GLAM OR SHAM?: Kobe Bryant The Model

I won't use this opportunity to ride for the team I want to win The Playoffs. That's irrelevant. (Cough...Go Cavs.) And the bottom line is that Kobe Bryant is an exceptional basketball player.

But even his status as arguably the best player in the league doesn't excuse these photos. The L.A. Times has released what looks like a painful attempt at modeling on Kobe's part. The shoot just looks uncomfortable and awkward.

And that's before we even get to that bowtie, top hat and headband. Is he at a wedding, a baptism or on a basketball court? I'm confused.

See the rest below. What do you think of these shots, Glamazons? Glam or a Sham?



Photos: L.A. Times

After the game yesterday they asked him about the shoot. He said he didn't like the pics and that the LA Times photoshopped the hell out of them.
Which is believable. No excuse for that top hat pic, but like every
model, not all shoots are 100% perfect. I commend him for trying it
out (not like he needs the money, he just signed a $90 mil contract),
knowing the world would be watching. Hook him up with a better
stylist Glamazons!!! Then maybe he can be the NBAs Tom Brady. lol.
Or maybe not! Go Lakers.

SHAMful is what this photo shoot is. He doesn't even look like himself. It's just weird.
