Vanessa Bryant Wouldn’t Marry Someone Who Can’t Win Rings – Sparks Twitter Debate
Vanessa Bryant, the wife of five-time championship winning Los Angeles Lakers’ guard Kobe Bryant, is reportedly admitting that she would not marry an athlete that could not win championships, and said that she expects one to be in her home every year.
According to Nicki Jhabvala of Sports on Earth (via The Basketball Jones), Vanessa recently spoke to New York Magazine about championships equating happiness in her marriage. Although the interview has yet to be published, a portion of Bryant’s alleged statements have been circulating the internet.
“I certainly would not want to be married to somebody that can’t win championships,” Vannesa reportedly said. “If you’re sacrificing time away from my family and myself for the benefit of winning championships, then winning a championship should happen every single year.”
While Vanessa’s comments made their way to the debate desk on ESPN’s popular show “First Take” many people took the conversation to Twitter.
One person questioned why love was not a factor in Bryant’s statements.
“Vanessa Bryant says she wouldn’t want to be married to someone who didn’t win championships,” the person tweeted. “Does it matter if u really love dude??
Other people accused the woman of being a gold digger.
“Vanessa Bryant with the biggest ‘gold digger’ statement of the decade,” another person tweeted.
