Is it just me, or does Kobe look like a rabid rat when he makes his face that's supposed to show his teammates and the cameras how intense he is? That guy is so superficial and self-conscious he makes me wanna puke!

Yeah the scowl thing is kinda lame, seems like he enjoys the attention. Also his answers at the press conference were kinda corny... "2-0? Job done? I don't think so."

I mean I love watchin Kobe play, probably the best player in the league right now (at least for another couple years), but some of his actions just seem to pre-meditated, like it's planned. Never felt that way with the other greats.

His actions may be pre-meditated but at least it's clear that the guy has a fire for victory. I also noticed that LeBron gets a lot of praise around here...but IMO he is even more of an attention whore and it's apparent to me at least that Kobe has a desire to win that LeBron just doesn't posess at this point.

You'll get no argument from me. I think in the end, it may come out that LeBron is actually a bigger a-hole than Kobe ever thought about being! While I'm on a rant, what the f*#k is up with people who wear mouthguards then continually stick them out of their mouth the whole game (i.e. Lebron, Jameer Nelson)? I was watching game 1 of the Finals, and Nelson had his damn mouthguard hanging half out of his mouth DURING PLAYS! That kinda defeats the purpose, doesn't it? If I was Stan Van gundy, I'd catch him dangling that out of his mouth during a timeout, grab it & chunk it into the 16th row!!!

No but seriously, they are really stupid. Do they even have a purpose?

You bring up another whole vein of conversation with "for the next couple of years" comment on Kobe. Are we seeing with straight-from-high school players that they simply wear out after only actually being useful after the age they would've been college juniors? Examples KG, Kobe's knees and going back to Moses Malone and Chocolate Thunder, although who knows what those guys were putting into their bodies. These guys are barely in their 30's and they are breaking down like college-to-pro players don't till in their mid-late 30's. KG and Kobe are the earliest exaples of this. Saw somewhere yesterday that Kobe has to ice his knees 3 times daily! Don't blame them for getting paid, but does it even out when they could get a gig into their late 30's vs being completely washed up by 33? I'm biased because I used to like college b-ball and it's mostly watered down with average players and one-year wonders now.

yeah. im not feeling that face he makes. it really draws attention to his messed up teeth and just looks funny. honestly the face is a joke.
also i heard a laker fan say he looks like an ant. lol this had me cracking up because i never thought about it but yeah he looks like he could have been on "ANTS" the movie. (that is when he isnt making the face...)

just in general i'm tired of all these super cocky atheletes. players need to revert to the days when they were considred gladiators, not "artists" or whatever. prime examples of primo players that show the attitude of real winners: Dwayne Wade and Brandon Roy.

When Wade stood up and said "Not in my house" when he made that half court three, that was epic. He didn't go running to his team, he went to the people that really mattered, the fans. Look at baby Davis when he hit his game winner. He shoved some little kid. Fatass needs to learn some manners. players just need to recognize who they play for.

That kid that Big Baby "shoved" was standing on the baseline, if he didnt shove him...he would have most likely barreled over him. Which one would have been worse? There are plenty of examples of dumbass player moves besides that one. How about Antoine Walkers shimmy??

True, but i'm just biased against Davis. He's overrated and thinks he's better than he is. Plus, that was the first one to come to mind.

And i think the reason the kid was on the sideline was cuz he was trying to give him a high five. Granted that he was on the other team, so i guess there's reasoning behind it.

why the hell does a fan think it's necessary to give a player a high five. He's not in the game no matter how close he sits.
