Kobe Bryant is an insecure child

Despite all his fame and championships, Kobe Bryant is still an insecure, attention-seeking child.

Check out this post (and video highlights) in Crossover Chronicles:

Without the normal summer league ball and player movement to quench our NBA thirst this summer, a lot of us have turned to the summer pro-am circuit for our fix.  Kevin Durant has torn up Rucker Park, NYC Pro City, and the Drew League (among many others).  LeBron James is another big name who showed up for a Drew League game.  So when Kobe appeared at the Drew, it just seemed like another NBA star dropping by to get some run. 

Except he didn't.  Instead of dropping by for a game like everyone else, Kobe's reps had to set up a special game for him. 

Dino Smiley: […] we talked about it, and I said, "You know what? We haven't set up an All-Star game. Why don't we do an All-Star game on a Sunday night?" He was gonna be leaving out early Monday morning and coming back. Couldn't do it. So finally, Sunday evening, I get a call. "Kobe wants to play the game, but wants to play at two o'clock on a Tuesday." I'm like, "Two o'clock on a Tuesday? We don't play Drew League games during the week."

It was ironic, because the team [playing against Goodman] was going to have practice that day at 6 pm. So I tell him, "The guys are coming down. Let me see if I can get them to come down early. I don't want to put it on Twitter and I don't want to put it out to the media or anything like that, and the guy doesn't show up. You guys gotta give me a 110 percent that he's coming."

And they were like, "No, he's definitely coming. He definitely wants to play. And he only wants to play in the Drew league in that gym. He doesn't want to play anywhere else." And I know it's because of LeBron [James] and [Kevin] Durant. They played and got a buzz. (Laughs) We were like, "Okay, let's try to make it happen."


My 2-year old son acts in a similar manner when he wants my attention. He'll climb on me, grab my face to ensure eye contact and say "look at me!"

Kobe Bryant is Mr. Look-At-Me.

  • I’m a female Laker fan but have plenty of respect for the Celtic organization but I think it’s hilarious how Kobe and the Lakers seem to be such an obsession with this blog. Go on any Laker blog and you won’t find anything even remotely Celtic-related, much less anything talking about the team or the players in a negative way. Are you that obsessed with Kobe and the Lakers that you post meaningless articles about them every single chance you get? Even Laker fans know that Kobe’s like that. Who cares? Things must be REALLY boring over there in Boston.

  • Funny, and yet Faker fans seem to find their way over to a Celtics fan blog to referee what topics are acceptable. Things must be pretty slow in LA.

  • Aww did I offend you? I’m sorry. But just so happens that I actually do like reading fan blogs and this one has some good content. So what’s your point exactly?
    “Faker” fans. Real original Ben Affleck.

  • Kobe’s a douche. We can never have enough Kobe’s a douche posts. Thanks Chuck.

  • I am shocked only one found their way over this time. They must have already left the Lakers high and dry. They jumped off the bandwagon faster than normal this time.
