    It depends on both the crime & victim. Many athletes get into trouble with the law, but are eventually forgiven, because the crime was not viewed to be severe. Kobe however was accused of raping a white woman, which in the eyes of white America is the most serious crime that a Black man could do. If this occurred just 40 years ago Kobe would have been lynched before he had time to talk to a lawyer. Although this woman eventually dropped the criminal case, in the eyes of many...his money got him off. Kobe will always be viewed in the eyes of many as a rich criminal who escaped "justice" because he was rich (like OJ)! The upcoming civil suit...which will reveal even more details...will further his guilt in many people's eyes. Kobe still has many years of basketball ahead of him...but his days of being on McDonald's bags is over!

    This guy is funny to me. Now he is all in the press with his wifey again...she said Karl Malone made a pass at her. The dialogue sounded pretty dumb and so did Kobe's remarks to the press.

    I guess I just don't like this guy.

    How long will his age be an excuse for him? He's not the only young person out there making millions and others seem to handle things better than he does. How do you know that college would have helped him mature...his problem is his arrogance, not immaturity.

    This is the truth. Kobe's only defense is the fact that he's still "young". Kevin Garnett was young when he came into the league and Kobe has had more drama in the last year than he's had in his whole career. The Lakers management didn't think he was too young to take total control of the Lakers...so why does he get a pass from the fans for his stupid behavior. He's just insecure because he cheated, and now he thinks she's going to bang Karl Malone. They say the one's that cheat are the same ones that accuse you of it...that's Kobe. He's a disgrace to basketball. He has all the talent in the world but no character to go along with it.

    Now Kobe's crying saying that he wants to apologize for throwing Shaq under the bus in an effort to save his own skin. What a baby. Someone please help this "man" find his missing balls.
