Kobe Bryant’s Plan to Contain Leandro Barbosa

This article on Leandro Barbosa winning the NBA’s sixth man award includes a bizarre and perhaps mildy offensive comment by Kobe Bryant.

“Give him a soccer ball,” the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant said when asked what could be done to stop Barbosa. “Tell him Brazilians should be playing soccer, not basketball.”

We’ll see how that plan works out in game two, I guess. I can’t say it makes any less sense than Phil Jackson’s “It’s hard out here for a pimp” comment.
