OK, so this has nothing to do with the Lakers' loss in Game 5 Tuesday night. It actually goes back to Friday, after the Lakers lost to the Nuggets in Game 3, and involves J.A. Adande on Around The Horn and Bill Plaschke calling Kobe an asshole. In a loving way, though.
It started when Andrew Bynum told reporters, "Maybe I just wasn't ready to play. I got there a little late, I didn't have as much time as I needed." A player not ready to play in the playoffs? This (obviously) set off all kinds of alarms with the media. So naturally, they asked Kobe about it.
This clip surfaced Tuesday and it's fantastic.
