I read that Kobe's teammates have been calling him "81" lately... the article touted it as his new nickname, which begged the question: was there an 'old' nickname?

Kobe's been one of the few superstars that haven't had a true nickname that's actually stuck. I don't think "81" is going to stick.... and what the heck, if I was to give Kobe a nickname... it would be... let me think...
Well, I guess what my friends and I call him during games: "Jordan Junior" which would never fly and I'm sure he would hate it :lol: but you can't help but feel that same energy that you remember when watching Jordan.... like he could just light up at any moment and become superhuman, and you have the privelege of being along for the ride
