Kobe Bryant Explains Competitive Attitude NBA Must Have Vs. Warriors Next Season

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.
