Kobe Keeps it Real

Just in case any Lakers/Kobe fans stumble in here and read this, here's a disclaimer: I am a sane/rational person, and as such, this is not an indictment of Kobe Bryant's talent, like most Kobe haters, it's his attitude and behavior I can't stand.

If you didn't watch the game last night you missed this fine display of sportsmanship from Mr. Bryant. (Click on the picture.)

Again, there's no denying Kobe's greatness as a player, in my mind he's third only to MJ and Wilt as the greatest ever, but it's incidents like these that make me wonder how no one can see what a mediocre human being he is. Sportswriters and fans have been ragging on KG for being arrogant towards the competition, especially with the Celtics, but Kobe's behavior gets swept under all the mindless adoration of his talent. It sort of validates a quote from one of my favorite books, Animal Farm.

"All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others."

 

This is my two cents, thanks for taking the time to read and offer your opinion.
