Several years ago Kobe Bryant was accused of rape by a maid who worked at a hotel he was staying at. This was the beginning of a down fall for Kobe who many considered to have a squeaky clean image. Where not going to go into all of this, but many of his fans turned there back on him. However millions stood behind him and still supported there favorite player and now we are vindicated.

What a year it has been for Kobe it did not start on a good note. Kobe was upset at the Lakers front office and rightfully so over the way they where mishandling the team since the departure of Shaq. This caused those who hate or just dislike him to call him selfish and wrong to call out the front office. It turned out his complaining lead to some big moves.

All Laker fans know what these big moves where trading for Ariza and Mitch hanging on to Bynum to start. Mitch turned out he was right over keeping Bynum as he now looks to a big piece to our puzzle in the future. Then when Bynum went down and the season was on the ropes he pulled of the Gasol trade. This propelled the Lakers on to the NBA Finals eventually and also Kobe Bryant to his best year ever. Kobe Bryant got his first MVP finally and proved to many that he could be a team player.

Then comes the Olympics you can call it the cherry on the top. Now firsts things first I don't want to hear ever again that Kobe Bryant is all about himself or not a team player. Kobe Bryant showed not only on the court, but off the court. Let's start with the off the court leadership and team player activities.

First of all Kobe Bryant and many of the other US Basketball players showed there patriotism and support to there fellow American athletes by showing up at other events during there free time. Kobe and LeBron where all over the place at many of Micheal Phelps swims and beach volleyball as well. Kobe Bryant showed that he isn't a kid anymore who sits in his hotel room by himself like many said he did at a younger age.

When Kobe Bryant's transformation to being back to where he was before all the down fall happened last night. The chips where down and the USA was up against it. Kobe was missing every shot he was taking and Spain was matching the USA blow for blow as they cut the lead down to 2. What happened I saw Kobe Bryant pumping his team mates up and keeping them focused on the task. Then Kobe Bryant went of as he either scored or assisted on 15 straight US points. Highlighted by the huge 4 point play that was so clutch.

Kobe Bryant took this US team on his back in the end and really carried the USA to the gold. Proving that he is certainly one of the best players in the world and certainly the argument can be made that he is the best in the world I would be glad to make it. Putting the cherry on the top of an incredible year as Kobe is now back on top of the world.

For the haters I suspect you will be scrambling to come up with new ways to rip on Kobe. However I must say KoMe should never ever be used again(this goes especially to you Mr. Freeman)!!!!!!!!

Kobe Bryant back on top of the world where he belongs and I'm so proud of him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chew on that humble pie haters!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Must have sucked to have to swallow your pride and root for Kobe to lead the USA to the gold when there backs where against the wall!!!!!!

Kobe Bryant Is Back On Top!!!!!!

Kobe is guilty of cheating on his wife and that is wrong no question about it however his wife has forgiven him so I really don't think you should hold it against him. That being said you are innocent until proven guilty in the court of law so I guess Kobe is innocent. You are also very much held in the court of public opinion and I think the public is finally realizing yea Kobe made a mistake however it may now be a forgivable mistake.

The vindication part is for his fans more those of us who stood by him are finally being rewarded for doing so. We have been vindicated for sticking by his side.

Thanks for the kind words guys!!!!

Thats great DEEDSY!! I love it! It is good to see "TEAM USA" win the gold. So many people thought that it wouldn't happen and blamed it on Kobe and LeBron not bieng team players. I would love to hear the excuses now. Kobe made a huge difference in that last game, and it truly was a team effort that elevated them into the number one slot in the olympics this year. Great job U.S.A.! Great to see them pull together and win it all! I really loved when the whole team gave up the Gold medals and place on coach K. He held them together and should also get credit for his leadership. So lets sit back and hear the anti-Kobe's rant and rave about what he did wrong.

Kobe nailed the chick.  That's for sure.  Settling out of court means nothing.  Paying someone money is not an admission of guilt.  If I slipped and fell at a Kroger or Safeway food store, it's an easy 10 grand when you sue just to shut people up.  I've been sued for much less, and it was thrown out as frivolous.  Had I a lot of money, I probably just would've written a check to make it go away.

All I ever think of is commentator Michael Savage's dirty music using  Kobe voice-over when he was doing the nasty with the maid.  However, most superstars have the superstar garbage go to their "heads," so to speak.  Either way, it appears as if Kobe and his wife have gotten on with life.  Those of us who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, and there isn't anybody in this blogosphere who doesn't have something embarrassing in their lives that has happened to them. 
The best we can do and hope others do for us is to forgive him and assume the very best.  He was a total class act in the Olympics as well as the rest of his team.  Kobe's the leader again.  We have to move on and put him on the pedestal of the NBA's top player once again, and help that young man sign some more endorsements.  LOL.  Seriously, Kobe could do a lot of good with his reputation and his money, so, as fans, even if you're not a Laker's fan, we have to get behind Kobe once again. 
The league is as strong as it ever was.  Nobody will ever forget Michael, Magic or Larry, but Kobe, LeBron and a couple of other notables like Dwight Howard have finally given us something to look forward to.

Only a moron would consider someone to be a good guy because of athletic accomplishments! ADDave, I totally agree with you! I couldn't say it better myself, so I won't!

 

ADDave has a brain, unlike many sports fans!

This is such a ridiculous premise - winning a gold medal, or any sort of championship does not vindicate one from past deeds. Let's say for arguments sake that Kobe did sexually assault Ms. Faber, as she alleged. Athletic accomplishment in no way makes up for any sort of criminal behavior or activity. The fact is that Kobe settled out of court with the young woman, which in my view means he was guilty of something. I don't know what, but innocent people don't settle out of court with alleged victims.

Congratulations to the US basketball on their medal. Just don't try to sell me on some BS that because he helped a team win something he's a good guy. He may be, but whether he is or not has absolutely nothing to do with winning basketball games.

That's right haters!  Way to go deeds!

Kobe is a straight class act, instead of sulking around the Olympics hoping to get it over with, he went to support Michael Phelps, May and Walsh, and the women's team!  He even held up a good image in a stupid interview he did with Cris Collinsworth where that idiot asked the question "Is it "cool" to support Team USA?  Is that being "cool" the reason why you're doing this?"  Kobe made Collinsworth look like a fool, when he was trying to set Kobe up for disaster!

By the way, if you like hot women, that mean's all of you, including you deeds! check out my buddy's blog that we are sharing.  Vote on who you think is hottest!
