The journalist told how Donald Trump broke up the fight between Kobe and Jason Williams in the elevator in the 90s
Renowned sports columnist Jeff Perlman on The Ryen Russillo podcast told the story of how current US President Donald Trump broke up a fight between Lakers legend Kobe Bryant and former Nets player Jason Williams in the 90s.
“It took place in the elevator of the Grand Hyatt hotel, which was previously owned by Trump. The hotel was in the process of being sold and was being sold below its price. So, in the bodice were Trump, Jason Williams, Charles Oakley and a very young Kobe Bryant.
Jason Williams, who apparently had a bad reputation, said something to Kobe. I don’t remember the exact words, but it was something like “How are you, Kobe?” Kobe simply replied, “Okay …” Williams was furious because he was one of those old-school guys, like Oakley, who believed in some kind of code that you must treat others with respect.
Jason Williams charges Kobe Bryant and hits him in the elevator. I’m not a Donald Trump fan, but this is one of the few moments in which I would say he deserves praise. Donald Trump intervened and broke up the fight between Kobe Bryant and Jason Williams, ”said Perlman.
