Snoop Dogg Gave Kobe Bryant The Ugliest Car Of All Time
The year of Kobe Bryant was supposed to have ended when he finally played his last game for the Lakers, after receiving a whole bunch of gifts from teams that pretended to like him after years of him being the NBA's most arrogant superstar. But apparently his good buddy Snoop Dogg was not ready to let the Kobe "thank you" train end quite yet.
The rapper had a customized Lakers-themed car designed for the five-time NBA Champion. A lot of people are going to try to tell you that it's really cool. Let me perfectly clear about this: not only is it distinctly uncool, but I would go so far as to say that it's one of the ugliest cars I have ever laid eyes on. In the history of expensive automobiles purchased by celebrity athletes and rappers, this one has to take the prize for the one that is least likely to ever be driven anywhere in public.
Check out the purple and yellow (don't even try to tell me that's "gold") monstrosity for yourself:
Jesus. That looks like something that Jim Carrey would've driven in The Mask. It's straight out of a bad comic book. But wait, it gets so much worse.

Ok Snoop Dogg. I love you as much as the next guy, and I know this gift was given with love but absolutely everything is wrong with this. Even if we look beyond the fact that painting a bunch of dudes onto the hood of a muscle car is so damn cheesy, there is still a bigger issue at hand. The painting is entitled "Showtime" and depicts various great Lakers players surrounging a Larry O'Brien Trophy. Fair enough...except somehow Snoop Dogg, who has never played in an NBA game in his life let alone won a championship, is front and center and bigger than everyone else.
I'm sorry, did he win a ring when I wasn't looking?
How are you going to poach Kobe's accomplishments ON THE ACTUAL GIFT that is meant to celebrate them? Snoop's larger-than-life and in vibrant color. Meanwhile Kobe's in the back all small and looking like they forgot to finish shading him in. Come on now.
Regardless, it seems that Kobe and Snoop are still thick as thieves; despite the fact that his new car is an eyesore that can probably be seen from the Hubble Space Telescope
They should switch hats. It's definitely a stretch to call Kobe Bryant a kind of hero, but any person who can pretend to like a gift like that must be a true friend indeed.
