Kobe riding Chopper Style

I forgot you can't use your hands in soccer, my bad.

I forgot you can't use your hands in soccer, my bad.

On an afternoon when Brazil’s Marta, the top women’s soccer player on the planet, was being introduced by the Los Angeles Sol in Carson, Kobe Bryant flew in by helicopter after Lakers practice and walked off with the show. By the time he left the Home Depot Center, he had the Sol players giggling like star-struck teenagers, all eager to be photographed alongside him. Naturally, Bryant obliged. He also did a little goalkeeping, a little ball-juggling, banged a shot in off the left post and generally enjoyed himself. Sure, Women’s Professional Soccer, the league that launches on March 29, was using the Lakers star to attract television coverage, but Bryant would have been there regardless. As much as he admires Lionel Messi and FC Barcelona, and as close a friend as he is of David Beckham, the NBA’s most genuine soccer lover places Marta right up there on the same pedestal. “I’m a fan, really,” Bryant said. “I don’t feel like Kobe the basketball player at all. I’m just as excited as anybody here. “Watching her play, the way that she plays with such passion, such energy, such a love for the game, and so much creativity, I found myself being glued to the TV set. — LA Times

Kobe, maybe its time you retired from Basketball, put on the shin pads and played soccer for a living. You are always bragging about how you grew up in Italy playing soccer. Whatever you do, please dont ever rap again. Thanks -TO
