NBA Players Who Have No Love for Kobe Bryant
3. Smush Parker
Kobe and Parker had no love for each other from day one. Durng his first practice with the Lakers, Parker tried to engage Kobe in a conversation and Bryant told him ‘You can’t talk to me.
You need more accolades under your belt before you come talk to me.’ In an interview with the LA Times Kobe said ““Smush Parker was the worst. He shouldn’t have been in the NBA, but we were too cheap to pay for a point guard. We let him walk on.”
In 2009, Parker said something that has been repeated a lot as of late. He commented that ”the problem with that team starts with him and ends with him.”
