LOS ANGELES - Kobe Bryant was talking about basketball with Zorro La Bamba of The Sports Bet Gazette.
He was asked about the Lakers and if they will ever return to the greatest of years past.
Kobe, who isn't shy replied, "Yeah, once I get myself healthy and back on the court sure."
He was then asked what he thought about the way that Justin Bieber's musical career was spiraling downward.
Kobe shook his head and remarked that for all practical purposes the spoiled brat from up Canada way is done. Bryant explained that Justin's career is pretty much over and there is no one to blame but the man or rather the kid in the mirror.
Kobe pointed out that last December he had a talk with Justin at Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's house and he told him then that he needed to gear down or else he would end up like the Dixie Chicks, Andrew Dice Clay, or Lady Gaga.
The Lakers super star said that Bieber ignored his advice and now he is peeing in his pants at the thought of being deported and banned for life from ever returning to the USA.
