Superstar Kobe Bryant may still be on the mend due to a knee injury, but the five-time NBA champion can still draw a crowd when it comes time for him to talk to the media.

On Friday, the Los Angeles Lakers were finally able to snap their losing streak with a win over the rival Boston Celtics. Along with finally getting back in the win column, some interesting news broke concerning Bryant and former head of the players union, Billy Hunter.

Hunter is not pleased with the way things went down in terms of his dismissal from the union and his recent lawsuit that was dismissed by a Los Angeles judge. Bryant, on the other hand, was happy he could start to distance himself from Hunter and had some choice things to say according to Howard Beck of Bleacher Report:

“Of course, it should have been (dismissed),” Bryant told Bleacher Report on Friday, in his first public remarks on the case. “It’s unfounded. It’s just silly.”

Bryant didn’t stop there as it became clear he’s not a fan of Hunter and his claim involving the future Hall of Famer:

“He’s full of s—; that’s what I thought,” Bryant said Friday, recalling his reaction to Hunter’s claim. “I was shocked, more than anything else. Just shocked. It’s one of those things, it just kind of comes out of left field.”

It’s been almost a year since Hunter’s firing and the shockwaves are still being felt. Hunter helped the players end the lockout that threatened to cancel an entire NBA season, but things got ugly shortly after the league was back open for business.

Former Laker and president of the player’s union was also major piece to the puzzle in terms of Hunter’s lawsuit and allegations. Although Fisher is no longer the president with Chris Paul taking over, Hunter was adamant that the veteran point guard had taken a back-room deal to end the lockout.

Despite the allegations from Hunter pointing to Bryant and Fisher, the dust is finally starting to settle and hopefully Bryant’s comments help put the matter to rest.

      That’s what I was thinking

    Most Lakers fans are confounded at the Lakers FO for not signing enough top tier players to win and also for not making trades that are beneficial to the Lakers.

    Well be confounded has caused Lakers fans to lash out against Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak and this confounded behavior has transferred over to the players such as Pau Gasol,Injured Steve Nash,Injured Kobe Bryant also the Lakers fan base has gotten hostile towards the coach Mike D’Antoni.

    Yes not to mention even the young guys we have who are playing unbelievable basketball given the circumstances and how young they are keep getting confounded fans whining about every little thing they do wrong.Some of those young players we have are putting up great stats and still improving.Good job.

    Billy Hunter is a person Kobe Bryant has a beef with and we as Lakers Nation should turn our confounded behavior towards the Idiot David Stern and Billy Hunter IMO.

    We need to rally behind the Lakers organization during this most difficult time in team history.No need to be angry at the Lakers,they will be back.

    Support the Lakers!

    Go Lakers.

      Did you just learn the word, “confounded?” lol

    Seriously, I love that you guys have the access and insight to be able to report on things like this, but, I mean… REPORT. Give some context, backstory, related posts, a link to Wikipedia, SOMETHING both for the sake of both fans just learning of this story, and for proper writing in general. This is hardly the only example of this type of post on the site, but it is among the most egregious, and recently I’ve noticed it more and more. Certainly no one expects you guys to be professional journalists, but if you’re going write a story, try to write the whole thing.

      I couldn’t agree more.

      Ryan is generally one of the most informative writers on this site but, as you said, this story is full of holes.
      Links, back story, something to put things in context.

      Great headline but woefully lacking story.
