Look, we all hate Kobe here. He shoots us (poorly, on the whole) out of the playoffs, he does that stupid thing with his jaw, he's passive aggressive to his teammates... He's a Laker for chrissakes. Hating Kobe is, at the moment, part & parcel with being a fan of the Nuggets.
But I just wanted to give thanks where they're due: Thanks, Kobe, for shutting down Sager during the All Star game. It's nice to know that, even after the "stupid" comments, you are among those many who can count ourselves as tired of this conversation. This is a tiny, tiny bit of good will coming your way from the Rocky Mountains, so soak it up, because tomorrow we go back to the way it was before, where I wouldn't cross the street to piss on your flaming corpse.
