Kobe's actually a lot cooler than, say, Jordan. Kobe married a non-black girl which caused his family to not attend his wedding, and declined playing in the Olympics for his marriage. He and his wife went through two children and a miscarriage, including Kobe's estrangement from his parents, without a media circus/attention whoring. Even after the sexual assault case (which was blown way out of proportion), he kept his marriage together for eight more years and, when he and his wife finally divorced, they settled their problems amicably and kept joint custody of their kids.

Even the Kobe-Shaq feud wasn't his fault; the dude went on trying to be the best, and Shaq hazed and antagonized Kobe for years. Despite this, he wasn't a giant dick about Shaq as Shaq was to Kobe, and he played the same way he always did. Plus he does a decent bit of philanthropic work and gives a decent bit of money to charity.

Guy's not perfect, but he's a pretty good guy.

I call it Peyton Manning disease. As much as he may understand the workings of the game, it undermines the coaching staff if he keeps doing it. Short term, it works though.

Sargun,

it sounds like you're either his publicist or have dreams that speak from your ass.

Kobe's family didn't attend his wedding because he banned them from it because they didn't agree to his insistence that she (met on a music video set) was a gold digger.

She stayed with him for 10 years, the minimum time in CA for the law to state she gets 1/2 of EVERYTHING he owns... She filed immediately after this occurred. So his gold digging wife, essentially stayed with him for 10 years, so she'd get the 150 million dollar payout - as his fortunes rose, so did hers.

And most of his charitable work, is lending his name - not money, not time, etc...

Wat.

Kobe drove it. He was pissed that Shaq got all the recognition. Now karma is biting Kobe because Bynum is pulling the same shiat on him(and the team).

He almost surely had a prenup, so that voids your entire argument if true.

Should we check or do you want to backtrack now?

No he couldn't. Players that good rarely if ever make good coaches; they can't relate to players that can't just go out there and bend the game to their will. Bird's about the best to make the jump, and even his success was somewhat limited.

Coaching the team is like sex with Kobe. Scream all you want, it's going to happen.

I dunno. Kobe just strikes me as the kind of guy that will succeed no matter what he does.

This. The legal system did its thing. His apology was sincere. The end.

Kobe's the kind of guy that could succeed at anything that he has direct control of. When you're a coach, you can work 23 hours a day on game planning/motivating/film breakdown and still not succeed, because of factors outside your control (players your GM gets, players not responding to you for personal reasons, etc). That's why really good coaches are so rare, and most rank-and-file coaches are just suits who clap a lot and wait to be fired.

Kobe: Alright, this is Play 1- Get me the ball.
Player: But you're not playing, you're the coach.

Just last week i asked my Laker buddy if he could see Kobe as a coach, after seeing this same sideline behavior in another game... My friend said 'no'... That Kobe is such a perfectionist, that he will hold everyone to his high standard.... Personally, that doesn't sound like a bad thing to me.

Check out KOBE DOIN' WORK, a short film directed by Spike Lee. Its just Kobe narrating a single game verse San Antonio, play by play, but i came away thoroughly impressed with the dude's basketball IQ. Not many people in the league on his level.

How the Lakers ended up with Mike Brown as coach, I'll never understand...dude is a turd. I'm not surprised Kobe feels like he needs to step in. That said, I'm loving every minute of it!

shiat - given his salary, Kobe should be taking tickets before and sweeping up after the game. Still, good the see the Lakers finally have a coach.

This is a very unique way to debate. I'm intrigued. Instead of looking it up and proving someone wrong, you say "You might be wrong. Should we check?".

Why not just check before throwing your hat in the ring?

Interesting.

Supposedly he blew off every Laker that tried to pull him aside to bring up pre-nups, I'm sure he appreciates your support, tho...

The funniest part is that he is wrong about the pre-nup.

Don't really know who's idea it was for his family not to show, but when their relationship was beginning the only reports I ever saw about the rift were either based on the fact that she was not black, and to a lesser degree he was too young to marry in general.

She stayed with him for 10 years, the minimum time in CA for the law to state she gets 1/2 of EVERYTHING he owns... She filed immediately after this occurred. So his gold digging wife, essentially stayed with him for 10 years, so she'd get the 150 million dollar payout - as his fortunes rose, so did hers.

From my understanding that is not entirely correct. First, she waited closer to 11yrs to file, so you have a bit of a loose definition of immediate. Also, she would have gotten half of their assets no matter how long they were married. Being married for 10 years just guarantees their marriage be considered "long term" which under California law allows for the courts to allow alimony for basically as long as the courts deem fit.

And most of his charitable work, is lending his name - not money, not time, etc...

How exactly did you quantify that? I don't have access to his financial records or any itineraries, which apparently you must, so could you give me a breakdown of the money he donates and how much time in a given year he spends doing charity work?

Yeah, telling the Colorado cops, on the record, that "Shaq just pays them off when this shiat happens." was totally proof Kobe is a very nice guy who treated Shaq great.
