Kobe Bryant turned himself into police and posted a $25,000 bond on a felony count of sexual assault in Colorado today. Allegedly, Kobe sexually assaulted a young woman in a hotel room near Vail, Colorado a week ago. Damn, that’s one hell of an allegation!

Kobe is the last person I would expect to see in this type of scandal. Maybe I am naive and the public persona is all a carefully crafted illusion. Has he pulled the wool over on all of us? What the hell was he doing with a woman who wasn’t his wife in a hotel room!? Well, maybe I have an idea, but surely not Kobe! He’s a new father, happily married, a decent guy, right!? I am so confused.

I don’t know if this whole thing is true, and it’s probably too early to tell. However, when I start hearing words like “physical evidence” it seems this may not be a simple case of “she said, he said.” Bottom line, for the sake of Kobe, the Lakers, and the sport of basketball, I sure hope this brouhaha is all a really big misunderstanding.


  1. I am also having a real hard time believing this story…I think that I am equally scared that he actually cheated on his wife. The real question is did any of us know that he needed knee surgery? Something in this whole story does not add up…

  3. Sad to say, but I think homeboy is a sex pervert. Poor Vanessa and Natalia. They don’t need that… And don’t get me wrong, I really loved Kobe, but he’s not so innocent.
