What Kobe Bryant says about the NBA Finals
Kobe Bryant said the NBA playoffs are going to be fun to watch, which might be a bit surprising considering how unpredictable they are.
While Kobe made a couple of comments that could help a number of teams make a playoff run, the Lakers superstar did have some words about his team’s chances.
“I don’t think anybody is gonna have a chance,” Bryant said on “SportsCenter” on Wednesday.
“I think it’s gonna be a close one.”
Bryant was referring to the Cavs and Lakers.
The Cavs were eliminated from the playoffs after losing the second game of their three-game series.
But Kobe didn’t say they’ll be out of the playoff race, saying they’ll “definitely be in contention” if the playoffs are to be shortened.
The Lakers won the first two games of their series and are favored to win the series if the series is shortened to seven games.
“The only thing I can tell you is if we play well and play our best basketball, I don’t really know what the playoffs will look like, but we’re in a position where we can definitely compete,” Bryant added.
“We’re not in a playoff position, but if we can win one of these games and win one, I think we’ll definitely be in a place where we’re competitive.”
