Why hasn't Kobe Hosted SNL as of yet? Or done a movie or something? I think he'd do an exceptional job hosting SNL. I was watching those Ankle Insurance commercials via youtube and forgotten how funny they were....too funny. They were hilarious. Now, I know there's plenty of time to do said things. But I was wondering why hasn't he up to this point?!?! Has he been offered something along those lines, but turned it down? Do you guys remember when LBJ hosted? That show, in all honesty(imo)was not at funny! Except for the part when the guy told him to go get him a juice box,LoL. Oh yeah, when I say movie...I'm not talkin about nothing with "Space Jam" in it! Geez, there are other titles outside of calling it Space Jam 24!!!!! What are your thoughts? How do guys think he'll do?

Because he is polarizing as any superstar since oscar robinson

Has Lebron hosted already?

Does anyone remember back when Jordan used to host? Oh, the immortal Sweetwater Baines!

Thats because Kobe has the personality of plaque on a toothbrush.

I'll leave you with his 1 attempt at having a personality:

Lol. My 2 year old daughter is a big sesame street and Abby fan and after this I got her to know who Kobe was. She was still more interested in what Abby was doing.

He doesn't need to, he just signed a 3 year $100 million contract or something... He doesn't really care for that stuff.

Because Lebron was never accused of rape...granted the case was thrown out but I cannot and will not support Kobe in anything. I would not watch a movie or a SNL with Kobe in it and I'm sure many others feel the same way, its bad enough I have to watch him on the court.

that's because they have people host who are admired, non polarizing, and appeal to a large percentage of viewers. people would be turned off with someone as polarizing as kobe, same as tiger.

the NBA can feature Kobe in their NBA Cares commercial since Kobe has a respectable basketball career and he can be on sesame street because he's not a target for ridicule among toddlers... SNL? He'd leave a bad taste in people's mouths.. no pun intended.

Kobe has no personality... Guys Like Jordan and LeBron can light up a room.

:laugh: this is true. But as a Laker fan, i would prefer watching Kobe on SNL than Lebron.

Because Kobe is more concerned with winning Championships rather than doing TV shows.

Really he'd have nothing to gain from being on TV.

He doesn't really have that kind of talent IMO. He's not an entertainer, in that sense. Who knows, maybe he's just not interested.

i think the answer the op was fishing for was something like

ITS THE EVIL KOBE HATING CONSPIRACY,THEY WONT LET HIM ON SNL BECAUSE HE'D BE THE BEST HOST EVER AND EVERYONE WOULD LOVE HIM!! blah blah

...something like that right? ;)

Kobe gets mentioned on sitcoms and shows so often that he doesn't have to appear in person. Everyone knows who they're referring to.

Kobe isn't that guy.

You put Kobe on a show with Ellie Sechback, George Lopez, Jimmy Kimmel, Best Damn, or the Fan Night Crew (Ernie, Webb, and Kevin) and you see who he is.

He is an old man in a young guys body and does better with guys who let him be in his comfort zone and who he knows he can trust to not spin something after the fact.

Yeah Kobe seems to do shows and stuff more in his comfort zone. Whenever he's on the late night stuff he's super laid back though.

Plus you have to remember that Kobe is older than Lebron, Wade, Mello etc.... and in a different environment off the court. I think that's more for the younger guys.
