Kobe Bryant the man we all know as the L.A. Lakers King.

I disliked Kobe since his High School days when he was at Lower Merion High School. During that time my city (Chester) was like the Lakers in Basketball but in 95 Kobe killed my city that year and won a State Championship for Lower Marion. Ever since that day I sat in the stands peed off. Angry how he would slam dunk on my team. When he became a Laker that burned my anger into it became a blue flame. I could remember my friend and I comparing who was better. Iverson or Kobe!


Well I know now that Kobe turned out to be a better player and a Champion. In-fact yesterday he became the all time Lakers scorer. Congrats Kobe I've learned to respect you a little more now.

Wow, Mr. Opinion, did you see Kobe play when he was still in high school? I've followed athletes who were still in high school [ie Carmelo Anthony & Lebron James] because they were in magazines like SLAM or in the newspaper [Tyson Chandler currently with Charlotte played here in a LA high school].

Too bad the Lakers lost to Memphis last night but Kobe scored 44 points and now is the all-time highest scorer in Laker history [beating out Jerry West]

Yes I did and he was a BEAST in high school. I was also lucky to see Jameer Nelson ( Chester High - St. Joe's - Orlando Magic) and Tyreke Evans ( American Christian - Sacramento Kings).
