81 points apparently gets you endorsements

Sticking with the theme of being untimely, here's another story from last week that we have just discovered. Well, it's more like something we've just finally seen.

The all powerful Mighty MJD brought this to our attention while he was fading Sea Breezes and popping Vicodin like M&M's while being the weekend guy over at Deadspin. Kobe Bryant, the man who scored 81 points, and didn't even get laid the same night (so we think), is back doing TV ads.

His latest is a commercial for Nike where we think he's trying to sell his image opposed to, say, a shoe. Here's what Kobe actually says on the commercial:

"Love me or hate me, it’s one or the other. Always has been. Hate my game, my swagger. Hate my fadeaway, my hunger. Hate that I’m a veteran. A champion. Hate that. Hate it with all your heart. And hate that I’m loved, for the exact same reasons."

We here at The Big Picture do hate Kobe because, yes, he's successful, rich and plays for the Lakers. But it seems like he's missing a key reason why people hate him.

Perhaps his feud with Shaq? Nah.

His lack of a college education? Sorta, but not really.

His unethical behavior in Eagle, Colorado? Oh yeah. That's it.

We suppose it would be bad advertising and all, but the commercial would've been more accurate if it said something like, "Hate me because I fucking raped a woman and didn't go to jail."

Yeah, probably not the best way to market a player.

In other news: Oklahoma State basketball coach Eddie Sutton was injured in a car accident last weekend after going on a drunken joy ride with LeBron James' mother.

Why does Kobe have to be so grumpy all the time?
