Kobe Bryant, aka Vino


Kobe Bryant recently tweeted that he loves his new nickname: vino. Is the 34-year-old Lakers star insinuating he gets better with age? Apparently. But the Bleacher Report suggests convincingly that he’s not getting better with age, just getting better at managing his age-related limitations. Either way, he’s only about two to three years away from having the Knicks pick him up for $25 million and try to build an offense around him!

Raj Parr tweeted about the new nickname and asked which wine is Kobe most like? My take: before the All-Star game he was a pass-toutgrain. But now he’s more point-driven.
