NFL Hall of Famer Jim Brown calls out Kobe
Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown didn’t hold back his opinions when it came to the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant.
During the Arsenio Hall Show this week, Brown called out Bryant on numerous things, including Bryant’s relationship with Shaquille O’Neal and his childhood upbringing.
Brown noted that Bryant “threw Shaq under the bus,” said the Lakers star is “confused” about coaching because he grew up in another country, then referenced his 1967 summit of black athletes to discuss Muhammad Ali’s anti-war stance and said, “If I had to call that summit all over, there would be some athletes I wouldn’t call. Kobe would be one of them.”
Bryant made his season debut for the Lakers on Sunday and recently signed a two-year, $48.5 million contract extension that received much criticism.
Bryant fired back at critics, defending himself and his new deal.
It wasn’t the first time Bryant has responded to detractors this year and it’s safe to say he’ll have something for Brown.
