NBA Players Who Have No Love for Kobe Bryant
8. Pau Gasol
Even though Kobe and Pau’s combined efforts brought two back to back NBA titles to Los Angeles, their chemistry started to look out of place during the 2011 playoffs, where the Lakers got swept by eventual champion Dallas Mavericks.
Media sources reported that Kobe and Vanessa Bryant played a major role in Pau’s breakup with Sylvia Lopez Castro. It was also rumored that Pau and Kobe got into a huge argument and didn’t talk to each other for a while.
During his last season with the Lakers, it looked like the Spaniard’s only choice was retirement, but being traded to the Bulls proved otherwise.
