Last night, Kobe Bryant, basketball superhero to some, played the last game of his extraordinary career leading the Lakers to a narrow 101 to 96 victory against the Utah Jazz, dropping an impressive total of 60 points himself.
He’s an impressive player and many will miss him, no doubt, but Kobe has proven time and time again that he’s also an impressive douche bag.
Twitter user K. Lee, at one point one of Kobe’s biggest fans, told a short story from 2001 of his first (and last) encounter with basketball idol that decimated his childhood innocence and made him hate the Lakers forever.
@kobebryant I’m gone tell you the story of why I despise you so much……. And you better read this or else!
