Jealous Sportswriters

Postby cball7 on Fri Jul 19, 2013 4:24 pm

Jealous sportswriters victimize Kobe’s passion and dedication to his cart by refusing to see him as the play he was at nineteen years old.

The most dedicated athlete in the game, Kobe doesn’t get his credit he deserves in the media as a complete player. He was facilitating, making defensive plays, and taking games over in the finals when Shaq was sitting on the bench. They rather keep recycling the bad teammate story. They desperately tried use Dwight Howard leaving town to turn five-time champion Kobe back into nineteen-year-old novice Kobe. It’s the only story they choose to see plus it satisfies the sportswriter’s natural jealousy and create friendships with unnamed sources on the Lakers team.

Sure, immature Kobe with his poor people skill and rush to succeed gave the media this story write, but young Kobe is just one chapter in his saga. They skip the part of the story where he won championships back to back with a bum knee and broken bones in his hands to remind us of the mistake he made as a teenager. Instead of applauding his prolific scoring while notching a record number of appearances they choose to complain that he doesn’t pass to Smush Parker or Luke Walton enough, even though Kobe was able to trick Pat Riley into give Smush a five million dollar contract. Or, if you want to go off the court what about his end homelessness movement

They lack the love of the game it takes to write that story instead, they choose to stick to bad teammate Kobe. Bad teammate Kobe sells copy creating instant interest lending drama and entertainment to their article that for the basketball and the non-basketball fan can enjoy.

Selfish Kobe is an easy story to write and you don’t have to be a sport fan to understand it. While it requires a deep knowledge of the game and a writer who can write to understand what it means for a twenty one year old to master the jump shot, post moves, and understanding of his teammates game it take to win a championship not to mention. Instead, we know Kobe by what jealous teammates say behind his back and other cheap rumors sportswriters attach to his name.

As a writer, it takes talent and desire to convey the passion, skill, and drive it demands to score eight-one points in a game when you are burden with a starting point guard who can’t shoot, pass, or dribble and a starting center a center who can’t catch a pass or hit a free throw. They ignore the story he gave them about the kid who was determined to succeed when all of basketball and half his teammates want to see him fail.

Bottom line is that Kobe makes people look bad. He has maximized his potential through an insane commitment to his profession. Most people, no matter what their profession, do not do what Kobe does to be the best. He alienated people by making them look weak and feeble in comparison. So he is despised because he is willing to do what they are not. I think that someday people will look back on Kobe and appreciate him more than he is today.

Good post. I agree with your sentiment cball7.
The goal is to avoid letting all of that cloud your own judgement and appreciation of true basketball talent and greatness.

Kobe, like Barry Bonds, treated the media the way they deserved. Like scum. And when you do that, you have this kind of stuff happen.

Wow that's a wee bit harsh and way over the top. Kobe's always had an edge. But he's a smart guy and has always been a pretty straight shooter and interview. There are few players if any that can string their thoughts and answers together like Kobe Bryant. He's always been available for the most part. Treated them like scum?? No not hardly.

Where do many politicians go after they leave office?


The media is living off of sensationalism and if it doesn't exist they will create it..... Pretty scummy if you ask me..... Politicians are living off of "crisis".....if they don't have one to react to they fabricate one. Now, one is unable to exist anymore in a relevant way without the other..... So I'd say they are a lot closer than you might think.
