AKRON, Ohio - LeBron James sat in the living room of his home and chatted with Rufus Reno of Sports Balls Illustrated Daily.
Reno asked the Miami Heat superstar what he thought about Kobe Bryant saying that he is the greatest player in the NBA.
LeBron laughed and said that ever since he has been in the league Kobe has been one of the most conceited players in all of pro basketball.
James added that he does not pay any attention whatsoever to what Kobe "Big Mouth" Bryant has to say.
He noted that it is amazing that Vino, as Kobe nicknamed himself, has not hurt his arm patting himself on his back.
James was asked if he would ever want to play on the same team as Kobe.
"Hell no!" he answered loudly. "Are you kidding me? I would have to literally rip the basketball out of his hands in order to take some shots."
King James went on to say that Kobe is the epitome of a ball hog. LeBron smiled and said that he understands that Kobe loves basketball so much that he even sleeps with a pair of basketballs in his bed.
