Dear Kobe Bryant: Tell Me How Destiny Tastes

lefty thomas www.dbbsports.comContributor IFebruary 26, 2009

The L.A. Lakers stand at 20-3 so far this season. I would do the exact winning percentage, if I could remember the math formula. But it is well over 80 percent.

And Kobe Bryant, you have not even had to work that hard yet. Tell me, Kobe, how does destiny taste?

I know you have tasted it before. You and Shaq O'Neal were unbeatable for a while and the expectations were great.

With your two seven-foot pals Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum, lightning-fast Trevor Ariza, and not to mention a bench that is deeper than Kristin Davis’s throat, somehow this season, Lady Destiny has you laser locked in her sights and her dangerous glory is stalking your every move.

Is it hard to play with Destiny’s acid on your tongue as you shoot?

Good. A winning season should be tough. Even if the difficulty is more about managing your own and everyone else’s expectations than winning games.

You have everything you need to lead your amazing team to the Finals.

Savor this moment, Kobe.

Develop a taste for Destiny. Suck on it like a uranium Altoid. Let it shock and fuel you. 

Above all, don’t choke on Destiny. She seems to be the only thing between you and another Championship.
