Kobe Bryant is an interesting and controversial fellow.
I've followed his and Shaq's story and basketball for some
time now. I wrote a Kobe
Bryant Biography about him elsewhere, but this page
is more focused on finding the best Kobe Bryant pic.
There are several different Kobe Bryants to keep in mind when
you're looking for a Kobe Bryant pic. No, I don't mean twins or
clones or multiple personality disorder- I mean the basketball
warrior Kobe, the cool rich NBA dude Kobe, the husband
Kobe, and the charismatic nice guy Kobe. Of course, there
is a Kobe Bryant pic for each one of these...
Let's see if we can do justice to each of those aspects of Kobe.
In the background of this page is a dramatic Kobe Bryant pic.
It's Kobe dunking, yelling, all that. That's when he gets
really passionate- he makes one of those incredible dunks or circus
shots and comes away with the fist.
Of course, there are variations on that- I've seen him do a great
dunk, but land on his butt, and, perhaps secretly embarrassed,
he just runs back down the court without a celebration.
He gets the circus shot to fall and the foul, and comes away in
the Kobe Bryant pic with a calm victory fist. Maybe he's
reserving himself there for the foul shot. Other times, perhaps
at the more crucial moments in the game, especially during the
playoffs, when he can make the difficult or dramatic move, you
see the full warrior yell.
Now, when you see a Kobe Bryant pic of him dunking, it's clear
that whatever he's doing doesn't require him to be aerodynamic,
because he's always got the mouth open... ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
A few more, and we'll have been through every kind
of Kobe Bryant pic you can think of. Now, out of respect, and
putting myself in Kobe's shoes, I'm not going to show the typical
painful picture of him and his wife, Vanessa, at the press conference
where he talked about his Colorado legal case. Instead, let's
look at husband and wife at their best.
And I'll leave you with just one more Kobe Bryant
pic- the superstar, and the rising star, LeBron James- two phenomenal
natural talents who likely will be dazzling the league together
until 2010 or so...
