Linsanity has officially caused people to suffer from insanity. Joking or not, asking Kobe if he would guard Jeremy Lin if Lin was having another good game is just insane.
“I know who he is, but I don’t really know what’s going on too much with him,” said Bryant of the Chinese-American sensation. “I don’t even know what he’s done. Like, I have no idea what you guys are talking about. I’ll take a look at it tonight though.”
Asked again about the “Linning” or “LInsanity” excitement that’s been sweeping the globe, Bryant said, “I don’t even know what the [fudge] is going on. What the [fudge] is going on? Who is this kid? I’ve heard about him and stuff like that, but what’s he been doing? Is he getting like triple doubles or some [stuff]? He’s averaging 28 and eight? No [stuff].
“If he’s playing well, I’ll just have to deal with him.”
Finally, asked if he would consider guarding the upstart Lin, Kobe added, “Jesus Christ. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.”
