The last televised NBA game before the All-Star break wasn’t without drama. Late in the 4th quarter, Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant and Oklahoma City Thunder guard James Harden had a verbal exchange. It wasn’t exactly friendly.
It broke down after Harden nailed a three (with Kobe guarding him) and then Kobe tried to answer. His shot was well off and that’s when the confrontation began. Kobe was frustrated by Harden all night, so this should come as no surprise.
Thanks to CBS Sports for the video.
