Kobe is my boy but get off that bull shit. You just lost your marbles, homey.  
 
Their opponents were taking group photos with the Dream Team before the game and were asking for their jerseys after the game.
An opponent actually walked up to Magic Johnson during a game to shake his hand after he made a free-throw.  
This is why there will never be another Dream Team...
 
Is there a +1000000 button on this post? Kobe just got PWNED
 
I gotta play devil's advocate on this one because I'm not sure what else he should say when asked a question like that.  Maybe he should have declined to answer it? I can't name any elite athlete at the top of his game that doesn't or shouldn't feel that they can beat anyone on any given day, that's the competitive nature that makes sports what it is fellas. The NBA athletes of today are bigger, faster, stronger, and shooting from much further than in years past. 
 
Isn't this just a rip off of the old Ty Cobb quote?  When he was older and asked about hitting off of new younger pitchers?
