Jason Whitlock was not among those impressed by Kobe Bryant’s Hollywood ending, when the Los Angeles Lakers legend dropped 60 points in his final NBA game.
Jason While the world has been celebrating his career during its final season, capped by the Los Angeles Lakers legend scoring 60 points in his final NBA game, Whitlock feels there are other parts of Kobe that have been ignored amid the mass fawning.
“His narcissism and selfishness destroyed a franchise,” Whitlock said. “The Lakers are a laughing stock, and just had the most embarrassing season we’ve pretty much ever seen an NBA team have.”
He went on to accuse Bryant of really only doing a pretty good Michael Jordan impersonation, one that apparently spanned his entire 20-year career: “The most fraudulent superstar celebrity athlete we have ever seen,” was how Whitlock summed the future Hall-of-Famer up.
Even the A-list stars in attendance at the Staples Center Wednesday night drew Whitlock’s wrath.
“And Jack Nicholson and everybody’s sitting at courtside celebrating this, standing ovation,” he said on Thursday’s “The Herd.” “That game last night was hot garbage.”
