Philadelphia native and Lower Merion High School graduate Kobe Bryant has three words for people who think he's a selfish player.
The Los Angeles Lakers guard was asked on twitter what he thought of people characterizing him as a ball-hog on the court.
@kobebryant what do you say to people who call you a selfish basketball player? Thoughts?— Derrick 〽️ (@busy_balling) June 6, 2015
Bryant had a very simple response.
Bryant, of course, has won five NBA championships during his tenure with the Lakers and was named MVP for two of those titles. Since joining Twitter in January 2013, he's amassed over 6 million followers and hasn't shied away from calling out the media and even his own team.
With Bryant's social media presence matching his swaggering persona, one can only imagine the tweets he would have written following the 2002 NBA All Star game in Philly.
