Vanessa Bryant: Kobe Bryant BetterWin Championships

It’s not quite likeit sounds. sat down for . : she has expectations for her husband, . He better be winning championships. But it’s not quite like that. Here’s what she said:

“I certainly would not want to be married to somebody that can’t win championships. If you’re sacrificing time away from my family and myself for the benefit of winning championships,” she says, “then winning a championship should happen every single year.”

Okay, so that’s not as bad as it first sounded, right? Vanessa’s not saying Kobe has to be a championship player as a condition of staying married (although she’s put up with more than enough). Vanessa herself :

“I’m sad to hear that comments in my New York  Magazine interview are being misconstrued and taken out of context. I have and will continue to support my husband’s dreams. I have been with Kobe for 13 years. I accepted his marriage proposal PRIOR to him winning any of his 5 championships with his teammates. For anyone to think otherwise is wrong. It is not about being married to a ‘winner’ it is about our sacrifice as a family.”

I think Vanessa’s meaning was pretty clear for anyone who took the time to read the entire quote, don’t you think?
