Kobe Bryant Responds To Jim Brown’s Comments Via Twitter

>On Tuesday night, Jim Brown was on The Arsenio Hall Show and was asked about his thoughts on Kobe Bryant. Brown didn’t have the kindest words to say about Bryant quipping that he, “threw Shaq under the bus.” Brown went on to share his thoughts on the way Bryant has handled conflict, and attributed his resolution practices to Bryant growing up overseas.

“He is somewhat confused about culture because he was brought up in another country so it doesn’t quite fit (with) what’s happening in America.” […]

“In the days when we had a summit and we called the top black athletes together to talk to Muhammad Ali about his status with the armed forces, there were some athletes we didn’t call. So if I had to call that summit all over, there would be some athletes I wouldn’t call. And Kobe would be one of them.” (via Yahoo! Sports)

This morning, Bryant took to Twitter in response to Brown’s comments:

It’s clear that Bryant wasn’t too fond of Brown’s thoughts as he mentioned two forward thinkers in terms of race relations in Nelson Mandela and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. While Brown’s comments weren’t the kindest toward Bryant, they certainly weren’t volatile, but will still certainly spark discussion among some about cultural relations between those from different backgrounds.
