How is Kobe Bryant "Hooked" on call of duty? no offensive.. but Kobe isn't a gamer, dude is to busy with basketball and life.

I'm so sick and tired of people mentioning "COD" like if you play COD your considered "cool". I can not wait till the series gets milked so hard.. it's going downhill.

i think hes "hooked" in the sense that its the only game he will play (when he plays videogames)...but i agree, kobe, along with a lot of other athletes are much more focused on their sport and perfecting their craft rather than be a gamer

He claims to sleep 4 hours a day. He seems like the type of person that would go 100% or not do it at all. So he's gonna play games but since he's not trying to be the best he's only gonna play a little bit. Lebron is better than Kobe though!

"but Kobe isn't a gamer, dude is too busy with basketball and rape."

Kobe Bryant 1st or 2nd greatest player ever, it's either him or lebron can't go wrong with either picks.

At least hes not as egotistical as Lebron. I can't stand the self proclaimed king or chosen one or whatever the hell he has tattooed on his back.

klashawnd3167d ago (Edited 3167d ago )

Michael Jordan. Case closed.

@Wenis - He's just as if not more egotistical than LeBron. And that's a fact.

manaxknight13166d ago

at least in this generation, he is the best...

NLGSean3166d ago (Edited 3166d ago )

I don't think he is a core gamer, but he seems to dig COD... Didn't he buy that Call of Duty Black Ops Jeep some time ago?

Must be nice to have millions...

SwampCroc3167d ago

he should maybe stop playing COD and maybe start playing some Basketball... doesn't look like the Lakers year this year...

saladthieves3167d ago

This is, I have no words.

bwazy3167d ago

News Companies actually paid this guy to ask Kobe that question?

The fuck?!
