Bryant's words and actions were captured by TNT's cameras during the network's national broadcast of the Lakers' regular-season home finale. “What I said last night should not be taken literally. My actions were out of frustration during the heat of the game, period,” Bryant said in the statement. “The words expressed do NOT reflect my feelings towards the gay and lesbian communities and were NOT meant to offend anyone.”
People who love Kobe will have second thoughts about his sportsmanship and those who don't like him will like him a little more now. My advice to Kobe is please stop being so stupid to get caught on camera. That's exactly why Michael Jordan used to talk to referees with his jersey over his lips, so please learn from the master before you associate yourself with him.
