Kobe Bryant's wife wants husband who wins championships every year

Kobe Bryant’s gold medal play at the London Olympics and the arrival of new teammate Dwight Howard have put reports of his divorce on the backburner. Wife, Vanessa, revealed that she won't settle for a loser for a husband in an interview for the current issue of New York Magazine, picked up by Pro Basketball Talk, Nicki Jhabvala and The Basketball Jones.

"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, then winning a championship should happen every single year.”That certainly comes off as… elitist. Which is a kind word for her reputation among some at Staples Center. That said, it kind of sounds like a less polished version of what Kobe Bryant would say.
