HOLY FUCK KOBE BRYANT

Sorry about everything, KobeExcuse our language, but what the hell is going on right now?

We didn’t watch this game, despite having plenty of time to. Saw the headline this morning and we’re actually visibly shaking.

Our love affair with hating Kobe Bryant is officially over as of this morning, washed away like ridiculous allegations from some young slut from Colorado.

Washed away like so many silly jabs and pokes from the Big Getting Old.

Washed away like people washing their cars and saying, “man that Kobe Bryant can’t wash a car as good as me.”

Washed away like a bunch of other stuff that we can’t think of at the moment.

Kobe Bryant has done the impossible – he’s made us happy for him, and he’s made us want to root for him.

Kobe Bryant is officially a legend.

I still don’t like the guy, but that is amazing – especially from the guard position.

kobe bryant wins, infinitely.

Welcome aboard the bandwagon. Please watch your step as your board. Enjoy the ride.

Suckas!

I’ve been a Kobephile for a long time now, and it feels wonderful to read and hear all these people who can’t/couldn’t stand the guy having to give it up for him. Welcome to the bandwagon, all ye smacked asses.

wow, congradulations Kobe! i know you can do 100! naples, Fl

i always hated kobe and thought he was over rated. he has proven me and all the haters wrong, you can still hate him, but now you have to respect him, like we respect jordan magic bird..

What’s that I see on the schedule? LA Lakers at NY Knicks on Tuesday, January 31st?

This could be the perfect storm. A scorching-hot, newly popular Mamba, facing a demoralized team that starts a 5-foot-7 shooting guard.

Like Charles Barkeley once said, “Kobe Bryant may be the best one-on-one player in NBA, ever.” Too bad his selfishness hinders him to becoming the best player period.

9 Artie January 23, 2006 at 3:41 pm

selfish? if passing the ball to your teammates means reducing the chances of a succesful basket by 50%-75%, how can you call that selfish?

maybe the winning formula for the lakers is kobe scoring 50 plus. if phil jackson focuses on that type of game plan maybe the lakers would have a better record.

selfish or realistic?

10 The Cavalier January 23, 2006 at 4:16 pm

Artie I agree in theory, but in reality:

1) Kobe can’t stay hot like this 82 games.

2) What happens to the Lakers if he gets hurt?

11 KBlover January 23, 2006 at 4:34 pm

With the frantic pace Kobe is scoring and the strain he is putting on his body, he might not be as effectively in April. Lakers definitely need help.

12 ARTIE January 23, 2006 at 4:42 pm

Cavalier whats up,

Well on your first point… i don’t think kobe is just “hot”, i think he has passed a certain threshold and reached another level, and is playing to his full potential. 81 points in a 2006 NBA season doesn’t just mean you got the “hot hand”. It means your not fucking human.

On your second point… if kobe gets hurt the lakers are in the shithole regardless of the game plan.

13 ARTIE January 23, 2006 at 4:48 pm

frantic pace? strain? where not talking about an NFL running back here. Great NBA players don’t succumb to fatigue just because it’s the end of the season or playoffs. Plus how old is this kid, he’s still in his late 20′s right?

14 JuanCarlos January 23, 2006 at 4:58 pm

81 is impressive, but im still not sold. Kobe can have great nights and he will have nights when he struggles. The problem is, he doesnt seem to realize or refuses to. Case in pt: 2004 finals against pistons, when KB shot 39% from the field and appeared exhausted against Prince’s defense: “I will just have to shoot through the slump”..It didnt work. They went on to lose the series in 5.

15 The Cavalier January 23, 2006 at 5:15 pm

Artie I do love Kobe again (I also loved him back in 01 or so), but his game is still too much outside, which does need a certain amount of staying hot. Kobe doesn’t go to the hole or post up with nearly enough regularity.

I’m obviously biased, but I’d still rather have LeBron on my team than Kobe. He doesn’t rely on the outside shot as much.

16 yo...... January 23, 2006 at 5:28 pm

damn…how do i get my hands on that game tape??!!

17 Mattressmonsterz January 23, 2006 at 7:38 pm

Quite simply the greatest one game persformance in the history of team sports…he needed to score those points, it was not as if he just saw Jalen Rose on defense and his eyes lit up (like every other three in the NBA when matched up against Rose)…his team was down double-digits, and he just brought it. I am a new York Knick fan, never a great lover of Kobe Bryant, particularly the way he served up Shaq to the police in Colorado, but I straight-up get goose-bumps when I think of what he did last night. Good for him, all the haters can go cry in their sheets, he is the best player on earth. Mattressmonsterz

What you people don’t realize is that Kobe can pass with the best of them. When he gives off a pass, the receiver gets the ball in stride in perfect position to shoot. But the fact is that he works so much harder than anyone else and brings it every night he plays. He never gets credit for the hard work he puts in every summer before he arrives in training camp. The harder he works the more amazing his game. No one ever talks about his work ethic; his accomplishments come with hard work and a stealy resolve.

20 Amar January 25, 2006 at 8:08 am

anyone bought the game from google ?? i wanna know if its 3 q’s or the whole game..
anyway, i think he could go to 100 cuz hes just that good. peace

kb is the best basketball player in the world right now if you say he is not you are lieing you are all nothing but critics every body has critics does kobe read what you all are writing no so your hateing does not affect him it’s a free country but i will not hate you back

24 bigrod July 24, 2006 at 4:23 pm

Kobe is the best player in the league much better than lebron, wade,iverson,dirk,nash, billups,tracy, he will kill anyone in the league if they play one on one and everybody in the world knows its the truth rather you want to admit it or not. the 81 points he scored is just another example of how much better he is than everyone else in the league.

p.s…
he is not a ball hog their is no one to pass it to,no one can stop him or guard him
