Well the jack ass knows there are people out there who want his money. Don't cheat on your wife, and don't emphatically deny it, until science proves you are lieing. I thought Kobe was a smart guy, but apparently not. I don't hate the Lakers...I could care less about the NBA. I dont' like Kobe because he is a liar and a scumbag end of story.
Bingo. I don't hate the lakers. I really just hate Kobe and Payton, b/c they are the two most arrogant guys in the league IMO. I respect the hell out of Shaq, and still kinda like Malone, even though he should of finished his career in Utah.
Kobe, talent-wise, is alot like T-Mac. A great athlete by himself, but can't make his other teammates better. That's why I would love to start any team with someone like JKidd instead of Kobe. Ya, Kobe can do incredible things on the court, but he can't lead. The ONLY reason Kobe is the go-to-guy in the 4th quater is b/c Shaq can't hit free throws. If Shaq could hit 65-70% of his free throws, then he would be unstopable in the 4th quarter. JKidd, on the other hand, not only puts up almost the same numbers as Kobe, but makes his teammates better.
