The guy who wore No. 8 on a poster on James’ wall, whose hairstyle James once tried to emulate and work ethic James blew up into some mythical force of personal fear-based motivation, was and always will be a god to James. That’s why Bryant not pursuing a spot on the U.S. Olympic basketball team this summer is a very real reason James might also not join the team, according to NBA sources.
Bill MacDonald is in his fifth season as the Lakers television play-by-play announcer on Time Warner Cable SportsNet, though he’s covered Kobe since the very beginning. Calling Kobe’s historic 81-point game will always top the list, but so will that night he raced Bryant home on the 405 freeway. “​Since Kobe and I live near each other, he would say to me, after the games ‘Wanna race home?’ But, we never left at the same time, until this one day. I’m driving down the 405 and I see Kobe’s car in front of me. It was stopped and I happened to blow right past him with my fucking hand and my middle finger out the window like ‘Fuck you!’ and I’m screaming at him and what does he do? We proceed to play cat and mouse for the next 25 minutes all the way down the San Diego freeways, breaking all kind of rules.
