Ray Allen opened up about his on-court relationship with the late Lakers and NBA legend Kobe Bryant.

Allen said there was no trash talking between the two superstars, but just mutual respect.

“Honestly, no. Between me and Kobe, there wasn’t any trash-talking. There was a mutual respect. The trash-talking just never happened between us,” Allen told Macklin Stern of CBS Sports, via Lakers Daily.

Allen and Bryant faced each other numerous times on the court, including the 2008 and 2010 NBA Finals.
