Five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant has never been shy about speaking his mind.
So when the Lakers star posed for a picture with Rob Gronkowski after L.A.'s 88-87 overtime victory over the Celtics, he didn't hesitate to tell the Pats' tight end where he thinks he should play next, according to WEEI.
"I said 'the Eagles need a tight end.' That's what I told him," Bryant, a Philadelphia native, said. "I'm recruiting. He's phenomenally talented — just a freak athlete. He shouted at me. I shouted back. It's fun to have those conversations with athletes that you respect."
