It looks like newly-signed Los Angeles Lakers power forward Brandon Bass is doing what he can to get on teammate Kobe Bryant's good side.

Bass recently spoke of the Black Mamba, saying he is arguably the NBA's best player when healthy.

"We have arguably the best player in the game still. When (Bryant) is healthy he is a monster still. If he is healthy he's right up there with the best players in the league, that's LeBron or whoever the best players in the league are. When Kobe is healthy, 19 years in the game he is still elite."

Kobe hasn't had a fully healthy season in years, and has been out of his prime for a while. Not sure anyone can agree with this to be honest.
