Gotye Parody – the Kobe that I Used to Know (Lakers)

Alright Los Angeles Lakers fans, this video is for you. It is a parody of the song, “Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye. Only this one is titled, “The Kobe That We Used to Know”. ¬†While Lakers fans have little to celebrate after their second round NBA playoff series loss the Thunder, they can at least have a laugh at how one Lakers fan took out his frustration in this funny parody. And…

There’s always next year.

"The Kobe That We Used To Know"

Now and then I think of when you were much younger.
You had a fro and said that Jordan should respect your game.
With Shaq you won rings 1, 2, 3,
But you didn't like his company.
You shipped him out and that's an ache we all remember.

You can get addicted to a certain kind of winning.
Like resignation to a 6th ring. Always that ring.
So when the triangle came to an end
Well you said that you would win again.
But you admitted you would carry the team on your shoulders.

But you didn't have to take that shot.
Just drive the lane and dump it off to either Pau or Bynum.
Those two guys are really tall
And when you keep it for yourself we never score enough.

You didn't have to hog the ball.
You're triple teamed so kick it out to either Blake or Sessions.
I know that they don't shoot so well,
But you're really not the Kobe that we used to know.

Now and then I think of all the shots right at the buzzer.
Always keeping me believing that it might go in.
But I don't want to lose that way.
Hoisting shots from very far away.
You said that you could share the ball,
And we wouldn't catch you clinging to the Kobe that we used to know.
