The contradictions from both sides is hilarious. So, Kobe is given accolades for his name recognition. Yet, he us hated by the media. Which one is it? Can't have boff.
The truth is, really, neither, or both. Haha.
Kobe isn't, actually, hated by the media at all.
The reason it might appear that way, on a Lakers fan forum, is that the media doesn't necessarily love or even embrace him the way WE do.
So while Kobe might not get the can't-do-no-wrong treatment from the media, he gets more love than 99% of the players in the league save probably Lebron James.
I too get annoyed with the whole victim mentality of woe is me, the world hates me. Ever since Dwayne Wade did that when he talked about how everyone should be happy now because they were losing, I lost total respect for him.
(WTS, go Kobe, first team all NBA!)
