Kobe Bryant is the type of guy to tell it like it is. He doesn't beat around the bush, he just gets to the point. And when asked about the recent success of New York Knicks point guard and Palo Alto native Jeremy Lin before his Lakers take on the Knicks, Kobe shot straight from the hip: "I dont even know what he's done."
Obviously Kobe isn't watching a lot of SportsCenter, or reading a lot of blogs, so I doubt he's been part of the Lin fervor over the past week or so. Just look at some of his quotes:
"I know who he is, but I don't really know what's going on too much with him. I don't even know what he's done. Like, I have no idea what you guys are talking about. I'll take a look at it tonight though."
When asked agin about Lin Kobe reiterated his ignorance about him:
Who is this kid? I've heard about him and stuff like that, but what's he been doing? Is he getting like triple doubles or some [stuff]? He's averaging 28 and eight? No [stuff]. If he's playing well, I'll just have to deal with him."
Would Kobe choose to guard Lin?
"Jesus Christ. Let's not get ahead of ourselves."
