"So what, he knows I'm a bad motherf*cker. I'm not really tripping. The fact is, they have Ewing and Robinson and those big guys, it's tough. If you're asking me, 'Can you beat them one game?' Hell yeah, we can beat them in one game. You didn't ask me if we could beat them in a 7-game series. In one game, we can beat them. No question about it."
That was some classic why Kobe is still my favorite player material right there. I'm also glad he pointed out that he doesn't think the current team could beat the Dream Team in a 7 game series meaning he doesn't think this team is better than the Dream Team. He just believes for 1 game they could win and I will give Kobe that possibility.
