Nope. You're wrong here. Though yes, I love watching images of Bryant doing that fade away jumper and drawing nothing but "air".Originally Posted by Moinllieon
"Airball" Bryant has many meanings. Since he wishes to compare himself with Michael Jordan, who's nickname is "Air", I thought I'd select a similiar nickname for Kobe Bryant. What more fitting then his "Airballness". I've seen many LA games during the time Kobe and Shaq played together and there were countless times when Kobe's fadeaway drew nothing but "air". Remember the Houston play-off game? Didn't Shaq grab one of Kobe's "airballs" and dunked it home to win the game??
You give me a player who consistently takes 16 shots to score 17pts like today, and previously something like 27 shots to score 23 pts, and 17 shots to score 11 pts ect..... There have been lost of games where Kobe has taken say 20 shots to score 20 pts.
Does the nickname "Airball" not suit him???
