Kobe criticizes Nuggets fans for booing Melo
Question of the Day
“I said they were idiots for booing,” Bryant recounted.
Reminded that a day earlier he had characterized those frustrated fans as “stupid” for booing their own superstar, Bryant replied, “Stupid and idiots are synonymous.”
Idiots might be harsher.
“I don’t know,” Bryant said. “They’re close. They’re cousins.”
Either way, the Los Angeles Lakers star who regularly gets booed at the Pepsi Center himself, contends Anthony, his teammate on the 2008 Olympic gold medal team, doesn’t deserve similar treatment from his home crowd.
Anthony has been the subject of trade talk since refusing to sign a three-year, $65 million extension last summer. Two potential blockbuster trades with the New Jersey Nets have fallen apart.
Nuggets general manager Masai Ujiri said after the Nets halted negotiations on their latest megadeal Wednesday that he was still talking to several teams about his All-Star forward.
Artest, who famously declared upon his arrival in Los Angeles that fans should throw tomatoes at him if the Lakers didn’t repeat as champions, suggested Anthony should feel fortunate that fans are only hurtling insults his way.
“That’s nothing,” Artest said. “He should be happy he got booed.”
