Video Caption Contest: Kobe Bryant doesn't notice Chris Rock

June 4, 2010 |  4:44 pm

Kobe Bryant has remained stoic this week, usually uttering nothing more than clipped answers to reporters' questions. He's remained so obsessed with winning another championship that he even proclaimed that a Finals rematch with the Boston Celtics meant very little to him.

And he remained so focused in the Lakers' 102-89 Game 1 NBA Finals victory Thursday over Boston that he didn't even notice comedian Chris Rock trying to talk to him during a timeout. (Credit to Ball Don't Lie's Trey Kerby for the link.)

"I didn't know anything about it until it was mentioned to me after the game," Bryant said. "I didn't even know."

Readers with the best comment describing this interaction (or lack thereof) will be featured in tomorrow morning's links post.
