Lakers’ Kobe Bryant bobblehead again looks nothing like Kobe Bryant (pic)


The Los Angeles Lakers this 2015-16 NBA campaign are giving away three Kobe Bryant bobbleheads to pay tribute to the superstar as he nears his retirement at season’s end. The team on Tuesday night gave away the second Kobe bobblehead to fans who showed up at Staples Center to watch the Lakers take on the Memphis Grizzlies.

And yet again — more on that later — said bobblehead looked absolutely nothing like Kobe Bryant.

To wit:

It’s certainly no stretch to observe that bobblehead doesn’t look much at all like Bryant.

As noted above, Tuesday’s giveaway marked the second time the Lakers have given out a Kobe bobblehead to commemorate his imminent retirement. Suffice to say, the Lakers didn’t come close to improving upon matching Bryant’s likeness, as the first one given out earlier this month was just as bad in capturing what he truly looks like.

The next Kobe Bryant bobblehead giveaway is scheduled for a March 30 tilt against the Miami Heat. Given the first two, the odds arguably are good that the third and final one won’t look like the Lakers superstar, either.

And for what it’s worth, the Lakers beat the Grizzlies by a score of 107-100, with Bryant scoring 20 points. So at the least the team did something right on the court on Tuesday night.
