Kobe can transform himself, says Page 2

Has anyone mentioned this article by the Sports Guy yet? He mentions pro wrestling quite a bit, doesn't he? Way more than any other big name writer that I can think of.

You know, hating Kobe Bryant isn't as fun anymore now that apparently everybody else hates him too. I almost feel sorry for him. ALMOST.

Yes - you lose by 13 hours (The W) - but it looks like Kawshen deleted his post.

Whoops, that was an accident. Sorry.

To keep with the topic:

He's already a heel, in my book. I've not liked him long before not liking him was "cool". I went to college in Philly so I kinda had a jump on what his deal was. :)

He's a heel to just about anyone who isn't living in L.A. right now (except for Clippers fans). Of course, having seen him try and walk up to Shaq after today's warm-ups and greet him like nothing was wrong, he's now starting to remind me more of Waylon Mercy.

Although there was something neat about seeing him score 42 yet not get any points in the last 7 minutes and lose after Shaq fouled out and Miami's next-best guy playing on one leg. I love Shaq and all, but Dwyane Wade is my own personal Jesus.

All the while his occupying the ball on the wing is taking their next-best player (Odom) and keeping him from what he does best, since he could have taken Haslem/Laettner off the dribble on the perimeter any time he wanted. Simply using Odom to be a spot-up shooter in order to accomodate Kobe is handcuffing him from doing what he's best at.

Considering that by all rights Miami should have gone 0-2 on that mini-road trip, I'll take the two wins.

Yes, Simmons is a wrestling fan from way back. He mentions wrestling nearly weekly.

Someone recently called him out in an email for actually talking about wrestling too much ...

EDIT: Ah, here it is ...

    SG: Wow, this guy managed to antagonize three fan bases with one e-mail: Wrestling, bowling and NASCAR. That might be an SG Mailbag record. But here's my question: Are the Monster Truck fans outraged that they weren't included, or relieved that they weren't included? I'm leaning towards relieved. But I'm willing to discuss it.


I guess Greg wasn't too happy when he read this Kobe article ...
