Kobe Bryant: Lakers Star Trades Trash Talk With President Obama
Kobe Bryant traded some good-natured trash talk with President Barak Obama on Tuesday, at a charity event in Washington, D.C.
The pair were at a gift-wrapping event at a local Boys and Girls Club, when Obama, a longtime Chicago Bulls fan, launched a friendly salvo over Bryant's bow.
"Derrick Rose may have your number," the commander-in-chief said to Bryant.
Mamba immediately fired back with a snappy response of his own, saying "If he calls that number, I'll be sure to pick up after the fifth ring," a reference to Bryant's five NBA titles.
The event was sponsored by NBA Cares, and the celebrity-laden team packed toiletry sets for underprivileged kids and care packages for troops overseas.
