Well said, thats exactly how I feel about the whole situation, you hit it on the nail.
I think at this point I just feel really empty inside as a fan of Kobe Bryant, because I used to think he was an athlete with a never-die personality, that he yearned a challenge, that he would never turn his back on something that he started without finishing it, yet now hes pulled a 180 and exploited himself for being exactly what the media has portrayed him as his whole career, How can he just give in like that, possible rewrite his legacy for the worse as the guy who took the easy way out, and more then anything how can he turn his back on Los Angeles? As you pointed out FO messed up and he has every right to be angry, but I never would have expected him to go to these length and resort to these antics to get what he wants. Thats my 2 cents in your response/agreement to your blog. Good job man, that was a nice read
