Therefore, the famous Lakers Kobe Bryant encouraged him in the 2016 Finals.
“He gave me some extra motivation, man, in the most Kobe way. He said, ‘Man, I think Golden State is going to win a championship this year for sure.’
“Man, can you imagine Kobe saying that? He’s like my hero. We were eating, man, and a guy said that to me. I looked at this guy and said, ‘Dude, what are you talking about?
“I looked him straight in the eye and said, ‘No, they’re not going to win. What are you talking about?'” Irving said.
Irving said Bryant believed the Cavaliers and Warriors had a good matchup in 2016, but the Warriors have a “very good team” and have a good chance of winning.
“I said, ‘They’re not going to win this fucking season, we’re going to win this thing.’ And he said, ‘Dude, I mean Steph (Curry) is killing everyone this season.’ And I said, ‘Now I don’t want to hear that.
How about Steph, I have a lot of respect for Steph, but I’m going to blow him up,'” Owen said.
