Kobe Bryant would’ve ‘smacked’ fired Rutgers coach Mike Rice
- Updated: April 12, 2013
Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant wouldn’t have taken any nonsense from ousted Rutgers head coach Mike Rice. In fact, he would have retaliated had the coach used violence as a means to motivate him.
That is the response one would expect from the Los Angeles Lakers all-star, who has made his living as an alpha male. The 34-yeard old guard went on to say that his reaction might not have been the most appropriate, but it is something he would have done anyway.
Rice came under heavy fire when ESPN released video of the coach pushing, verbally abusing and throwing basketballs out of frustration at his player. The coach was fired the day after the video became public.
Rome asked Bryant if he would have really “smacked” his coach at the age of 18. Bryant then responded by reminding the host that he was “going at it with Shaq” in the NBA at that age.
