Woj and Kobe- 'Holy Crap' Good

Unread postby peeker643 » Tue Nov 23, 2010 1:19 pm

Thanks to e0y2e3 for the heads-up on the link.

What a great, great read and a look at the guy you don't get to see opened up too often:

http://yhoo.it/gqJzlA

Privately, there are plenty of national-team elders and coaches who are
curious about how that chemistry will work in 2012. Mostly, they wonder
whether James will see it as his time, his team, with Bryant 34 years old.
From the return of the Miami clique to the arrival of Kevin Durant, it’ll
be a different dynamic, a different vibe.

For a moment, Bryant tried to answer it diplomatically.

“Um, I don’t know,” he said.

Only, Kobe Bryant did know – and finally said so.

“Actually, I really don’t give a [expletive]. I’m not curious about it.
Give me my [expletive] gold medal and then let me try to win another NBA
championship. Let’s practice, have a good time, and if you need me in the
last two minutes of the game, I’ll be coming in to pull the [expletive]
out.”

Pretty badass, really. I like how frank he was.

Kobe knows what his role is. Same role he had in '08. When the mental midgets from Miami start trickling down their legs in crunch time, Kobe comes in, takes over and saves the U.S. from international embarrassment.

Maybe he'll find a worthy pupil in Durant. He's the only superstar left in the game right now who has a chance of developing a lone-wolf mentality.

Wow, Kobe and LeBron are two peas in a pod. Exactly the same mindset.

Funny how Kobe has become what we all thought James was going to be here in Cleveland.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

What a contrast. LeBron felt he needed help from other superstars to win Championships. Kobe just stays put and takes on the challenge of making whatever teammates he has into champions. He changes their DNA to make them into winners.

Anybody besides me surprised that he credits Michael Jackson as being his mentor? I figured it would be somebody like Magic.

No more of a surprise than motherscratcher's mentors being Pee Wee Herman, Little John Rinaldi and Tiny Tim though.

Damn, it's like you have a magic Chrystal that can open a window into my soul. I've been a fan of Little John since I got the day off of school in 2nd grade so my cub scout troop go go watch a taping. At the end we all got to get up in front of the camera and wave. Some other kid took me out in order to get a better spot. As I watched later, my whole family laughed their asses off while I languished on the ground like POS. True story.

And Pee Wee Herman IS definitely a mentor as we have a similar taste in fine cinema.

But Tiny Tim...that fucker's dead to me. I think you know why. (Other than being actually, you know...dead.)
