FollowingÂ Team USA’s 80-69 win over BrazilÂ on Monday night, President ObamaÂ calledÂ Kobe BryantÂ a “competitor” and said he expects “a little trash-talking whenever the opportunity arises” for the Los Angeles Lakers guard.
Turns out, the President was right on the money.
After Obama wasÂ dealt a small dose of rejectionÂ when First LadyÂ Michelle ObamaÂ turned him down on a kiss cam, Bryant took a shot at Obama.
“PDA is not for everybody, you know what I mean,” Bryant said.
Then he backpedaled a bit.
“But he makes the important decisions, so it’s all good.”
ObamaÂ disagreed with Bryant’s commentsÂ about the 2012 Team USA beating the 1992 Dream Team,Â pointing out that the Michael Jordan-led ’92 squad never trailedÂ in a game like the U.S. men did Monday night.
