Kobe in the US took a hit because of the rape allegations, anyone who is compared to MJ is subject to immense scrutiny, and probably most of all because he is a Lakers, he warrants immense hate lol.

 

But internationally speaking Kobe is a household name, in particular Europe, obviously China, and even South America (Messi commercial and some car line come to mind)

I wasn't serious.

But none off the top of my head. Most statues around the league today featured older players who didn't have tattoos.

But the piece on Kobe's arm shouldn't be hard to incorporate the same way they did the lettering of the uniform on his chest. Would look 10x better.

You just wait.  I heard that Bird Man and JR Smith be getting their own statue pretty soon.


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.
