I didn't read the first post and was wondering "Rip or Kobe what?"
who would i rather date my sister...probably Rip
as far as who I want with the ball in their hands with the game tied and 5 seconds to go?.....Kobe
People can't seriously believe that kobe is having a good season at all. His stats may have gone up, but he's putting himself in a whole 'nother level of selfish play... and it's the kind that does not help your teammates at all.
nobody in their right mind can believe that kobe "needs" to shoot 35+ a game for the lakers to succeed.
