Say what you will about Kobe Bryant, but he might be the best interview in all of sports. He’s candid, he doesn’t bite his tongue, and he rejects stupid questions like he was Dikembe Mutombo. Every interview with him is like a Gregg Popovich sideline interview, only a little bit longer and slightly more terrifying.

With a big showdown looming at Staples Center between the Clippers and the Lakers this Friday, Kobe Bryant held court after practice today and was asked about the Clippers being the new Showtime and their chances of winning a title, Chris Paul‘s impact, and his personal frustrations this year. Hat tip to the fine folks at the Los Angeles Times for the video:

    I love the way Kobe interviews. Kurt nailed it in his description. I also love the guy that starting off his question “yo Kob” as if they were best buds hahaha

    Welp this season is over god himself has spoken and told us the clips are title contenders. Was i supposed to think the Lakers were LMFAO.. Thank you captain obvious for telling me and everyone that isnt biased or retarded something we’ve all seen this entire season that the clips are top 2 in the west. So In other news kobe thinks the mayans were wrong for believing the world would end

    you mean to tell me that Kob, El Capitan told reporters he would only answer that
    specific question and that would be all.

    imagine if Kob said, phuck the clips, they are biatches!
