Kobe + Laker bashing...If only Bryant's overriding ego had not driven Shaquille O'Neal from Los Angeles and left the once-mighty Lakers in roiling, embarrassed mediocrity.
On behalf of South Florida, please consider this a thank-you note, Kobe. We would throw in a bottle of Cristal or Dom Perignon, but we're on a sportswriter salary here. Besides, money you have in ample supply. If only common sense were for sale.
You blew it, Kobe. Your pride got ugly, got in the way of everything and made them blow up a championship club. Does the guy in your mirror own up to that yet?
