Yeah, I’ll admit: I’m bitter.
My Utah Jazz lost to the Los Angeles Lakers in five games and Kobe Bryant gave me another reason to despise him more than I already do. Yeah, yeah, yeah, there will never be another Michael Jordan, blah, blah, blah. I get that. But Bryant (and Lebron James now, too) have this ability to literally will their teams to a victory. That’s part of the reason I want to punch Bryant in the soft parts. The other reason is he seems by all accounts an arrogant douche.
Have you heard of ESPN’s Kobe documentary premiering on May 17th? Yeah, me neither, but apparently Spike Lee did a “day in the life of Kobe” for the all-sports network. It’s called “Kobe Doin’ Work.” How’s that for the most lame and underwhelming title of the year? At any rate, the documentary by Lee is getting bad press as of late and it seems The New York Post has more juicy details that further cement Bryant’s reputation as a controlling, whiny prima donna.
Check out the New York Post article by following this link, and read the Lost Angeles Times not-so-favorable review of “Kobe Doin’ Work” here. If you’re half interested in checking out Spike Lee’s efforts on May 17th, you can view the trailer at Apple.com.
