    Ric Bucher:Why Kevin Durant and Russ Westbrook were fired up to play Kobe.

    http://sulia.com/channel/basketball/...source=twitter


    Why Kevin Durant and Russ Westbrook were, and will be, fired up every time they play Kobe Bryant and the Lakers this season: source says the Black Mamba talked relentless smack during the Olympics that the Thunder stars weren't going back to the Finals after the Lakers acquired Steve Nash and then added Dwight Howard right before the U.S. played Spain for the gold medal. Kobe also made a point of guarding Westbrook during practices and pumping him up, the theory being that he wanted to incite Russ to bump heads with KD over who the team's best player is. (If you think that's too conspiratorial to be real, you don't know Kobe.) KD, in particular, got tired of hearing him. For what it's worth: KD and Westbrook's combined 69 points is the highest single-game total they've posted this season.

    Man, Kobe is probably the only one on 2012 USA team that had the skills and the tough personality to be on the 92 Dream Team. Those guys were known to talk trash. As skillful as they are, Russ, Bron and KD wouldn't have survived one practice with the 92 fellas. They probably would have got butt hurt after the first 15 minutes. If today's superstars don't feel like they're being loved or cuddled by their peers, the media, the front office of their team and their fans, they're going to cry like little *****es.

    This is why I love Kobe the guy is a genius. If he can get them to go at each other or to go one on one everytime they touch the ball it might just give the lakers the edge they need to slide past the thunder to the championship. Kobe is nearing the end of career and he is going all out to insure he gets atleast one more shot at the championship, and I for one don't blame him at all. Man I'm a miss this dude when he hangs up the gym shoes and calls its quits; he is truly a last of a dying breed.

    This! I did kinda want them to win yesterday though haha

    Love him or hate him, call him overrated, a punk, chump, and whatever blasphemy you people speak, fact of the matter is there is no denying he's the best of his generation and will go down as a top 5 player ever...what he has done for the NBA is amazing he's the biggest name in basketball all around the world and his chase for number 6 continues! All that matters though to us Laker fans is #17! Lakersnation! #16to17

    Considering the fact that they're so young, and especially Westbrook is a known nut-case, it's not too far-fetched to think that he'd have a hard time with the 92 team. The game was far more physical back then and I'd think that both would have a hard time adjusting to that stuff. Durant struggles mightily when he's bodied up. Although I'd like to body him up, if ya know what I mean. But yeah.
