Default Re: Kobe wants Pippen in LA!

It doesn't look like a good weekend for Mr. Bryant
First he was owned by Pippen and now this
I went to Niketown in Caesar's Palace yesterday to see the unveiling of a new Kobe Bryant shoe. It was loud in there (and the MC was Scoop Jackson, who is incredibly hoarse with some kind of cold--poor guy is barely audible) but I think I heard correctly that Kobe's shoe actually has some Latin on it. It apparently says "carpe diem" somewhere. Must be a first of some kind. To my inexpert eye the shoe looks like this: it's black. With some yellow. The assembled fans seemed to love it. But they also seemed to love Shaquille O'Neal and the Miami Heat. There was a lot of mocking when Kobe said he wanted to get back to the championship. People were yelling he couldn't do it without Shaq. Kobe looked at the noisiest section and said "no, no, no, no, no, no, no." (I counted--there were seven.) Wonder if he gets that everywhere he goes
