    Not saying Kobe isn't a douchebag, but you cannot say he is a rapist.
    Just because he was never convicted of rape doesn't mean he didn't rape that girl.

    I know an awful lot about the case, had some professional involvement in it and have a close friend who worked on the case, and based on all I know I have come to the conclusion that he raped her. Heck, if you want to believe exactly every public thing, by his own admission she did not consent. Or you can believe only the things that support that she was a gold digger looking for a payday. Whatever suits you.

    I, however, am thoroughly convinced that while she may have willingly gone to his room, she did not consent to sex and that he didn't give a shit if she consented or not. So I'll continue to call him a fucking rapist for the rest of my life, regardless of what you believe.

    ETA: "If she really felt she was raped she would not have settled a civil suit out of court and dropped her criminal case". Really, Tipp? Do you know anything about rape and rape victims at all? I'm just incredulous that someone seemingly as smart as you could really believe that as a general statement.

    This just in, OJ was acquitted of murder, that means he didn't do it !!!

    Bill Clinton didn't have penile penetration with "that woman" therefore he didn't have sex.

    Me being such a VIP and all, I'm having dinner with the Vail Chief of Police or Sheriff (or something like that?) tonight (friend of a friend). I will ask what he thinks since it happened nearby, right? He probably won't say shit, but it will be an interesting dinner topic... maybe. That and I will see what he thinks of Lebron James...

    Whether Kobe was deserving of being the #1 pick is largely irrelevant to whether or not his situation is analogous; I only brought that up incidentally. Lebron did not grow up in Cleveland, he grew up in Akron. Kobe may not have been as big a deal coming out of high school as Lebron was, but he was a big deal. In short, I think you're wrong that there is nothing analogous.

    what are you saying? that the 76ers should have drafted him with the #1 pick even though he wasn't deserving of it? That growing up in Italy and playing high school ball in a wealthy suburb of Philadelphia is somehow analogous to growing up 40 miles outside of Cleveland? Lebron was the obvious #1 pick and Cleveland had the #1 pick. What about that is analogous to Kobe's situation at all?

    You can't say he didn't rape that girl either. Maybe he did, but she is such a basketcase that there was no way they could convince a jury.

    Nutjobs can get raped. I dont know, I was flyfishing at the time, hadnt had a single strike or rise all day. No trout were rising, I looked up to the sky and said "God, if Kobe raped that girl let me catch a fish." First rise of the day, and landed that rainbow. Did Kobe rape that girl? I dont know. Is he innocent? Dont know.

    Rapist or not, what I do know is that the lovefest charade between Kobe and his wife makes me want to gag. The past two years, she and the kids had a prominent place on the podium when the championship trophy was issued. I didn't notice family members for the other players up there, and if they were up there they definitely weren't up front. His family is also the only one standing at the entrance to the tunnel when he leaves the court too. Funny that there's always a camera there also.

    During the 2008 Finals, Kobe was staying at the Liberty Hotel where our smoking hot babysitter bartends. She was "assigned" to him and his posse where they ran up a $1500 tab after their first loss. She said he hit on her... hard. Then the next post game you see the "family tunnel performance" and I had to go outside to barf. He is as bad as anyone says.

    I was stoked watching ESPN today when they were talking about the hard luck of being a Cleveland sports fan. seeing the highlights of the Broncos demoralize the Browns with The Drive and the Fumble never gets old.

    Oh and let me tell all of you a little story. I played with a guy in HS in Denver who then went to CSU. He signed with the Broncos right out of college and played for four years. THEN HE WENT TO THE FUCKING RAIDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! While we are still friends, I'll never forgive him, nor talk to him until he leaves oakland.

    ????? I said I mentioned that incidentally. I don't think it matters whether either of them should have been picked #1, but, instead, whether they "were a big deal" (being drafted #1 is some evidence of that, which is why I said it's largely irrelevant). You think Kobe's entry into the draft wasn't a big deal? Really? I remember things differently. So does wikipedia: [ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kobe_Bryant[/ame]. Also, I think high schoolers jumping to the NBA were viewed with more circumspection at that time (see the last paragraph of this article, for instance - http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/...-Mets-Fan.html), which may have muted the attention given Kobe relative to that given Lebron. In any event, they were both a big deal at the time they came into the NBA and they've both proven to be a very big deal subsequently.

    Quote Originally Posted by Danno View Post

    I think that's a mischaracterization. Kobe was born in Philadelphia in 1978. His family moved to Italy in 1984 and stayed until 1991, when they moved to Lower Merion. He graduated high school in 1996. http://www.famouspeoplebiographyguid...be-Bryant.html. I think that's a reasonably strong tie to Philadelphia.

    Lebron grew up in Akron. Is there a strong tie between Akron and Cleveland? (I don't really know.) Lebron apparently rooted for the Bulls, not the Cavaliers, suggesting that at least that Akronite didn't feel such a strong tie to Cleveland or their basketball team. But I will say that it's very believable to me that Cavaliers fans in that area claim him as one of their own - I have Cal Ripken from my own experience as a similar example.

    If you forced me to say, I'd agree that, based on the little I know, Lebron seems to have a stronger tie to Cleveland than Kobe did to Philadelphia. But I doubt that, at least earlier in his career, Philadelphia had no proprietary feeling toward Kobe. Here's a hint to the contrary, for instance (first link that came up in my Google search): http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/...-Mets-Fan.html.

    The fact that Lebron ended up with the Cavaliers initially was a nice bit of luck for Cleveland fans. I can understand that it strengthens whatever sense Cavaliers fans in that area had that he is one of their own and "belongs" to them. But I'd guess most superstar team athletes grew up with some tie to a particular region that is associated with a particular professional team, and I don't think that whatever tie Lebron is supposed to have to the Cavaliers for that reason is particularly unique. I think that's my point, more so than the particular analogy to Kobe. As I (and The AD, others?) said above, I think Cleveland was pretty fortunate to get him for the 7 years he was there.

    Edit to add ...

    Yes, I am putting way too much effort into this, which makes me a retard, because my dominant point of view is that this whole thing is ridiculous and another example of the types of things that have been turning me off pro sports in recent years. You might not guess it by the fact that I've posted several times in this thread (and provided four - four!?!?! - links to supporting information for my compelling arguments above), but mainly what I think about all this is that, yeah, I'm moderately interested in where Lebron ends up, as a sports fan, but ohmigod who really cares all that much, anywhere near enough to warrant the soap opera that's occurred.

    Lebron is a douchebag, period.

    Lebron is a fucking douchebag, never will I take that tag off him--good luck Heat, get prepared to be disappointed. I should count how many times I have now said that Mr. James is a douchebag, but someone will sooner or later...me thoughts have settled now since I started my rant, and I really feel "AMF, Mr. James Douchebag. AMF"
