“I would have smacked the hell out of him no question about it.” says LA Lakers mega star Kobe Bryant. But who is he talking about and why is he talking about him like that? We all know that statement is pretty out of character for Kobe.

He is referring to, recently fired Rutgers University head basketball coach, Mike Rice, regarding his coaching techniques. Take a look at the video below to get a better idea of why Bryant felt so strongly about his coaching practices.

OK, now that we are all on the same page, take a look at the interview of Bryant speaking to Jim Rome about the Rice situation, courtesy of TMZ.

Listen, that guy should never have put his hands on those players! If one of those kids belonged to us, we’d be discussing options with our attorneys! In the words of Charlie Murphy, that guy was a “habitual line stepper!” We’re not advocating violence, but we hear Kobe loud and clear!
