Kobe Bryant Is Still Hungry and the Celtics Are On The Menu

After the Black Mamba consumed his dinner, he was asked about his meal and he replied, "Oh the Suns' defense? It tasted like chicken."

Even after finishing off the Suns,  Kobe Bryant  still appears hungry. He looks like a fiend and only another NBA title will satisfy his near insatiable appetite. I'm sure if you ask the Thunder, the Jazz, or the Suns, they will tell you all about it.
