Kobe Bryant lets his guard down after mismatch with Derek FisherPosted by Inside Hoops
After the Lakers’ 99-96 win, Bryant and Pau Gasol exchanged a few laughs about that stretch while sitting next to each other on the interview podium.
Gasol was asked by a reporter if he was surprised that Bryant scored so easily on Fisher.
Before Gasol could complete a sentence, Bryant interrupted.
“Surprised,” Bryant said incredulously. He then dropped his head down, laughing.
“Dude, come on, Fish is like 5-2,” Bryant said of the 6-foot-1 guard.
Gasol attempted once again to give a diplomatic response.
“He did a great job scoring on Derek tonight when he had the opportunity to,” Gasol said.
