Guest Kobe Bryant Talks Twitter, Golf and Confronts The Biggest Trash Talker in the NBA (November 10, 2009) BURBANK, CA- Talk show host George Lopez welcomed LA Lakers star Kobe Bryant to the premiere of his new late-night show, "Lopez Tonight" and let his in-studio audience join the Q&A game.
When asked, "Why don't you twitter?" by an audience member, Bryant responded, "Idon't even know how the hell to do it...I don't, I'm computer illiterate, I have no
idea what it is." Then, another audience member popped up who Bryant definitely
recognized, his fellow teammate Derek Fisher. Fisher teased, "I just want to know do
you remember which team won the Cowboys vs. Eagles games last night?" Bryant's
response was blurting off angry words in Spanish (all in fun) and admitting, "You
know what? I have convenient amnesia I cannot recall but I can't remember the last
time you guys won a playoff game. I can't remember that." Lopez had the last word of
course, declaring "The number one trash talker in the NBA, Derek Fisher."
Bryant felt he owed Lopez a gift and surprised him with a Scotty Cameron Kobe Bryant
putter, personalized with his full name, basketball number and in Laker colors. When
asked by Lopez, "You are at the top of your game as a basketball player, but with a
club in your hand what happens Kobe?" Bryant admitted, "I'm awful. No, I'm talking
about hitting like 350 a hole, I'm hitting grounders, from like top of the hill,
