Kobe Bryant struck down an issue with as much fierce and precision as one of the many times he has scored against his opponent. The whole idea on whether Bryant will definitely retire before or after his contract worth $25 million expires next season. “They’re ready to put me in my grave, man,” Bryant joked Monday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “I’m just trying to come back from this injury. I take things a day at a time. This is a huge challenge I have in front of me right now. I just want to come back from that.” Los Angeles Daily News

Given those circumstances, Sunday night's overtime win against the ostensible rival Boston Celtics seemed like a pretty good time for some celebration. The victory snapped a seven-game losing streak for Los Angeles, and point guard Jeremy Lin scored a season-high 25 points to get them there. So, in his post-game interview, Lin was interrupted by Nick Young, Jordan Hill, and Carlos Boozer for some classic hijinks. Everyone seemed to have a pretty good time: Everyone except Kobe, I guess. While he wasn't present at the game, Kobe was asked about the moment during an interview on Monday night's episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live." It appears that he wouldn't have had much patience for such antics (via SB Nation): Yahoo! Sports

What was the reaction in the locker room when they saw the video? KB: They still repeat some of the hashtags. We all call Kyle 'Machine Gun' Korver now anytime he hits a three... Anytime one of the players makes a play, one of the guys on the bench will throw out one of the hashtags. It's always a good time. Do you like the mean tweets by Jimmy Kimmel or the hashtag feature by Fallon? KB: They are both very hilarious and creative... I think the hashtag skit is probably the best, it requires a lot more skill, because it's all on the fly, it's very versatile, it can go in so many directions with it... The mean tweets, I can go to Twitter and search my name and find a thousand of those. The hashtag skit is probably my favorite of the two. HoopsHype
