Yea right Kobe lol.Years back he said some offensive gay slurs and was fined for it.Now all of sudden he is supporting this issue?Kobe is just being Kobe the media salva,self absorb and Jordan swag stealing punk he is lol.After hearing his premature opinions of how this USA team would defeat the Dream Team is not a display of competitiveness.Its a display of how disrespectful and uneducated this man is on any issue that deflects his egotistical pride.Lebron is the definition of what defines the game on basketball.

Ya very dismissive of a persons point of view and the proof Kobe has made homophobic gay slurs.Howard has aswell and the more your a tight ass.You will than realise how right I am about Kobe.The guy is not a role model or a great teammate.The brain works in patterns and he has matured after this tragedy of a season.Tho he has made public statements calling LA fans dumb which is wrong lol.I do agree they are dumb but he can't call his bitches out like Black Mamba publically lol.I understand how abusive it is for his bitches Black Mamba can be but its no excuse to take that public.

He's a grown man lol.I'm a dummy after proving you wrong.The brain thinks in patterns and even if Kobe somehow supports Collins coming out.Most people who use slander like "FAG" are guys who dislike gays in a personal way.Com e on Sammy you Kobe dick sucker this is the same guy who throws his teammates under the bus,plus the coach and even Phil before retiring.He even insulted all the Laker fans by calling them stupid lol.This is not a guy I would doubt being media salvaged and will support any big issue that increases his popularity lol.

You know I'm right lol.If Lebron said "gay slurs I'll be on his ass."Sammy your a very sheepish guy lol.I remember I warned Bewitch years back that all athletes are self arrogant punks.Never underestimate the self your image popularity.Kobe does it well but his body language is like a infant.He is too open expressing himself.
