In a recent interview, DeMar DeRozan who grew up in LA, talked about the traumatic experience of playing Kobe at the tender age of 15.
From the National Post:
Was he trash talking a 15-year-old kid?Is it really cool DeMar? Then why do you have an average of 34% FG when you played against him in the last 2 seasons, when uou normally hit your shots in the mid 40's range. It's okay to confess, after all what else do bloggers like me have to do in the off season then investigate a story that is probably a fiction.
Was he? A little bit. Every time he got scored on, he really didn’t like that too much. It was cool, though.
Man, I am gonna miss Kobe when he retires, we will never have another person who hates to lose with every single fiber of his living body.
