A little pre-Olympics smack talk never hurt anyone. After Sunday’s game between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Los Angeles Lakers, Kobe Bryant and Ricky Rubio began a friendly banter about the 2012 Summer Olympics. Rubio told Kobe that the US is going to have to settle for silver this summer and Kobe is willing to bet on that.
Rubio has taken the NBA by storm and Spain vs. USA is shaping up to be quite a game this summer. With the smack talk already beginning, it should be a game for the ages.
