TWITTER: Kobe Bryant Says People Who Call Him Selfish Should ‘Count To 5’

Kobe Bryant with Trophies

The 2015 NBA Draft is in less than three weeks, and all the talk has been about who the Los Angeles Lakers will select with their second overall pick. While the focus has been on Karl-Anthony Towns and Jahlil Okafor, D’Angelo Russell and Emmanuel Mudiay remain possibilities.

While Lakers fans are patiently waiting for the NBA Draft, Kobe Bryant has been active on his Twitter account in recent weeks. When asked what he says to people who call him a selfish basketball player, the five-time champion had another classic response:

Throughout his career, Kobe has been labeled as a ‘selfish’ player, but has made it to NBA Finals seven times in his 19-year career. Earlier this season, Kobe discussed how infuriating it was to hear people label him that when he gave up the individual accolades to win championships.

After three consecutive season-ending injuries, Kobe heads into his 20th season. While the superstar has not decided if he will retire at the end of his contract, general manager Mitch Kupchak has said that Kobe has indicated to him that this will be his final season.
