Kobe’s trash talk to Tim Duncan: “My ring count is a little higher than yours”

I love Kobe quotes, especially when it involves trash talk.

While Bryant was chatting with Max and Marcellus yesterday, he spoke about a recent encounter he had with longtime foe Tim Duncan.San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers

Max said Kobe better watch out for Duncan because he’s just behind Bryant in the ring department. This was Kobe’s reaction:

We had a really good discussion about that when we played in San Antonio. Man, he was (laughs) he said something to me about a shot I took or something like that. He said something like, “Hey man, Kobe’s out here shooting all the balls,” or something like that. I said “You know what, I remember beating you guys a few times in the playoffs,” and he said, “Yeah you guys got us a couple of times,” I said, “You know what? I think my ring count is a little higher than yours.”

He enjoyed that. That was like two old dogs barking back and forth at each other, it was great.

I can’t imagine Tim Duncan trash talking to somebody. That’s like Joey Crawford officiating a whole game and not giving out a technical to someone. But, apparently, he does – and it’s pretty poor trash talk at that. He didn’t even mention any cereal brands. Weak.

Oh, and incase you were wondering, Kobe has five rings to Duncan’s four.

What do you think?
