Kobe Bryant

I'm No Rodman

I'd Never Go to N. Korea

Guess Kim Jong Un just isn't a Lakers fan ... 'cause Kobe Bryant claims he was NEVER approached by the North Korean dictator to come visit ... a la Dennis Rodman.

Bryant appeared on Jimmy Kimmel last night and talked about the missile crisis ... saying, "You know it’s a crazy world ... I mean, our President is a Chicago Bulls fan. Dennis obviously has great history with that and North Korea."

He added, "I mean, I think we are all just as shocked as everybody is here about that ... but it’s a weird world."

When asked if KJU ever reached out to him, Kobe replied, "No, I haven't heard anything yet."

And then came the zinger ... when Jimmy asked if Kobe would consider heading over to N. Korea if called upon.

Kobe: "Yeah, I would probably pass, I’d probably pass."
Jimmy: "Oh, for once you are passing!?"

HA!

I think Rodman is trying to stay relevant, but I can't help but feel like it's going to backfire. Terribly. In his interview with George Stephanopoulos he avoided the subject of NK's countless human rights violations, only talking about how KJU is his friend. It's bizarre.

Audacity    

Kobe is pointing fingers of judgement at someone else's actions? He continues to be bold beyond decency.

You're still far from a role model for proper behavior, Kobe. Kimmel is hilarious.

Rapist. How long will it be before this guy is back to screwwing anything in a skirt? There will be another big show of "I'm filing for divorce" on the part of his wife, he will buy her flowers, gaudy jewerly, give her title to houses, promise to never do it agian and then he will be back to his old tricks. That girl must REALLY love material craap to put up with a rapist and a serial cheater. Most women would have told Kobe to shove that purple ring right up his azz and then moved on.
