Bryant Settles Lawsuit Filed by Rape Accuser: for an unknown amount. The settlement bars Bryant and Katelyn Faber from discussing it, but The Smoking Gun's transcript of his initial police interview provides his uncensored version of their sexual encounter. "When I asked if I could [non-procreative sex act], she said no," Bryant told police after originally lying to them that no sex took place. "I stopped. ... She was like, um, can I have a couple autographs?"

Wow those transcripts were interesting, I hope they're legit.

i prefer the raw version. So does Kobe, apparently. I lost my nerve for the actual quote. SportsFilter headlines go out on RSS and might be picked up by some general-interest sites. Also, I was afraid of what kind of Google ads it would attract.

So....... Can we guess $5 million? Didn't I hear that this amount was turned down? So could it be more? Dare I say $7-10 million? I think in principle it should be equal/greater than the cost of his wife's ring. Something in universe just suggests it.

If he would have had the settlement negotiations on pay-per-view or some other TV deal he could have paid it off with that money...what a dumbass. (I'm only joking of course, about the TV deal part...not the dumbass part).

"That is not to say that they won't be besmirched," Robinson added, "but it will be by talk show hosts and on blog sites and not by anyone who actually knows anything." Ouch!

Boy I didn't realize that it wasn't mandatory to grasp the English language to be a Detective.. What the hell was that?

I lost track of his lies after the first couple of pages. I liked these bits, though: Detective Loyola: I don't want you to demonstrate. ... Detective Winter: Did you ever make the allegation that you like Vail Colorado while you were having sex with her?

My favorite parts: 1) When a detective described Faber as an attractive young lady, and Bryant immediately interjected, "She wasn't that attractive." 2) When Bryant offered a witness who could vouch for his favorite sex practice: his regular mistress, Michelle. Reading the transcript, as I did in full because I couldn't help myself, you get the impression that the guy has no game at all in the bedroom. Five minutes of foreplay and oral sex, and he's asking to spread man ranch on her face? Smooth. On a tangent, I attended the Magic-Heat game last weekend in Orlando, and because we were early, we went to see athletes drive in. Shaq arrived in a black SUV, and when he didn't come over to greet fans, the angriest person was a young black woman in an undersized top who acted as if she knew the guy. I took her for a head case, but when Shaq's driver drove off in the SUV, he stopped, rolled down the passenger window, and spoke briefly to the woman and her friends. "He better fuckin' call me!" she yelled, then stomped around for around 10 minutes. I am skeptical that she was hooking up with Shaq (Kobe has accused him of being a horndog), but only because I would expect him to pull much more attractive women.

As the Meatmen put it so poignantly, how I long to frost your face with my manhood. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I guess.
