2. Kobe Bryant
Well, he’s tall — that should already intimidate people, no? Looking at the bigger picture, there’s a good understanding why people would fear Kobe Bryant. The former basketball player, who retired earlier this year, was a complete beast when it came to his profession; for almost a decade, it was hard to find a baller who was playing just as good as Kobe. Bryant was always focused on winning, but the media’s fascination concerning his personal life somewhat shattered that impression people had of him. Endless cheating allegations came forward; Kobe had supposedly had an affair with dozens of women behind his wife’s back. He was said to have been pleading with Vanessa Bryant for forgiveness for weeks on end — presumably because him and his wife didn’t sign a prenuptial agreement when they married, meaning she can take half of his fortune. Not so tough now, eh?
