Kobe Bryant Covers 'GQ' March 2010

Kobe Bryant Covers 'GQ' March 2010

Kobe Bryant and his broken right index finger take the March 2010 cover of GQ, on stands February 23. Here’s what the 31-year-old Lakers co-captain discussed:

On being surrounded by the best of the best athletes at the Olympics: “I felt like Harry Potter going to Hogwarts.”

On his relationship with Shaq: “The biggest mistake I made was responding to what he was saying about me. Once I responded, now that made it seem like I was part of that whole thing. It’s like, Okay, these two are against each other. As opposed to just staying quiet, which is what I’ve been doing the last few years. Let him say what he needs to say.”

On how his win-at-all-costs mindset doesn’t carry over to the rest of his life: “What people see on court is another side of me; it’s not me. That dark side that’s coming to get you – ha ha! I’m not losing this fucking game – that’s not who I am. That’s part of me. Off the court, I’m completely different.”

    I love Kobe Bean Bryant… I admire his drive, more men should aspire to be like him. Let’s go LAKERS @ bella I find it funny that you don’t like him but you read the column and comment how ironic… When I don’t like someone I avoid even looking @ anything about them. Funny!

    Basketball or women being safe?
    If you choose the former over the latter, you are as bad as he is.

    More men should aspire to be like him? Are you out of your damn mind?!

    @ JB fu*k off! We all know how that situation went down… Another tramp trying to get money, by saying he raped her! Get off your high horse as*. He has blame but he doesn’t deserve all the crap he’s gotten. I don’t condone his behavior but we have to admit their are some slutty women roaming around for an athlete to get paid!

  • Cristobal

    I love Kobe!!!!

  • engineersdating

    i love colorado

  • lakers fan in boston

    i think this is his 1st cover in a while
    not since the incident i think
    anyways, as a lakers fan, i think kobe is the fan, altho the lakers have been disappointing me this season
    yes, he’s cocky but come on, he’s the greatest basketball player, well was, but kobe in his prime is better than lebron imo

  • Venom

    Kobe is awesome!! He needs to clean up his language a bit but, that is the way it is. He looks handsome.

    Now…Pau Gasol should be next in GQ!!! PAU GASOL!! :-)
