Nice artwork. Both very cool images, but I think I prefer the first one with the #8 jersey. Feels more fun and appropriate for a video game cover.

That first one looks like he's really penetrating to the hole.

Well yeah. Everyone knows that Kobe was always forcing his shot.

It's fitting that statistically he's one of the worst closers in the history of the NBA.

Chauncy Billups also one of the worst clutch time players as well.

For a time Carmelo was by far the best.

Ignoring the stupidity of the headline from the mouthbreathing submitter, is using Kobe's image on the game covers OK with his family? Has his wife and/or his legal representation signed off on this?

It's relevant - and necessary - to consider the totality of a person's actions and words when they're being lionized on the cover of a video game.

When someone dies they are a absolved of all the terrible things they did while alive. Their jerkoff fanboys will enforce that rule.

I saw a great meme yesterday.

"Kobe would still be alive if he went to prison for raping that woman."

Bloomin Bloomberg: good to know the Court of Public Opinion is always ready to try and convict a man when the actual judicial system, with real lawyers, didn't.

//no one believes Kobe was a "rapist"
//Mamba mentality


Which is why I used his own direct quote. And even said "own" here to make sure you got it.

That's the thing: I'm not a fanboy. I HATED Kobe when he played. But I do believe in people being able to redeem themselves from an error in judgement and IMO, he did.

Rape/sexual assaults is not an error in judgment. You don't accidentally rape someone. You don't mistakenly assault someone.

Rape is an act. It is premeditated violence. Please treat it accordingly.
