    "The truth is Kobe is one of the most successful hated athletes there is. He might not be histories best but he certainly will be remember as one of histories greatest!"

    Kobe is hated not because he is successful, but because he is a dick. He has consistently shown himself to be a vindictive ass and a ball-hogging hot dog. He is not even close to the greatest player EVER, Michael Jordan, and for all his grandstanding and wishing he could even play in the same stratosphere as MJ, he will be remembered not as one of history's greatest for his basketball skills, but for his vulgar and tasteless actions he keeps repeating. He's a jag. Period.

    Calling someone gay is $100,000. But rap is ok. Only in the u.s.a!

    I really can't jump, can you? OFFTOPIC: $4 gas IS here, Don't buy gas on Fridays. Give 'em a kick in the n-ts, for tracking your spending habits, then stabbing America in the back with ANY price gouging or increase.

    @Shay;the, she made the whole thing up from scratch. She figured it all out from the get-go. She knew in advance the story that she sould have to concoct in order to fool Kobe's attroeney(s) and our judicicial system. In short...she is smart, while you are right, and the rest of US are dumb, ignorant.

    Under "Getto."
    Now, that's what I call a Getto.

    @Philip. Smart enough to recognize an opportunity. The opposite of your theory...Kobe collected detailed photos of the hottest hotel staff in the area. Ultimately, chose her, coordinated his stay with her work schedule and had his assistant arrange a "meeting". Makes sense.
