Someone, at some point, is going to have to tell Kobe Bryant that his self-referential tweets and self-imposed nicknames are not as cool as he thinks, even if he’s the coolest jock in the high school of life. But while no one has stepped forward to tell Bryant to stop calling himself Vino and the Black Mamba, at least someone has poked fun at the over-the-top hoopla surrounding Bryant upon his return from the Achilles injury that ended last season for him.
The Jazz spoofed Bryant’s meant-to-be-epic return video with one of their own in the run-up to Wednesday’s game. Their foil was none other than Marvin Williams, who had … missed four days with a heel injury.
Williams returned that fateful Wednesday and played 27 minutes, scoring eight points, even without the help of Darth Vader entrance music.
