God, sometimes it just feels so good to hate Kobe Bryant. When I woke up this morning and saw this picture, I thought Christmas had come again...

Kobe bloody
Awh...did little Kobe get a boo boo?

Apparently, Mike Miller unintentionally whacked Kobe in the head during the Grizzlies' 100-99 overtime victory over the Lakers. Of course, Kobe got all tough guy and later drew a flagrant foul for elbowing Miller in the throat as Mike drove to the hoop. Said Kobe: "Any player that was going to come down the lane at that point in time, I was going to let him know that he just can't walk through there." Yeah, it's funny...I don't remember Kobe committing a flagrant foul on Shaq a few days ago when he was walking into the lane and dunking all over Chris Mihm. Probably because he knows he'd have ended up in a bucket somewhere labeled "What's Left of Kobe Bryant."

Anyway, Kobe continues to jack up the ball at an unprecedented rate. He's like that drunk guy at the bar who thinks a girl will go home with him if he just keeps buying her drink after drink. He was 13-37 last night, with 19 [!!] free throw attempts, meaning he shot the ball almost 50 times. Imagine if he hadn't had to leave the game to get stitched up. He might've taken 60.

Funtastic Extra: I just had to include this incredibly gay picture of Kobe wearing tights and leaping through the air. Does this picture make any sense to anybody?! Even the ref has a "WTF?!!" look on his face.

Kobe flying
"I soar on the wings of my dreams."
