Former NBA player Rashad McCants, who now plays in the BIG 3 league, says he would roast Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant if Bryant decided to join the BIG 3.
McCants plays for team Trilogy. The 34-year-old only played in 249 games in the NBA with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Sacramento Kings after being a first-round pick in the 2005 draft. However, that’s not stopping him from talking a little smack about The Black Mamba.
“I’m going to roast Kobe if he comes out there,” McCants told Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson on Scoop B Radio while promoting his book called Plantation Education: The Expectations of a Modern Day Student Athlete. “I’m at his dome immediately. Last two years I been playing around. I aint get no awards. They done pissed me off. I’m coming for everybody next year. I challenged everybody. Nobody responded. So I’m just going to go at everybody next year. I definitely think the money has to be right. I think that’s definitely an incentive that Kobe can push and make sure that players do have value.”
Rumors circulated in August that Bryant was considering joining the BIG 3, but his publicist quickly shut the rumors down. Bryant is currently focused on building his media empire. The future Hall of Famer is doing “The Punies,” a fun podcast for kids. Bryant also won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film called “Dear Basketball” in March, adding to his trophy collection.
In 1,346 career games for Los Angeles, Kobe Bryant cemented himself as the greatest Laker of all-time. He holds career averages of 25.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game. The 6-foot-6 shooting guard was an 18-time All-Star, two-time scoring champion, made the All-NBA team 15 times, was a two-time Finals MVP, and won five NBA championships.
