tim Duncan does it everyone loves it and says it because of his passion for the game, but when Kobe does it people say its because hes an asshole…ridiculous. and FYI I like Kobe and Duncan so don’t flip out over that lol.

      Kobe does give off too much “I’m a superior being” attitude. It’s understandable that people assume it comes from a different place. And I’ve always wanted to like Kobe, but arrogance is kind of off-putting.
