Lakers News: Smush Parker Says Kobe Told Him ‘You Can’t Talk To Me’ During Practice

Most Los Angeles Lakers fans believe that Smush Parker is one of the worst players ever to play for the storied franchise. Parker is often mentioned on the list of worst Lakers along with Kwame Brown, Sam Bowie, Adam Morrison, and Dwight Howard.

Perhaps the one thing that Parker is remembered the most during his time in Los Angeles is his relationship with Kobe Bryant. Smush and Kobe never really got along while playing together and the former Laker point guard has never been shy about expressing his feelings about the superstar.

Parker made an appearance on Highly Questionable with Dan Le Batard recently and was asked about Kobe. Although Smush was clearly tired of the subject, he did say the following about the five-time NBA champion:

“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 to talk to me.”

Obviously, Parker isn’t a fan of Kobe. Parker has called the experience of playing alongside Kobe in Los Angeles “overrated” on more than one occasion and hasn’t changed his stance over the years.

It is no secret that Kobe has rubbed quite a few people the wrong way over the course of his career. Former teammates and coaches haven’t had favorable things to say about the five-time NBA champion, but despite that fact, he’ll still go down as one of the greatest to ever play the game.
