Kobe Bryant

Chinese BBall Superior To NBA

'They Let You Play Over There'

10/11/2013 1:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kobe Bryant has Chinese envy -- at least when it comes to basketball -- claiming the rules in the Far East make it a real man’s game ... because “out here, you can’t even touch a motherf**ker.”

Kobe's diss to the NBA came during a candid moment in Vegas with Floyd Mayweather earlier this week ... when the two began talking about the differences between basketball in China vs. the NBA.

“They let you play over there,” Kobe said … adding, “out here they change the rules up and sh*t. You can’t even touch a motherf**ker. You can’t touch a n***a.”

Kinda strange coming from Kobe ... considering he has a reputation for begging NBA refs for calls.

Calls to China … weren’t made (c'mon, international calls ain't cheap!)

Ever notice how they always find other countries to be better then the USA, but they never move to that other country? The reason is they know only in the USA will be owners of these teams and the stupid fans will pay them millions to perform on the field or on the court. If he played in China he would get bowl of rice per day and a hard floor to sleep on at night.
Let's hope some of these thug overpaid so called sport stars finally move out of the USA our country would be better off without them.

Rules evolve Kobe. Basketball wouldn't be the game it is today if they didn't.

Kobe complaining about this particular rule and its enforcement is hypocritical.

And stop using racist words. It makes you sound like an idiot.

kobe has been the beneficiary of countless phantom calls and whines to refs constantly. he should be grateful to the nba and how they call games. if he weren't so famous, he would foul out a bunch more than he has.
