For J.J. Barea's sake, let's hope Kobe Bryant isn't planning on spending any time down in Puerto Rico this offseason. Because a billboard for Sprite was just erected (II) in Barea's native country—and it features a quote from Barea that would probably leave the Black Mamba seeing red. "A MI ME DUELEN LAS COSTILLAS, PERO A KOBE EL EGO," it says in big block letters. Translation: "Only my ribs hurt, but for Kobe, it's his ego."
Ouch. You do realize Kobe is going to see this at some point, right, J.J.? [via The Basketball Jones]
