He may have just single-handedly ended the peace movement.
Opinion Fun with Kobe Bryant's Mask
Picture This Sports Fan Has No Friends
He also likes the Patriots and Red Wings and Duke basketball and Alabama football.
In his defense, most men in L.A. wear makeup.
It is now the No. 1 Chinese-language newspaper in Eagle, Colorado.
"I've pretty much seen Kobe from afar my whole career," said new Lakers coach Mike Brown. "And he's just a shell of what he used to be, in my opinion. I mean, remember a few years ago when he had 81 points in a game? He only had 48 the other night. Forty-eight! It was sad to watch. Like seeing Willie Mays drop fly balls in the outfield for the Mets."
Former Lakers teammate Lamar Odom was dealt to the Mavericks before the start of the season and says it was a blessing.
"Kobe is my friend. We've battled together for championships," said Odom. "But I don't have the courage to be by him every day, watching him waste away. I just don't. It would be too hard to stomach."
Bryant leads the NBA in scoring at 30.3 points per game, but it's only the third-highest scoring average in his career.
"Numbers can be misleading," said Shaquille O'Neal, Bryant's longtime Lakers teammate. "His performances now are like when a dead body seizes a few times before the final light goes out. Kobe is probably the worst best player in the NBA ever."
News NBA Winter Classic to Feature 5 Minutes of Basketball Until Everyone's Hands Freeze and They All Go Inside to Play Video Games
"Basketball has a great heritage of playing outdoors in the winter," said NBA commissioner David Stern. "I remember as a young boy going outside to shoot baskets, quickly freezing and being like: 'Oh, shit, this was a bad idea. I'm going back inside.' This game will celebrate that."
Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant says he is excited to play in the first NBA Winter Classic.
"I grew up in Pennsylvania. We have some pretty harsh winters there," he said. "I remember going outside to shoot for a few minutes, freezing and then going back inside to play video games for the rest of the day. My love of playing winter basketball for a few minutes helped me beat Contra on Nintendo, because I'd just stay inside all day doing nothing. And I beat it without the cheat code! I can't wait to see what video games they have for us in Minnesota."
Kobe and Chris Paul would have made a great couple.
It's almost like most people in California are Lakers fans.
