Dear Kobe,

You are the man and all, and I'm one of your biggest fans... but "Black Mamba"??
OK, sure, the snake is superfast and deadly accurate, fine, whatever....
but there are a couple of unwritten 'rules', that govern nicknames among sports stars: a) (with rare exception) you don't give yourself a nickname, and b) if you DO, try not to make it something that's already been used by a female comic book character.
