Time Warner Cable Chooses Most Arbitrary Kobe Bryant Identifier Ever

Kobe Bryant spoke at a press conference on Tuesday to discuss the status of his Achilles injury recovery prior to the Lakers' game against the Washington Wizards. Any home viewers who may have been confused as to who he was received an often-forgotten reminder that The Black Mamba was the 1997 Slam Dunk Champion. 

Fifteen-time All-Star, five-time NBA champion or former MVP probably could've worked to identify him here, but who remembers those things, anyway?

Hat tip to reddit for the find.
