Kobe Bryant’s New World Order

Sports Guy suggests that Kobe Bryant should “turn heel”- i.e., in wrestling parlance, when a previous good guy suddenly turns into a villain, like when lifelong hero Hulk Hogan became a bad guy in 1996 with the NWO.

It’s a funny analysis, but I would say Kobe’s already done it- acting like an arrogant jerk to everyone around him, running Shaq out of town, that whole rape thing… and the Karl Malone confrontation just clinches it. Remember when the Hulkster and “Macho Man” Randy Savage got in their fight over Miss Elizabeth? I can just picture Kobe going on PTI and telling Karl Malone that “you lust in your heart, brother.”
