    I honestly don't give a shit about sports so I have no reason to like or defend Kobe but, based solely on having just read the Wikipedia page of the incident, I wouldn't call him a rapist, not even close.

    I'm also one to believe that whatever occurred (I won't share or debate my opinion), that since 2003, he became the father of four daughters, helped create a charity (didn't just donate) that provided after-school programs to thousands of kids that wouldn't have the opportunity, and has become a better person. This isn't a Bill Cosby/Weinstein scenario where it occurred again and again over the course of the years.

    You make a good point, Eze, and I don't want to belabor things any more than I have to. I just think it's important, for the (alleged) victims' sake, that we don't give these guys a pass.

    I mean... they settled in civil court and she didn't want to testify in the criminal case. If you settle, what is that presuming?

    Michael Irving stabbed a teammate in the neck in the locker-room. No one cares.

    I don't know enough about the Bryant case. Sounds like he did something terrible and never faced justice.

    I still think a father and daughter dying in a helicopter crash is a terrible thing.

    The lady was receiving death threats and having her entire sexual history broadcast to the nation on prime time television. She settled because she couldn't take any more. She was 19 years old. A second accuser was set to come forward but decided not to when she saw what happened to the first one.

    Note that this is more an indictment of Bryant's legal team than the man himself. To his credit, Kobe Bryant did issue an apology later on.

    You know what? After reading the entire Wikipedia page I might have been talking out of my ass. Disregard me.

    Regardless of which side you're on with Kobe, can we all at least agree that Ari Shaffir is a POS?
