    Ex-Laker Samaki Walker Says Kobe Bryant Sucker Punched Him Over $100

    Kobe Bryant has always been an aggressive guy, but apparently way back in 2002 he had an especially short fuse.

    On Tuesday, former teammate Samaki Walker joined the Brown and Scoop podcast and discussed an incident in 2002 during which Bryant sucker punched him over a $100 bet.

    “We got into it. I’m still figuring it out to this day actually. Now, real talk, it was a situation, it was probably one of the craziest, most immature situations. The situation from what I understand was over, what, 100 bucks?”

    Walker claims that Kobe won a half-court shot contest after practice one day and the custom was that everyone had 48 hours to pay him $100. Before that time was up, Bryant approached Walker on the team bus wondering where his money was. Walker said he didn’t have it and put his headphones back on. Kobe immediately sucker punched him and then according to Walker “all hell broke loose.”

    Seems like Samaki had it coming to me. Should've paid up.

    Ahh Kobe, treating the team bus like a prison exercise yard. What a guy.

    It was just a leadership punch. He has to keep his team in line.

    Walker said he had 48 hours to pay, and Kobe came up to him before the 48 hours was through. Sounds like Kobe was a punk, but that's no surprise.

    That's how Walker tells it. It could be he was intimating he wasn't going to pay.

    that was during the time he wanted to get some street cred? before tattoos or post tattoos?


    another interesting read on that site: "peyton sits on female trainers face" going to have to read that.

    What I want to know is why the Rockets even tried to go after Walker way back then.

    His game was trash. Seriously, trash. 2 decent seasons in Dallas and then....nada

    Does it really surprise you?

    The Rockets went through about a billion garbage 4's in the early 00's.

    Eddie griffin was not trash... had the potential to be a true stretch 4 which at the time the league still hadn't seen..had serious alcohol issues that I wished he could have tried to control...sad he's gone
