Kobe Bryant couldn't turn it off if he wanted to.
In a SportsCenter interview with Neil Everett, Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic shared a story about Bryant talking trash one time when they were playing.
Earlier in the interview, Nurkic discussed how Bryant was his idol growing up in Bosnia, and the first time he played against him was such an emotional moment, he had to walk away from his teammates on the plane ride home and reflect on how he just lived his dream.
But every game against Kobe wasn't as inspirational.
In another contest, Nurkic remembers, Bryant was living at the foul line.
