We here at Hooray For Anything would like to congratulate Kobe Bryant for finally taking matters into his own hands and go out and get some street cred. After all, nothing says street cred in this topsy turvy, hip-hop world like a rap sheet. It is a thug's life, you know.
And who couldn't blame Kobe? There he was- model citizen, articulate, winner of three championship rings- and some punk-ass 18 year-old kid whose never played in an NBA game got a shoe deal twice the size of Kobe's. In basketball, it is, after all, all about the shoe deal. Oh yeah, and if I were LeBron, I'd retire 'cause it ain't gonna get any better than it is now.
Yeah, yeah, we know Kobe's innocent 'til proven guilty and we detest the "rush to judgement" that accompanies any big crime, especially those involving celebrities. But, we do have to if you add it all up- way too much accompolished at too early of an age, way hugely massive ego, and way too cheoraphed a persona- that we always had him pegged for some sort of massive freak-out.
