    I'm still one of the most popular guys, whether they boo or cheer. Every billboard, on TV, the commercials. When you see those commercials, that's me. Everybody loves these commercials. Everybody loved the commercials when I first got here. So what's so different now. It's because there's a certain paper saying I'm acting funny because I've got money now. I've been making a million dollars before I even signed a contract this year. It's not about money. It's about us winning, and you're trying to blame everything on me like it's me. I'm not the one who told Cheeks he was fired. Y'all trying to make it seem like I'm Kobe or something. Like I've got a say so. I ain't got no say so.

    It's bad when people write stuff down and then people take you a certain way. That's the only reason people boo. People don't know me. You know what I'm saying?


Wow.

This is the main thing that scares me about the future of the Lakers. It's not like the Lakers have any cap room to sign good free agents anyway, but even if we did Kobe would scare them all away! I dont think anybody wants to play with him. Deffinitely not another superstar, because he's shown that he cant/doesnt want to share the spotlight. I dont think he can even handle playing with a decent #2 (In the "Scottie Pippen" position, if you wheel) because he cant share the ball!

What a mess.

Lakers at Blazers, April 20. Hmmmmmm.

If Kobe really WAS the next coming of MJ, I'd figure him for, say, 64 points. For Kobe, I figure 42 on 14-37 shooting, and a missed three-pointer at the buzzer.

Given how bad this season went, Laker's management will probably give Kobe one - maybe two - more seasons before doing something drastic. The fans are only going to take so much - and they're already starting to show their frustration.

It'll be interesting to see if Kupchak survives the offseason.

Interesting how a thread about how Darrius "they love me back in East St Louis" Miles makes absurd statements quickly turns into a conversations about how Kobe is a dickhead.

Or that's exactly what Miles was talking about, too.
