Dribble pass shoot dunk
Heir apparent to the throne
Born gifted with airborne abilities
Good life
Good family
On the road to fame and fortune

Dribble pass shoot dunk
Millions calling your name
As you mystify
With spell bounding moves
Claiming your place in history
The world is your table
Youth on your side

Dribble pass shoot dunk
Championships
Fall into your hand
Like leaves from a tree
You pluck them adding them to your crown
No one can stop you
From claiming the mantle
Laid down by your predecessor
The greatest player ever

Dribble pass shoot dunk
Beautiful wife
Even though some deem it a travesty
She wasn’t a sista
But because of you she was accepted
Beautiful child
To complete the beautiful picture

Dribble pass dunk shoot
Black Camelot
Round table of basketballs finest
And you are King Kobe
Ready to pull Xcalibur from the stone
And take the throne
Never realizing the Kingdom shall not pass to you

Dribble pass shoot dunk
One fateful knight
While away
Met young girl
With stars in her eyes
And confusion in her mind
Things happen
That only known between you two
He says, she says
Yet investigation begins

Dribble pass shoot dunk
Dropped the ball
In mid dribble
Making a pass
Trying to shoot
Your game
But the dunk
Didn’t go through

Dribble pass shoot dunk
Adultery
Is the only crime
Yet others say different
One night
Of cheap pleasure
Threatens to destroy
Your journey to the throne
Dark clouds overhead
Folk’s backs turning on you
Black Camelot
Destroyed
No matter the outcome
The only thing that will be left
Is the sound of a basketball
Bouncing with no one to guide it….

this is deep Bishop
all in a night
brought down from his flight
evil was just waiting
for the guard to drop
his guard
and it only
took one night
Peace

well felt
sad shameful game
he player and shot
the ball in the wrong
basket and the points
is not his but the court
has a game plan
da dethrone of a star
in a game call puball
the late night call
was a small play
now tyme to pay up!
career shot , wasted
broken family of un bond
kobe .....son ya done ..
now face the championship
of reality life before u

another sad song written
unto the history of men

just amazing. The poem, but definitely the situation. I don't like Kobe personally. He's always made me sick. I know there are a lot of Kobe fans out there, but I'm not one of them. I do believe he's gifted and I also believe he's innocent. Innocent yes, but I figure these professional athletes HAVE TO be a little more conscious about their situations.....AT ALL TIMES.

Good one Bishop.
