I put emphasis on the turnovers, because that is all everyone can do. Listen, the man has been out for 240 days. Eight months exactly, but look at his other stats! To me, I think it is quite impressive for such a player of his game type to come back from such an injury. If you watched closely, there were glimpses of the “old” Kobe we all knew. The double pump finish with his left, his effort and passion in every facial expression, sprint, and movement. Also, his size-up, jab, mid-range jump shot.
That being said, everything takes time and with time there will be progress. I don’t care what anyone says, the Mamba has returned; you’ll see!
If you’ve ever doubted yourself, walk deep into any forest. Notice how the trees still stand even though they are given no recognition. Walk along any stream. The water still flows, though no one stops to praise it. Watch the stars late at night; they shine without acknowledgment. Humans are just the same. We are made out of the same elements as these beautiful wonders. Always remember your beauty and self worth.
Lady: could you recommend some sweat pants that could be worn in public. Something more classy?
Me: Possibly Polo, they’re a great look.
Lady: Mmm nothing gangster please.
Me: (bites tongue and walks away)
REALLY? What gives you the assumption that I’m going to recommend a “gangster” style to you? Firstly, what does this “gangster” entail? Is it my appearance, because I take pride on my appearance. I do not excuse any comments of that sort for ignorance, I’m quite offended and I pity her.
