Kobe Bryant played 20 years in the NBA.
He started his career in the mid-90s, when the game was a tad bit more bruising and hard fouls were just simply fouls.
So when Stephen Jackson was asked the absurd question “do you think Kobe Bryant could handle this league with it being more physical inside?” by a reporter, he answered it as politely as you possibly could.

Simply put, yes, one of the greatest players to ever pick up a basketball can play in the BIG3.
Or maybe the reporter simply was trying to throw the doubt out there with the hopes that Kobe would take it as a challenge and come out of retirement? I’ll go along with anything at this point to see Kobe dominate in a half-court game.
