The Timberwolves held their own in a 106-101 loss to the Lakers on Sunday night. With fellow countrymen Pau Gasol and Ricky Rubio sharing the court, some friendly trash talk was expected. I’m sure there was some chatter going back and forth in Spanish during the game, but the trash talking was done after the game. When Kobe Bryant passed Gasol and Rubio in the hallway, he and Rubio threw some friendly jabs about the Olympics back and forth. Check out this video that Marca.com shared with us:
“You talking about London?,” Bryant asked Gasol and Rubio outside the locker rooms of the Target Center.
“Oh yeah,” Gasol said.
“You’re gonna be there?” Rubio asked Bryant.
Kobe said that he was, to which Rubio responded: “You know you’re getting the silver medal. You know that.”
“S*** . I’m taking bets! … If I win I get the keys to Barcelona.” Kobe fired back
Nice to see the new guy isn’t intimidated by the best player in the NBA.
