Lakers guard Kobe Bryant claims that he would have "smacked the hell" out of Rutgers coach Mike Rice if he had been on the receiving end of his videotaped treatment of players.
Bryant, who didn't attend college, made the comments on Jim Rome's Showtime show.
Bryant went on to say, "No question about it. No question about it. That probably wouldn't have been the best way to react to it but that's how I would have reacted to it."
Rice was fired after ESPN aired the footage released by a fired assistant coach.
