J.J. Barea Billboard Takes A Shot At Kobe

If you’re J.J. Barea, it’s probably not going to be very often when you can say you’ve bested Kobe Bryant. So when the opportunity arises, you should probably take full advantage. That’s exactly what Barea has done with this billboard posted in his home country of Puerto Rico, which apparently translates to “Only my ribs hurt, but for Kobe it’s his ego.”

Ouch. Especially considering it’s aimed at a fellow Sprite spokesman.

I’m sure the pain of getting elbowed in the ribs and slammed to the ground by Andrew Bynum subsided a lot quicker than the Lakers’ pain of getting swept in the second round of the playoffs. But I have a sneaking suspicion that Kobe’s five championship rings will ease his sorrow.

    Who the hell is J.J. Barea? I am a Laker fan. His team beat my team. Fine. I have no problem with that. Hurting Kobe’s ego? He has 5 rings and 2 Finals MVPs. I am really rooting now for the Heat to burn the Mavs.

    He’s a Puerto Rican so who cares what he thinks.

    What a group of haters. I use glasses but still I can see this is a Sprite billboard not JJ’s. Paul, don’t worry, nobody cares what he thinks…EVERYBODY talks about what he DOES!!! However… I think the ring will speak for him!!
