Fox Sports’ Jason Whitlock was not among those impressed by Kobe Bryant’s Hollywood ending, when the Los Angeles Lakers legend dropped 60 points in his final NBA game.
“His narcissism and selfishness destroyed a franchise,” Whitlock said a day later. “The Lakers are a laughing stock, and just had the most embarrassing season we’ve pretty much ever seen an NBA team have.”
Then he accused Bryant of really only doing a pretty good Michael Jordan impersonation, one that apparently spanned his entire 20-year career: “The most fraudulent superstar celebrity athlete we have ever seen,” was how Whitlock summed the future Hall-of-Famer up.
Even the A-list stars in attendance at the Staples Center Wednesday night drew Whitlock’s wrath.
“And Jack Nicholson and everybody’s sitting at courtside celebrating this, standing ovation,” he said on Thursday’s “The Herd.” “That game last night was hot garbage.”
