The joke’s on us, people.
Scott Guldin (rightfully) calls us out for failing to get this thread up and running prior to last night’s horrific Game One.
Kobe after the game: “I just want it so bad, that’s all. I just want it really bad.”
Awww. Mamba wants it so bad.
Just like he wanted to beat those rape charges so bad.
Harsh? We don’t think so. Please, David Stern, ABC and NBA Inc., stop trying to force-feed the image of Kobe as a great guy and great teammate down our throats. He’s the best player in the league right now, but let’s leave it at that.
Our thoughts after Game One (which, obviously, we* missed live): Please, mercifully, let this series be over as quickly as possible.
In the words of Tracyanne Campbell, “Lloyd, I’m ready to be heartbroken.”
* = “We” obviously means “Ben.”
