Jim Brown Takes Shot at Kobe Bryant

NFL legend Jim Brown slammed Kobe Bryant during an appearance on the Arsenio Hall show last year, saying the Los Angeles Lakers' star threw Shaquille O’Neal under the bus and is “somewhat confused about our culture because [Bryant] was brought up in another country.” Naturally, Bryant took offense to Brown’s thoughts…and we’d be willing to bet that the brutally honest Brown would stick to his convictions on this one.
