Recently retired Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant is one of the most competitive players the NBA has ever seen.
With the Golden State Warriors assembling a super team this summer by adding free-agent superstar Kevin Durant to a roster that already included Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, many fans already are penciling in the Dubs as 2016-17 NBA champions.
In a recent interview on “The Jim Rome Show,” it seemed like Bryant was a little disappointed he won’t get a chance to stop the Warriors on their journey toward greatness.
“I would have thought less about myself if I looked at that move and said, ‘That’s unfair,'” Bryant said.
“If you’re a real competitor, you look at that and say, ‘OK, lace ’em up. Let’s go. I don’t care how many players you have over there; we’re still going to take you down.'”
Hopefully this is the attitude the rest of the league adopts when it comes to the Warriors. If not, it could be a boring season as Golden State dominates the competition.
