Why do you hate Kobe Bryant so much? -- Andrew Dixon, Miami
I've said it before ("One-on-one with readers") and I'll say it here again: Kobe is one of my favorite players. Aside from Shaq, he's unquestionably the best player in the NBA. I greatly admire his talent, his creativity, and his competitive spirit. Who's more fun to watch than Kobe?
