flauge, let's be clear, Kobe is the face of the franchise - in body and in spirit. It's not like Pau is being called out by some journeyman, or just any other player...is anybody has the right to make a statement like this, it's Kobe.i dont need a lesson in what kobe is to the Lakers. arguably the best laker of all time (for me it's Magic). arguably a top 5 player of all time. a 5 time champion.. a MVP.. i get it. he's great.

im not trying to be a jerk.. but has any other superstar done something similiar to this? the only example i can come up with is T.O. in the NFL. seriously, can someone name another player who has done this?
Michael Jordan used to do this ALL THE TIME to his teammates. Frankly, his comments were ten times nastier than what Kobe said. Let's look at a few examples:
"He can't do anything with the ball. Don't give it to him." - Michael yelling at Paxson who passed the ball to Perdue
"You ever hear of a guy, six-eleven maybe and two hundred sixty pounds, a guy big and fat like that and he can't get but two rebounds, if that many, running all over the damn court and he gets two rebounds? Big guy like that and he gets one rebound. Can't even stick his *** into people and get more than that...Big, fat, fat guy. One rebound in three games. Power forward. Maybe they should call it powerless forward." - Michael ripping Stacey King a new one
"He was scared in there and panicking. He just lost it when Stockton scored." - Michael on B.J. Armstrong's mental fragility
"It's a hell of a lot easier to make Earl Monroe look good than it is Brad Sellers."
"I hope there's a jumpshot in there." - Michael to Stacey King who was walking into the locker room with a box
"They don't need a ticket to watch you sitting on the bench. They can go to your house for that." - Michael to Charles <span style="position: static; font-family: Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,Sans-Serif; color: #0000ff; font-size: 9pt; font-weight: 400;"> Davis who was sorting through his tickets for his family and friends
"Give me the fu*king ball." - Michael to Doug Collins who drew up a play for Dave Corzine
"You're an idiot. You've screwed up every play we ever ran. You're too stupid to even remember the plays. We ought to get rid of you." - Michael to <span style="position: static; font-family: Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,Sans-Serif; color: #0000ff; font-size: 9pt; font-weight: 400;"> Horace Grant
"Will Vanderbilt. He doesn't deserve to be named after a Big Ten school." - Michael on <span style="position: static; font-family: Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,Sans-Serif; color: #0000ff; font-size: 9pt; font-weight: 400;"> Will Perdue
