The biggest story in sports news today was Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike Brown’s firing after just a 1-4 start. Now Kobe Bryant has issued a statement, via Facebook, which clearly is a means of saying, “Hey, despite my death stare, it wasn’t my fault son got the axe, I swear.”
“Tough day,” begins Kobe’s message. “I’ve seen coaches as well as friends come and go. No matter how many years I’ve been playing, it’s still hard to deal with. I had a good relationship with Mike and I will continue to have one. I wish him and his family nothing but the best. I spoke with him today and thanked him for all of his hard work and sacrifice.”
Kobe went on to talk of getting ready for tonight’s game against the Golden State Warriors and focusing in the new post-Mike Brown era. All good. And you definitely can’t blame him for Devin Ebanks’ DUI fail.
But the fact that he signs all his messages “Mamba out,” is pure comedy. Good job, good effort on trying to be sincere, Mr. Bryant. Peep the full entry on the next page. Never forget, below.
