Rubio talked trash with Kobe

Ricky Rubio is starting to talk trash. Rubio met up with Spanish friend and teammate Pau Gasol after Sunday's game -- then Kobe Bryant walked by. Kobe asked if they were talking about the 2012 Olympics, and Rubio responded by saying, "You know you're getting the silver medal. You know that." Kobe then challenged Rubio to a bet, which he accepted.
