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!)

Another reason why this tvvat should never be compared to his Airness. This douche is the biggest cry baby in the NBA.

Out here you get paid millions of dollars for playing. Over there you get thousands. So either quit the NBA and go over there or stop being a whiny hypocrite.

I'm sure Kobe is right. Back when Shaq was on the Lakers the refs would call fouls on Shaq just for turning to shoot and some idiot got hit because they were in his face. The NBA needs to fix its rules and actually let the players play. And penalize refs who go overboard.

Do they also let you rape people over there? Just asking, and use the N word which causes such a stir over here in the states? But then again, you have been out of the so called spotlight for so long, you have to run your mouth somehow to get attention. How's Vanessa holding up after a few nights with Brian?? Cat was away and oh how that rat did play! lol

Kobe needs to STFU about the organization that allowed his ignorant azz to make millions of dollars.

Davis is right. Blacks need to STFU until they themselves stop using this word before they get on their indignant high horse about others using it.
