I don't get the reason why he went at him like that, Pau passed him the ball but got fouled before it. KB is trying way too hard now to get a couple more achievements under his belt, smh.
He was trying to win the game. They were only up 2 and Pau has blown a few games with late game freethrow misses. And Kobe probably felt like "ah sh*t, this n*gga gon miss these freethrows". If you watched the game after Pau made the first Kobe gave him a hard dap and said something probably along the lines of "fu*king right n*gga". And he was on the line and got inside position for the rebound, if it would have came off Kobe would have rebounded it. He just wanted that win. Only Kobe is talked about for trying his hardest to win games, he meant no harm....and I'm sure Pau took none. If you want kisses and hugs get out of the NBA.
