Watch out or Kobe might instill his DNA in you
Why are the Lakers facing Kevin Garnett's Celtics in the NBA Finals? Kobe Bryant found a way to fill his teammates with Kobe DNA. This unfortunate turn of phrase was used multiple times during Kobe's interview with Stephen A. Smith Sunday night, and even made the front page of ESPN.com:
In perhaps the most uncomfortable sports media exchange not involving actual criminal litigation or OJ Simpson, the league MVP spent about 30 seconds teasing Stephen A. about how he accomplished this medical feat. "How did you do it, instill your DNA in other people?" Smith would ask. "Why would I tell you?" a mischievous Kobe would reply.
Missed opportunity of the year: Smith did not counter by asking "What, did you take the team to a hotel room in Denver?"
