With recent comments from former Laker and new Clipper Lamar Odom that the Clippers have a more well-rounded roster than the Lakers, Bryant wasn’t shying away from sharing his thoughts on the battle for Los Angeles.
“It isn’t a rivalry. It never has been a rivalry.”
Well, that’s one way to throw a little gasoline onto the fire.
The Clippers have been historically dismal throughout their history, but with recent additions like Chris Paul, Lamar Odom and the blossoming Blake Griffin, there’s a chance they could come out of the pack as legitimate Western Conference contenders this season.
Just don’t tell Kobe.
