Lil Wayne Says Kobe Bryant Inspires Him In Life [Video]

Wed, May 9, 2012 by

In the video above, you can watch Melissa Rohlin of the Los Angeles Times interview Lil Wayne while he was sitting courtside at the Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Lakers game last week in California.

They talk about why the L.A. Lakers are Weezy‘s favorite NBA team, growing up watching them play, who his favorite player is (says Kobe Bryant is the greatest player to touch a basketball), how Kobe has inspired him in his life, his kids musically inspire him, if the players acknowledge him at the games, and more.

    IF YOU CANT WATCH THIS VIDEO AND TELL THAT WAYNE IS ON SOME TYPE OF DRUG…. YOU ARE FUCKEN STUPID …… STUPID ……*STUPID*

  • Fame

    He on that syrup

  • nutmeg

    Actually if you do know about probation, you would know your charge must be drug related in order too even get court ordered too have a drug testing. In this case his gun charge leaves him free from having too deal with that shit for months after his release, he was able too smoke and drink* (look at his being released photos a nice cigar and some expensive looking whiskey i think.. in the crystal glass) AKA the reason you hear him spark up before he spits his verse in the tracks he jumped on after his release. He seems too mix unused verses with his new ones on the later tracks like the mac miller record. But when he went too court for his AZ drug and gun charge he got the gun charge dropped but had too agree drug testing +alcohol which is rare so… Depending how far along you are sometimes you dont have too meet your P.O. for every 2-3 months. Only in the beginning do you every have too go once a week if your doing some sort of community service otherwise till shift too reporting too ur P.O every month. also with his schedule he wouldn’t have too do much p.o. reporting. Also you can use prescription drugs (though some redneck places even get strict about that, but if you really need it theres not much they can do. He still takes painkillers for migraines wink wink Ha but it is the reason he added the crack on his head while justifying it when your addicted its easy too do so plus since he still has bullet fragments Catscans arnt a option so you cant treat the headaches if u cant see what causes them. Read T.I.’s story about getting addicted too -painkillers vicodin and oxycotin during rehab and falling into a deep addiction during early probation that lead too the MDMA charge which drug tests showed opiates (painkillers) reason he spent another 6months or whatever. He mentions asking Eminem “when do you know your a addict” too which he replied that if it gets too the point that ur hurting ur self and people around you that u should reach a point that its obviously not healthy nor a smart thing too do.

    fuckin retard. kobe will never be have the player that MJ was. granted kobe is the best in the game today but his skill will NEVER compare to jordans. Its kinda like how biggie and tupac use to be the best then wayne WAS the best and he is now basically giving away his throne. Kids like Logic and all them others are on the come up. wayne better wtach the fuck out. fuckin pussy ass skateboarding wannabe.

  • Young Nino

    @leak Yeah, he does look high… My first though, but he is on fuckin’ prob…

  • RealTuneFan

    Who ever is sayin he aint on drugs is just fucking stupid. Watch his latest videos and you can here his voice sounds totally different and his eyes are not closed. Watch the way he blinks. It’s not a normal blink. It takes like 3 seconds for him to get his fuckin lid back up. Something is slowing him down and one but Mack Maine who’s sitting next to him will know. And all the Wayne fans who been bitching about him skateboarding and not doing drugs, don’t get excited cuz he’s fucking 29 years old. Been in the game since he’s 8 and a millionaire since he was 16. He’s moving on with his life so I suggest you all do the same. True Wayne fans love Wayne for Wayne. Not only for his music. I find it comical that people rip him apart when there the ones coming onto the website and watching and reading the news. Don’t go to the website if you don’t like him. No one gives a fuck about your dumbass opinions

  • RealTuneFan

    And another thing. Go watch his PSA on YouTube and he will personally explain why he is doing what he is doing. It’s like 20 min along and he is in his Miami crib. Wayne goes hard with everything that he does. Me and you niggas can’t do half the shit he does. And he has 100x more money than us so he’s doing something right.
