Lagniappe: Word of the Day “Belichicky”

In an interview, Kobe Bryant of the L.A. Lakers actually used the word “Belichicky” in a sentence.

From the Boston Herald,

“Bryant’s indirect – or, to be precise, incomplete – reference to Belichick came in response to a question about embattled former NBA referee Tim Donaghy, who alleged that officials have rigged past playoff games.

In his answer, Bryant proved he has watched plenty of Belichick press conferences on television, saying, “We don’t think about it too much. I’m sorry to be Belichicky, but we don’t think about it too much, to be honest with you. It’s not something we focus on any players. I think it’s more talked about outside of our circles more than it is inside.” “

It was actually pretty cool, especially with them playing the Celtics in the finals.

Now we need the formal definition. I’ll give it a try:

Belichicky – (Adjective) Used to describe a person that feigns or has a general ambivalence towards the opinions of others
