After winning his fourth Nba championship (and this time without Shaquille o’Neal help) Kobe Bryant is officially in the short list of Nba history best players.
I have always been an Nba fan and I have always liked watching talented players like Kobe. I really don’t know if he is the best player ever, or the second one. I don’t think anybody could really say who the best is. LeBron James is a monster, but he risks spending his career without any victory. Watching Kobe Bryant playing, I have always had a question in my mind: what the hell has he got tattooed on his arm? I know it has not much to do with his basketball skills and the whole “best player ever” issue many like talking about. But as I said, you cannot really tell who the best ever is and I find it quite silly keeping on talking about something you cannot really tell, if you know what I mean. It is quite like discussing about the existence of God. You can believe or not believe in God, but who would ever want to discuss or write something about it? So, let’s get back to the important thing, the point of this article: Kobe Bryant tattoo designs. Most of Nba players have got tattoos nowadays. It does not surprise anymore, but I think there is an interesting story behind Kobe Bryant tattoos. I think everybody knows about Bryant sexual assault case occurred in 2003. For those who can not remember it: Katelyn Faber, a 19-year old hotel employee, accused Bryant of raping her in his hotel room. Bryant admitted to have had an adulterous sexual encounter with his accuser, but denied the assault allegation.Nobody knows what really happened in that Hotel room, but they could find some kind of agreement, which allowed Bryant to go on with his basketball career.
Well, but, what has all that to do with Kobe’s tattoo designs? At the time of the incident Kobe Bryant was married to Vanessa Bryant. She was not exactly pleased from the whole story and, according to different rumours, in an attempt to make peace with her, Kobe gave her a 4 million dollars ring as apology and got following tattoos as a sign of his great love to her: the name Vanessa underneath a big crown (to symbolize his love to her queen) and two angel wings with the inscription “Psalm XVII” to express his steadfast faith.
So this is the big secret behind Kobe’s tattoo designs. Is he the best player ever in the history of the Nba? I do not mind, now I know what his tattoo designs are about.
