As the LA Lakers played the Utah Jazz Saturday, Utah fans seized the opportunity to make fun of Kobe’s all white everything photo shoot by rocking similar outfits and carrying signs proclaiming: “Pilgrim Kobe is not welcome in Utah” and “Why you gotta steal my style?”
A few even got the best of Kobe’s dad, Jelly Bean Bryant, while he was being interviewed during the game. As he was discussing his son’s performance, a fan held a “Pilgrim Kobe” pic behind his back, in what has got to be “Pilgrim” Kobe’s 1st official television appearance… LOL!

A friend and I were discussing Kobe’s plight during the Hawks game last weekend. I seriously want to hear what his response is to the photos.
Did he like them? Where they everything he expected? Did he approved them before they ran? Is he pissed off? So many questions but the main one is… Will Kobe ever get past the jokes about THESE IMAGES? Does he even want to? Hmmm….
