What on earth does Kobe's Oscar have to do with FA's? That
oscar is a personal thing he decided to venture into.

Honestly this is an old and kind of silly argument. Did Magic and Kareem here, keep Shaq and Kobe from wanting to play here?

Players who get caught up in anything other than the money going in their pockets are kind of stupid. If I hear some guy doesn't want to play here because of anyone's legacy, then I will be more than happy he doesn't play here. In my opinion, he would be feeble and better left for the Clippers!

Honestly I think the only intent here was to brag about his Oscar in this forum by trying to disguise it a basketball topic.

What Kobe did in Colorado was very wrong...he was stupid and careless, go caught, accused, went through a trial, and no charges came of it. I still think part of what happened was consensual, some of it wasn't. I mean, she did go to his room, duh.

My point is, Kobe is not exactly like Weinstein or Spacey, these dudes have done this stuff for years and years and years without ever getting in trouble for it. I mean, dozens of abuse allegations...I read all the Kobe hate because of what he did in Colorado, and I get that.....but, its not exactly the same.

On what basis do you believe that “some of it wasn’t consensual”? The only thing Kobe was guilty of, as far as any of us know, is adultery. Other than that, what did he do wrong that you know of for sure?

And btw, Kobe was, in fact, brought up on charges. That’s how it went to trial. You have to be charged with a crime(s) in order for there to be a trial.


The details were not particularly flattering. The police thought there was enough evidence there and in the settlement, Kobe even said he saw how she could have felt it wasn't consensual. Its a really old story now and nobody really knows or cares about the details anymore.

This is nothing like the me too movement though. I feel that is more about men in power who use their power to make women do things with them in fear of getting fired or their careers not advancing. Kobe's incident just seemed like two young people getting together randomly. He claims she said no and he stopped, she seemed to claim it went further. Regardless, not the same thing. Kobe shouldn't have ever been in that situation but you live and learn.

Do you have the quote? That’s news to me.


Its not letting me copy and paste it for some reason but if you Google "Kobe settlement" it comes up in the articles.
