Kobe Bryant Promotes Obamacare, Says Obama Could Make Lakers Roster
Breitbart Sports ^ | Mar 20, 2014 | staff

Posted on 03/20/2014 11:06:24 AM PDT by bkopto

On The Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday, Kobe Bryant said he thought the Lakers were so bad this year that even President Barack Obama could play for them.

Seriously.

Bryant, who is recovering from multiple injuries, said he got a call from the White House's chief of staff to help the White House promote Obamacare and pitched the Healthcare.gov website while reminding Patrick's listeners that they had until March 31 to sign up. When asked if Obama could play for the struggling Lakers, Bryant replied, "Yes, he could, actually."

"I'm not dissing the current roster that we have," he continued before saying that his comments were more of a "sign of respect" for Obama's basketball skills. Patrick compared Obama to Derek Fisher while Bryant said Obama was a left-handed version of the diminutive Michael Adams before settling on Nate "Tiny" Archibald.

I’ve seen Obama play. I’m a 5’ 10” white guy with a decent shot and I think I could beat that clown one-on-one.

Yeah, he could go straight from 3rd string at a fancy white boy school to the NBA. That’s why he missed 10 straight shots in front of those kids.

Also...it just sickens me that the sports world is so engaged with this moron. His knowledge of sports is extremely limited as has been exposed by interviews with him.

Bull Obama.

Why would athletes (who actually have some measurable talent in something) want to include a weak d*cked wimpoid without a measurable IQ point and no measurable ability to produce value in any area?

Coming from a guy whose only skill is cheating on his wife and putting a ball in a basket.

Being a man takes much more than that.

In other words.... The Lakers suck so bad - even Obama would be an improvement.

Way to insult your team, Kobe....basically he’s saying the Lakers suck so much, Obama could make the team.....I’m sure the other players on team appreciate that.

Don’t sell Kobe short, he also speaks fluent Italian. Still, I kind of wonder, what behind Kobe’s kissing up to the Obama’s here lately. One would almost conclude that Kobe is on the short list of ‘Playas’ to replace the infamous Reggie Love.

I watched Whitehouse down over the weekend. I’ve seen the light. Jamie Foxx’s fictitious character helped me see the light. Obama is a great man. And those evil republicans and military conservatives simply MUST be stopped. I’ll bet we could get most of the muslim nations to help us.

Maybe we could destroy the evil conservatives’ puppet in the middle east as well while we’re at it.

Then everything would be right with the world and utopia would finally be a reality.

The ONLY thing that matters is...... Hussein is having to ADVERTISE obamacare......

As if *that* isn’t enough.....he announced his brackets, flew to Florida for golf [aka fundraising] while Russia is redrawing the borders of sovereign nations.

I'm sure Kobe's recent injuries have all been treated by physicians that are paid for via Obamacare, and I'm sure he would be perfectly happy to have whatever care the government told him he could have. Clearly, if a highly sought after sports injury orthopedic surgeon wasn't covered by Obamacare, he would just use someone else...

Kobe’s doctors are top notch, no Obamacare for him or either of these basketball players who promote it..gee I wonder how much they are being paid to promote this awful law..we all know they are being paid millions to promote it, if they loved it so much they would do it for free

Good point. The Lakers have the fifth worst record in the NBA at this time. If 0bama were playing for the Lakers the Lakers would get the number one draft pick AND 0bama could hang out with his buddies in Beverly Hills and West LA. What else should 0bama spend his time on? Who cares about World War III erupting in Europe?

Wait a second there! His favorite team is the White Sox, even though he can’t name a single player past or present. And he loves ‘Kaminsky Park’ where they play and likes to boo the ‘referees’ there.

Irony abounds. Obamacare using pitchmen who will NEVER EVER EVER EVER use Obamacare, buy Obamacare, and don’t understand Obamacare.
