Kobe Bryant and four of his Los Angeles Laker teammates called for understanding, compassion and acceptance in a public service announcement released today. The release of the public service announcement comes six days after Bryant was fined $100,000 by the NBA for using an obscene antigay slur aimed at a referee during a game last Tuesday.
The Lakers and the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation announced on Friday they would work together to eliminate antigay slurs.
The announcement begins with Bryant saying, "There are all kinds of different people in the world. That's what makes the world special. So whether someone is different than you";
"In race," forward Lamar Odom said;
"Ethnicity," center Pau Gasol said;
"Political beliefs," guard Shannon Brown said;
"Religion," said forward Ron Artest;

"Because we're all in this together," all five players said.
Unbelievable. Sad. Just wrong.
Coercive. Politically correct. No longer free men.
So should we accept:
As just people different from you...
Who in the world says, what your *Orientation* is for means good?
The world is under demonic influence
I really wonder how many gays are interested in basketball. I know lesbians love the WNBA and most of the WNBA are lesbians but I doubt many gay men are watching the NBA. They most likely are watching some crap on Bravo.
Just like the Lakers are going to have “accept” not winning the NBA title this year.
“Good job comrades , now go play ball until your next Re- education and sensitivity training sessions!”
effing WEAK. I’m in L.A. and I hate the Lickers. In hindsight, CP3 made Kobe his butt boy in Game 1 so gay up, Kobe!
Wow, what did Lamar Odom, Pau Gasol, Shannon Brown, and Ron Artest do?
Especially ever since they ditched the "short shorts" in the 80s.
Pandering is what’s leading to the divisions in this country. Especially amongst sell outs like Bryant.
Just keep on alienating the fan base . . . what’s left of it.
Ron Artest preaching about “understanding, compassion and acceptance” ?
LOL isn’t this the jackass who went into the stands after a fan a few years back? And who knows what else is in his record.
You do not want to see this.
How could they shame themselves like this?
Straight males, in great shape, successful athletes, bowing down to the “sensitivity” of homosexuals????
Probably some gay teenagers threatened suicide if the Lakers didn’t do this.
I don’t know...
Yes words can be “hurtful”. Big deal.
And people’s sexual behavior as a political issue disgusts me.
The announcement begins with Bryant saying, “There are all kinds of different people in the world. That’s what makes the world special”
Kobe Bryant should make some anti-rape PSA’s.
Karma, meet Kobe!!!!
Forced tolerance IS NOT acceptance.
Agreed, especially since I recall the gross detail that Kobe attacked the girl from behind...isn’t that right?
Take it easy... let’s not get off topic.
This is sooooo gay!
I wonder what Kobe will have to say when his kids are in the first or second grade and they are read “My two daddies” by the teacher. The sodomites never stop. They always want more. I wish they would just get back in the closet. All male sodomites are pedophiles any way. They are useless and a drain on the medical system and the general population.
| Bubble gum...helium...half a song...a kazoo...a candy necklace...lipstick. For as little as 40¢ a day - 2 pills ... Hey, just a minute ... If it only costs 40¢ a day - why can't these rump rangin' sphincter pokin' butt pirates buy their own g. d. medicine?
This has been a public service announcement.
If you want off my ping list get over it!
Yeah, but now that they wear skirts out there you’d think the trannies would like it.
Does anyone still claim that NBA and NFL players aren’t slaves?
Los Angeles Lakers:
It's not a team......It's a lifestyle!
It’s a game. Their minds are not changed, and forcing homosexual compliance will harbor deeper resentment — I speculate of course.
The fact that 50% of homosexuals who have AIDS sure makes this world a better place,doesn’t it?
About 3 or 4 years ago the Lakers were playing the Celtics in a regular season game and the Lakers wore their 80's uniform shorts. They did not do well in first half and at halftime they switched to the longer shorts.
well seems the NBA is going the way of the WNBA.
pooftas on parade at the NBA.
political beliefs eh? oh yeah I can surely see understanding compassion and acceptance from this gang /sarc
