And when he scores, you'll see him throw up the "X" symbol with his arms. What does it mean?

Bryant went on to say he's X-ing out "All of the bad, all of the negativity that ever approached me." "People don't understand me; they paint their own pictures of me.

The "X" has become so synonymous with Bryant that he's modeled his apparel business after his touchdown celebration.
