Kobe Bryant joined Jim Rome on Showtime to discuss the now infamous Mike Rice video. Rome asks Bryant how he would’ve reacted if he was one of the players getting bullied by Rice on the video.
Kobe’s response? “I would’ve smacked the hell out of him. No question about it.”
As for Kobe’s assertion that the only person who has the license to hit him is his mother, I would like to remind Kobe that Chris Childs also has the license to hit him. And he did so back in 2000.
