This may be the first time I’ve heard a 6’1 man be called a midget. However, in the NBA that is considered small. The Black Mamba had some playful words for his ex-teammate and one of his best friends Derek Fisher.
“Same result as all the times we played one-on-one in the gym,” Bryant said. “I love him, but he’s a midget.”
Bryant was referring to the back-to-back jumpers he made over Fisher to give the Lakers a 78-76 lead in Game 3 of their series against the Thunder. The Lakers eventually would go on to win the game 99-96. Back-to-back games in the playoffs are rough, but the Lakers have a chance today at leveling the series at two games a piece.
