He will be remembered, of course, for being one of the game's greats, willing to eat your young, or his own jersey to win.
"It's disgusting, but my father taught me when your mouth gets dry, just suck the sweat out of your own jersey," he says. "There's no bravado to any of it; it's just a disgusting little trick."

Not really news but never knew thats why he did it. So gross.

In my mind, this only proves Kobe's will to win. He will do ANYTHING to be at peak performance. Even the smallest things can nag you in a game and a dry mouth is certainly one of them

Yeah it stops your mouth from getting dry so you dont get that nasty [expletive] Paul Pierce had on his mouth of game 7 of the 2010 finals. I don't know which is nastier lol!!!

I always thought it was for that reason because he always licks his lips right after almost spreading the moisture.
