Kobe Bryant Defends Westbrook, Discusses Media Criticism of Champions

Players in this post:
Kobe Bryant Russell Westbrook

We knew from Ahmad Rashad’s interview earlier in the year that Kobe Bryant has a lot of respect for Russell Westbrook who he said “plays mean like I did.”  So it’s no surprise that Kobe would come to Westbrook’s defense after Russell attempted 43 shots in a game by tweeting out a meme and the fact that The Goat once attempted 43 shots in a NBA Finals loss.

He also talked about the cycle of media criticism each player has to go through but in the end the only thing that really matters is rings because you #CantCritiqueRings.
