Ok guys, first and foremost, that isn't a jacket. It's a traditional clothing worn during Qing Dynasty.

Also, dun bother using the translator. Kobe's blog has the original english text if you guys are pinpointed to the correct webpage. Let me point it out to you guys here:
My own translation of title: Hi China Basketball fans! I've started blogging!
Hey everyone in China, this is Kobe! I am really excited to have my own Chinese blog with SINA. I feel this blog really gives me the chance to connect directly with all of you -- my Chinese fans. It's kinda like staying close to you while I can not be in China right now in person because of the NBA Season. Through my blog, I look forward to getting to know all of you better, and for you to learn more about me.
At times my blog will be serious and other times funny. It will cover a variety of topics from life, to basketball, to pop culture. All in all its going to be real cool. Thanks for taking the time to read my stuff, and I hope to keep connecting with all of you on a regular basis!
It's my first blog.I check out blogs that are all over the "map". From blogs about movies, to music, to fashion -- I try to stay pretty connected to what is going on in the World. I like to read blogs or web-articles on other successful and competitive people. It helps me to learn what works and doesn't, and better form my approach to life. I really don't have one particular favorite, but I do spend a fair amount of time surfing the Web.
I have visited china in summer in last three years,shall I go to china this summer? Right now, I don't have my summer travel schedule totally set. I am really focusing on trying to win an NBA Championship with the Lakers in June. After that, I will sit down with my endorsement partners like NIKE, SINA, etc and determine what my summer schedule will be for July, August and September. I would be really excited if I get to go to China again this summer! It really is one of my favorite places in the world!
My own translation of title: When can I have a repeat 81pt performance?
Many chinese fans wanna know:is it possible that kobe will update his blog by himself?My blog goes directly from my BlackBerry to my SINA website. My team at SINA simply translates it from English into Chinese and then posts it on my site. Other than that there is no middle person, or anything like that. These are my real, genuine thoughts coming right from my fingertips to you by email.
I also am constantly checking out my SINA website to see what you guys, my fans, have to stay. Like I said one of my main goals is staying directly connected to my Chinese fans. Because I really love how you guys treat me and my family when we are over there. For example, when we were in Beijing for the Olympics it was my birthday. My Chinese fans lined up for me with posters and banners, like thousands of you, and sang Happy Birthday in English to me and my family. That was such an incredible touching and generous moment for me. A real honor. I really can't tell you enough how inspired I am by my fans in your beautiful country.
Many fans want I to give Sun Yue some suggestion.Sun Yue is a great young player with loads of talent. I was able to have a Peking Duck dinner with him in Beijing right before he was drafted into the NBA. We talked a lot about the hard work and preparation he would need to put in to make it in the NBA. He seems very focused and disciplined so I think his future is very bright.
There is a funny question that I get asked all the time. Those moments in sports (like scoring 81 points) are kind of magical, and hard to predict when they will happen. To be honest, every game I play in, I just really try to read the flow and pace of the game. I don't ever set out to accomplish something in particular just for the sake of doing it. On that night when we were playing against The Toronto Raptors, I could just really tell that my teammates needed my to be offensively aggressive and stay in attack mode. The shots just kept coming to me in the flow of the offense, and I kept making them. I would have never predicted I would end up with that many points, but it just kind of happened. It would be really fun if it happened again, but will just have to wait and see!
I can help to distribute these to TLN if you guys want me to.
