From MSNBC.com

Kobe Bryant may be remaking his image off the court, but the Los Angeles Lakers guard reportedly is showing more of a nasty side on the court.

 

And a lot of the nastiness is directed at his teammates.

 

The New York Post said people sitting near L.A.'s bench for the Rockets and Wizards games were flabbergasted at the things he screamed at his teammates.

 

The Post also reported Friday more about a major confrontation between Bryant and teammate Lamar Odom after the Lakers? loss at Washington.

 

The confrontation reportedly led to smashing of lights and damaging of a TV monitor belonging to the Lakers' flagship station in front of the visitors? locker room.

 

Bryant was angry at Odom for supposedly botching a pick-and-roll that was to set up a three-point shot for Bryant that could have tied the game, the Post said.

 

The newspaper said as the pair got closer to the Lakers' dressing room, Bryant was yelling at Odom. Odom yelled back and that's when Bryant reportedly went after Odom. In doing so, The Post said Bryant kicked over the lights and a chair holding the TV monitor. The newspaper said Bryant?s security force of two quickly intervened and separated the pair.

 

The Post said they again exchanged heated words and challenges in the locker room and that the tension was so intense one of the security guys accompanied Odom to the back of the charter bus and sat nearby on the trip to the airport while the other sat in the front with Kobe, the last member of the Lakers to board.

 

Jackass.

And did anyone see what he did to poor Mike Miller?

Miller caught him with a hand to the mouth on a layup attempt which looked completley accidental and was something that just happens when you play basketball. A few minutes later Kobe put a cheap shot elbow to Miller's face and wasn't even whistled for a technical.

I mean this is what Dr. Buss ultimately wanted.

 

He only got Phil back because he is banging Buss' daughter. Kobe is a very selfish player, always has been, has always had this Jordan complex, when if you look at it all, Mike made his team better, Kobe doesnt. None of the Laker titles were won primarly because of him, for that he can thank Daddy.

 

Once the Lakers and most importantly Kobe learns that its not about him and his points production, they will be a good team. Of course a better influx of overall talent would go a long ways also. Of course you can argue how good Jordan truly was until Phil came along in the early 90s also....
