i'm making it my life's mission to separate kobe the person -- singularly, hilariously crazy -- from kobe stans, who swear he's the second best player since MJ. one is endlessly entertaining, the other does not matter.

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 9 May 2017 03:05 (two years ago) link

Literally 90% of lakers fans believe he's the 2nd best and their argument is to just point to their ring finger

I missed this but would have voted seals

Although clays phrasing there makes it sound like Kobe had to finish Star Wars first before he could meet with john Williams which if real would get my vote for eternity

Seriously now I kinda want someone to work with Kobe to create a treatment for Star Wars 8 and flash animate it or something before the real thing arrives

“There was one time when Kobe, who I worked with for 18 years, was going back to play in Madison Square Garden, and he had just seen ‘The Dark Knight,'” said Pelinka. “Obviously, you guys saw that movie, and he’s like, ‘Hey, hook me up with dinner with Heath Ledger, because he got so locked in to that role. I want to know how he mentally went there.’ So, he had dinner with Heath, and he talked about how he locks in for a role. And Kobe used some of that in his game against the Knicks.”

Ledger posthumously won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as the Joker in “The Dark Knight.” He died during the film’s editing process in January 2008, six months before the film’s release, which presumably means Kobe watched a screener of the film before it was finished.

huh idk

omar little, Saturday, 19 May 2018 00:01 (one year ago) link

I think Pelinka is telling a tall tale.

EZ Snappin, Saturday, 19 May 2018 00:12 (one year ago) link

Machine Gunk Jelly (Spottie), Tuesday, 2 October 2018 16:02 (ten months ago) link

if you watch the vid you'll see Barnes is looking left but moves the ball slightly right towards Kobe's face, not as direct as the side view implies but enough of an feint that a normal human being without ice in their veins would have flinched.

omar little, Tuesday, 2 October 2018 16:22 (ten months ago) link

*a feint

if anything the above view answers some pressing questions i had about the veracity of the original angle and i'll allow that Kobe is a villain Barnes couldn't intimidate there

omar little, Tuesday, 2 October 2018 16:24 (ten months ago) link

pass fake to the right of kobes head he had no reason to flinch tbqh, prob the reason for kobes extreme nonchalance is he knew a timeout was coming therefor did not bother to guard the inbounder
