The folks over at TMZ recently caught up with former NBA player Joe Smith and his wife Yolanda, and asked the couple their thoughts on Kobe Bryant’s return.
Smith was effusive with praise for Bryant. His wife, however, found a way to both compliment Bryant and take a dig at Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, calling him a disappointment.
Smith was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1995 draft. He was an incredible talent out of the University of Maryland, winning Naismith Player of the Year honors. In the NBA he was a journeyman, never fulfilling the expectations of a top pick.
Mrs. Smith may want to tread lightly on the “D” word about fellow D.C. superstars.
