National Basketball Association star Kobe Bryant wins an Oscar - but not everyone is happy

06 March, 2018, 03:16 | Author: Conrad Doyle

Bryant's retirement led him to start his own production company, Kobe Studios, which is reportedly seeking advice from both TV producers Shonda Rhimes and Oprah Winfrey herself in how to be successful with it.

Los Angeles Lakers great Kobe Bryant is retired from the National Basketball Association but the All-Star is still winning off the court. But winning - and making/breaking records - has been become a resounding theme for arguably one of the greatest basketball players of all time.

Retired Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant brought home gold at Sunday night's 90th annual Academy Awards.

"I don't know if it's possible, as basketball players we're really supposed to shut up and dribble", Bryant said.

"I'm so excited to see what God has in store for us as a family now that one chapter is closing and new ones are opening", she said.

This comment follows Ingraham's reaction to National Basketball Association player Lebron James who commented on the political issues plaguing the United States of America.

The Lakers, Magic Johnson, Paul Pierce and Dwyane Wade were also among those who paid their tributes to Bryant, while James and Portland Trail Blazers' guard Evan Turner praised the 39-year-old's powerful speech.

Many on Twitter felt that awarding Bryant an Oscar was yet another example of Hollywood hypocrisy, proving their #MeToo movement was just lip service in light of the bombshell Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal.

His agent Mitchell Stubbs confirmed the sad news via Twitter saying that the star passed away at his home in Newport, Oregon . He starred on the show from 1977 until its landmark final episode in 1983, seen by 106 million people.

In 2003, Bryant was accused of raping a 19-year-old hotel employee in Colorado - an accusation that resurfaced amid his Oscars triumph. After retiring from the sport, the multi-talented Bryant had spoken passionately about wanting to be a storyteller, with hopes of carving out a new legacy away from the basketball court.

The petition is now less than 700 signatures shy of its 17,000-supporters goal. Oh yeah, it wasn't even nominated for an award, I forgot. "Woody Allen and James Franco didn't get anything".

In the Oscar's press room, Kobe Bryant doubled down on his comment.
