Would You Pay $50 to Read About Kobe?

Because that’s what he’s charging for “exclusive” access (plus a t-shirt!) to his official website.

    I knew the economy was bad, but not THIS bad.

  • Jackie Moon

    I already did.

  • Jackie Moon

    And the T-shirt is awesome!

    Doc Funk has just become my new favourite commentor.

  • Jackie Moon

    This is not news, the site has had paid sections almost since it first went online.

    No, I wouldn’t, because I just did for free. Stupid Kobe.

  • a_whiteman

    Did anyone see kobe do the big balls dance last night!!!!!

  • WhiteOut

    I would never pay a coon $50 to hear his opinons.

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    Someone needs to be banned immediately!^

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    @Whiteout:I’d never pay your mother $50 for something that she gladly does with multiple partners every night for free!

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Moose

    B. Long’s been waiting for two months since he made that up to whip it out.

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    Not really, Moose. Insulting ingnorance comes pretty natural to me.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Moose

    I noticed, B. I’ve been the victim many a time.

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    I’m pretty sure you’ve never said something as stupid as whiteout…..in your liftime.

  • Jackie Moon

    You’re either with Kobe or you’re with “WhiteOut”.

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    LMAO^ I don’t think it’s that “black and white” Jackie Moon.

    It’s not about races, it about places, faces, where your blood comes from, is where your space is

    Unless we get 24/7 access to secret footage of Kobe Bryant dunking on George Bush, Ben Affleck and Anne Coulter at the same time with the Roots performing live at half court — in Rucker Park. Charging $50 is really taking a piss!

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Can someone please remove ‘whiteouts’ comment? He made a racist remark on the Yao/Tmac article as well which was deleted…

  • http://www.lkz.ch/basket Darksaber

    Hooped up? your comment was all aces. honorary mention goes to both E and Jackie Moon (LOVE ME SEXYYYYYY!) for unleashing Micheal’s Black or White up in here. Great stuff, y’all.

  • http://www.lkz.ch/basket Darksaber

    Sh*t, just looked up “coon” since i never knew what it meant. The dumb prick who used that on SLAMONLINE needs to shut it, fast.

  • Logan

    damn Kob! 50 bucks? maybe once some money starts rolling in bruh!

  • Jackie Moon

    I would have paid $50 for someone to make up an article about Lebron missing fourteen shots in a row, but then it actually happened.

  • http://www.mynameinorange.blogspot.com Hisham

    whiteout is a very masochistic person to go on a basketball website where he is constantly confronted with articles, pictures and comments about very rich black people. Did your psychiatrist order you to do this as a part of your therapy, WhiteOut?

    I’m sorry, I cannot take internet racisism seriously. We are all basically faceless beings typing our opinion on a basketball website. None of us will ever meet Whiteout, and even if we randomly did meet at some point, he’d just in our our faces.

  • Jackie Moon

    Spaceship Jay – he would what?

    Wouldn’t pay $49.99 for his 81 pt game shoes I never even heard about until eBay resellers. Kobe’s Webmaster people shouldn’t have the nerve to charge that amount for a blog/updated sparingly site with layoffs left and right in the US which hurts the world Economy (and every nation’s currency amounts) as a whole too.
