Kobe Bryant Hisses Like A Snake On The Court, According To Jordan Crawford

Yesterday's installment of Dan Le Batard's ESPN podcast featured a segment in which Le Batard is joined by Wizards guard Jordan Crawford. The ensuing conversation isn't anything special, save for this anecdote about Crawford's experience matching up against Kobe Bryant (transcription courtesy of DC Sports Bog):

When I first played with Kobe—they call him the Black Mamba—but then he was doing like a little snake sound when he wanted the ball. It was crazy. It was crazy. It's like tsssss, tsssss. Like fishing. Tsssss, tssss. He do that. Everybody tells you he's gonna do it before you play him—like, ‘Wait till you hear him do this.' And then he [does] it, and it's like, what? He's really a mamba. It sounds like some kind of snake.

This has been your periodic reminder that Kobe Bryant is a strange and terrifying person.
