Kobe Bryant's trash talking is already in mid-season form

Friday October 3rd, 2014

Los Angeles Lakers fans can relax, as a new video out of the team's training camp shows Kobe Bryant not only has his game in proper form, but also his trash-talking swagger.

Jordan Clarkson was drafted by the Lakers in the second round this summer out of Missouri, and now he is living his dream of getting shook by Kobe Bryant, followed by the legend dropping some cold smack talk on him.

Clarkson will probably remember that "Don't hurt yourself" from Kobe for a long time, especially since it has been captured in all its slow motion glory and placed on the internet forever.

If this is now Kobe treats people in practice, it is no wonder Kanye was not smiling after their workout together.
