Kobe ‘Works’ Spike Lee’s Nerves

Kobe is known for many things on and off the court; his ball handling skills are ridiculous, his ‘love’ for the ladies is legendary and now he can add bitchassness to his roster of talents. Flip the script for more

KOBE Bryant slam-dunked Spike Lee right before the taping of “Kobe: Doin’ Work” by demanding creative control over the documentary and forcing the director to drive to his house to beg for a meeting to save the project, sources told Page Six.

Lee had worked for months to get permission from Bryant, the Lakers team, coach Phil Jackson, the NBA and ESPN, which will air the day-in-the-life documentary on May 16. The director had already flown to Los Angeles, where 30 cameras were in place for the April 13, 2008, Lakers game against the San Antonio Spurs.

But suddenly Bryant said he wouldn’t cooperate unless he was granted creative control, sources said. Lee tried several times to call Bryant, who wouldn’t accept his calls. So Lee, at the suggestion of ESPN broadcaster Stephen A. Smith, drove to Bryant’s house in a gated community, where Bryant refused to see him, sources said.

Kobe, stop being a little b*tch. Spike Lee, one of the greatest filmmakers of our time, is trying to immortalize your “greatness” and you can’t even pick up the f*cking phone? Looks like you’ve been taking a few cues from your crazy ass wife.

    Spike, should not be suprised. Kobe is talented but he is the ultimate jerk! This takes away from his potential greatness. I can’t stand this dude.

  • Lady Architect (Feeling Good)

    Yup he’s being a DIVA…he should be happy people want to do a documentary about him…It’s the fans that make you more than the game….Being a lil punk will only hurt you in the end and he probably don’t know anything about creative control to begin with. His stupid agent or silly wife must’ve sit that in his ear.

    I feel Kobe. I would want creative control, too. I wouldn’t want someone tarnishing my image even more.

    I give Kobe props for asking for creative control on the documentary.

  • Meggie Letterman

    Somethigs telling me Vaanessa’s behind this….Kobe’s not capable of making decisions for himself.
    He should be luck someone wants to still be bothered with his No doesn’t “really” mean No ass.


    I think Kobe is being ridiculous nobody wants to see about his life. You should have done a show on Lebron he is more down to earth and a people person. Kobe is way too arrogant.

  • Negrodamus Believes

    And the fact that most african americans have this mindset that Los Angeles is the Asia of the black community doesnt help.

    Thats why I made the comment “who wouldve thought so many black folks lived outside of Va.”

    I get it, Kobe doesn’t play in a city seen as the kind to black folks. WTF is Cleveland? Why would anyone with a little bit of money want to live there? Lol please tell me cause I’ve been there and I was begging to get on the next flight.

  • blackpride09

    Lol, Kobe is on his monthly.

  • Je$$i

  • Point Blank

    Creative control means none of the truth will be seen.

    I have never seen so much hate for an african american athlete of his caliber and it all stems from the brother not marrying a black female and that modern day lynching in Denver.
    Sorry I have to disagree with U. I didn’t like him from jump because he was an arrogant prick

  • Negrodamus Believes

    @Mock Star

    Your opinion, but what’s your age range? I notice most folks in kobe’s age range don’t like him.

  • blackpride09

    and tony parker can rap. and dana barros too
