Oh, so he's NOT A RAPIST -- only another philandering N BA star whose urges of the night outweighed his marriage vows. MY MISTAKE. YO.
How many men have done this...are doing this?

Is that justification? No, However, he's still human and by definition: Falliable. The past is the Past. People Can and Do overcome adversity. Its what makes us stronger.

Im sure the brilliant Halo around your head makes it harder to see this however, Kobe is a Man; He's gonna make mistakes. Hopefully, thats the biggest of them, but thats between him and his wife anyway. Focus on Kobe the Player big guy!

Hey just be happy you dont have the whole world watching your every move, I bet there would be stuff that would leak about you that you would not be proud of either, especially if you were in kobes shoes at that time, meaning your 24, with his fame, with his skills, money and looks, not so easy to stay away from trouble when your that popular.

Listen for Mark Jackson's annoying speaking pattern riddled with overused cliches today. Its a wonder he can order food and dress himself with such a limited vocabulary.

"Momma, there goes that man."

"Excuse me, I have a meeting with the rim!"

"You're better than that!"

"That's a grown man move."

"Come get in my poster!"

"NOT ON MY WATCH!"

"Time and time again ... we see ..."

"Oh -- my -- goodness!"

"Won't Go!"

"And all of a sudden, it's an x point game!"

"That's just solid (or fundamental) basketball."

"...that's trusting your ability."

Nah. "I DON'T GET NO RESPECT... NO RESPECT AT ALL" was repetitive but entertaining. Mark Jackson is repetitive and stupefying.

Finally, somebody from L A says something I can agree with....

No, the Celtics fans hate them, too. YOU KNOW, THE GUYS WITH THE MOST RINGS ?
Believe it, Orlando, the one team the Fakers ALWAYS fear is BOSTON.
See, Orlando, why Fakers fans are pretty much despised around the country ? Instead of being embarrassed about their best player, indicted for rape, they make him the most popular guy in town.
Fear the Celtics? I don't think so.

Respect them.....yes.

Ok, so they have 3 more championships than the Lkers.....Big deal. Coming from a fan of a team who has yet to win 1 game in the NBA finals we all should put your comment in perspective...A bitter fan eating sour grapes.

We can list NBA accomplishments till the cows come home. It's irrelevant since what matters is THIS series. Lakers and Orlando with Orlando faced with the need to win 4 out of the next 5 games against the Lakers.

Tall order. Doable?....Of course, anything is doable.

Probable?....We'll see!

GO LAKERS!!!
