Kobe has changed to a black mask for this game. He can still go back to the original clear one if he wants.

Just saw the mask Kobe is thinking about wearing tonight. All black. If he goes w it, he'll look like a Super Hero.

Looks like hes turning this Masked Mamba thing into a Nike marketing gimmick.

Will be interesting to see a player actually wear a Black mask on the court.

I'm sorry, but is this the NBA or WWF? If this was LeBron, everyone would say "he's an attention seeker trying to be different"

Kobe could be playing with a blindfold and shoot 1-40 FG and PSD would be saying "ZOMG he's such a warrior. Da Blaq M@mba bro. Da Zen Mastah tort him dis!!"

If Lebron were the first to do this, everyone would call him an attention whore. But it's Kobe, so it's "the black masked mamba" or some "batman"-esque crap.

Don't think anyone would bash Lebron for making a custom mask to protect a broken nose/prevent risking further injury (unless it said "The king" or "The choosen one" on it).

I'll tell you this if Kobe rode a bike to the game that said black mamba... Well even though he didn't pick his nickname I would still cut him up for it.

The king james bike was a bit too much...

You're moronic comments really need to end now. Enough with your baiting against Laker fans. I've even warned you about using the term "Kobephiles", but I think you have comprehension issues.


The black mask was easier for him because he could breathe better, but when the Pistons players kept whacking at his face and contesting shots right at his mask, the mask kept coming off, and in the middle of the 2nd qtr, he changed it back to the mask he wore in the previous 3 games because that one actually stayed on his face.



Get over yourself, you don't even contribute anything even worthy to ProSportsDaily other than bashing Laker fans and everything Laker related and calling them "Kobephiles".


And if you don't like that, well......


Get over it....


and...



You're welcome.

All the talk of Kobe and his stupid mask is getting really old. That's all the announcers in the games talk about now that he started wearing it. Oh man it's so unbelievable that he's playing in a mask. Big deal. Everyone is making it seem like Kobe is the first b-ball player to ever wear a mask in a game. Lots of people have had to wear a mask at some point in the game. Rip Hamilton wears one every game. Shut up about about the damn mask.

Looks like the magical mask couldn't help him avoid a loss to the lowly Pistons last night.

Lebron did do it and you didn't hear crap.

Plus I bet Nike jumps all over this endorsement in one way or another. Maybe commercials or 'Masked Mamba' edition shoe.

So I don't see it as being an attention whore but more about the dollar $$$$
