Kobe to Derek Fisher: You’re Welcome

 Kobe BryantKobe Bryant, sultan of sentiment, on new Thunder flop-master point guard, Derek Fisher:

“Look, we don’t get five championships by being sympathetic towards each other and kissing each other’s ass during the game. I’m going to demolish him. He understands that. If he switches off on me in the post, there’s going to be problems. I’m sure he’ll put an elbow right in my back, and that’s why we love each other.”
