Kobe Bryant Has Message for Denver Fans: “Why Provoke Me?”

Kobe Bryant is well known as an assassin on the court, and is the type of player that uses whatever he can as motivation. Now, in the midst of a playoff series with the Denver Nuggets, Bryant has a message for all the fans in Denver.

“It’s always strange for me when fans chant like ‘Kobe sucks’ or something like that. Why provoke me, after all these years?”

Oh, Kobe. This is such a typical Bryant quote that it’s too amusing not to report. Bryant’s once again looking for whatever he can to provide that extra boost of motivation.

The crowd in Denver is notoriously raucous, and that was certainly evident during Game 3 on Friday night. The Nuggets were able to feed of the crowd’s emotion and used it to cruise to a relatively easy victory.

But, according to the Denver Post, Kobe isn’t going to let the fans get to him.

“But yeah, it’s fun to hear that. And that’s one of the things you’ll miss when you retire and stuff, the chanting and the heckling,” Bryant said. “It’s all part of it, it’s all fun.”

Bryant’s Lakers will take on the Nuggets in the hostile Pepsi Center at 6:30 PST on Sunday night.
