Reporter: “Can you guard them?” [Them being the Thunder.]
Kobe: “Excuse me?”
Reporter: “Can you guys guard them, as a team?”
Kobe: *Fierce look of disdain* “No.”
The facial expressions Kobe makes after saying “No” should have had the rest of the ink-stained wretches in the room cracking up. Kobe’s dismissive nods that follow might be my favorite non-verbal NBA expression since Amare’s eyebrow raise at Blake Griffin.
If you look closely, you can almost see a “What the fuck is this clown talking about?” smirk on Kobe’s face as he turns to get up from his chair.
