“‘Derrick Rose may have your number,’ President Obama lightheartedly jabbed at Kobe Bryant as the [Lakers] posed for a photograph [...] ‘If he calls that number, I’ll be sure to pick up after the fifth ring,’ Bryant quipped back.” — the President of the United States of America and a basketball player, talking trash at the White House

  1. I’m no fan of Kobe, but i gotta say that’s a pretty clever comeback. Did he come up with that before hand or something?

  2. I’m a huge Bulls & D-Rose fan, but Kobe’s response is just classic. hahaha

  3. This has usurped Paul Pierce’s “took my talents to South Beach” tweet as the most clever/badass thing said by an NBA this season.

  4. “by an NBA player” I should have said.

  5. I like to think that Kobe is just thinking about his championships all the time. That way, whenever he needs to drop a zing about them, he’s ready.

  6. Thats funny…. Have you guys not seen Kobe with Cabby? He’s quick with the come backs!!
    Bit of a douche though….

  7. Hum… doesn’t Kobe already have 5 rings?

    Is it a typo or is it just me who doesn’t understand, again?

  8. He’s touting the fact he has five rings Breyzh.

    I gotta give it to the Black Mamba, he never lets his guard down.

  9. I’ll also take this opportunity to say that Obama is freaking awesome. Can you imagine Bush or Clinton trading trash talk with Kobe Bryant? Okay, maybe you can imagine Clinton doing that….

  10. Kobe! Out of the PARK!

  11. Damn Obama’s pretty tall

  12. Good stuff, but I disagree with Martin. The Paul Pierce tweet is still tops.

  13. ZING

    apparently the TBJ are comment nazi’s , “zing” wasn’t long enough?
