Kobe Bryant amused by Nick Young’s impersonation of him

For all season long, Kobe Bryant has offered plenty of instructions toward Nick Young.

How to tap into his scoring instincts. How to become a more complete player. How to scrutinize film. The critical feedback apparently goes off the court, including Nick Young’s recent attempt to conduct an interview pretending he’s the Black Mamba himself.

Well, with Young insisting the Black Mamba feels no pain from his fractured left knee because such animals don’t have bones, Bryant provided a little bit of a biology lesson.

“Clearly, he doesn’t watch Discovery Channel or Animal Planet,” Bryant said. “But other than that, it was good.”
