Kobe Bryant and President Obama talking trash

The 2009-10 Lakers met with President Obama yesterday, which happened to only be a few days after Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls beat Los Angeles 88-84.

Obama you see, is a Bulls fan. So naturally, the president saw an opportunity to zing Kobe. What Obama probably wasn't ready for, was for Kobe to zing him right back. Via ESPN LA:

Derrick Rose may have your number," President Obama lightheartedly jabbed at Kobe Bryant as the team posed for a photograph after presenting the president with an autographed replica 2009-10 championship banner, like the one that hangs at Staples Center.

"I said, 'If he calls that number, I'll be sure to pick up after the fifth ring,'" Bryant quipped back -- referring, naturally, to the five championship rings he has.

And boom goes the dynamite.

First, what do you mean by trouble?  How would any player get in trouble for bantering with The President?  President Obama loves this kind of stuff.And second, is there another player in the NBA who can actually say this?  The only other active player with 5 RINGS is Derek Fisher and, although I love D. Fish, he's not Kobe.
