You know the thing that Kobe does, that thing where he won’t pass the ball no matter how many bodies are covering him? Well, apparently he can’t help it. It’s a problem. From ESPN LA: “Kobe will tell you,” Jamison said. “He’s like, ‘Look, you guys as my teammates, yell at me. Let me know that you’re open because I’m so programmed,’ and this guy has told me this...
The Lakers will never be the same now that team owner Jerry Buss passed away this season.

The Los Angeles Lakers center cut open a vein (and talked about cutting other things, specifically farts) during a recent interview on Miami’s 790 The Ticket, discussing a multitude of topics, including the perceived acrimonious and strained...
Kobe Bryant sat out with a swollen ankle as his team played the Phoenix Suns this past Monday.Kobe is obviously frustrated that he can’t play right now, but on a good note, Kobe looked real stylish on that bench, I loved the ‘mismatched suit’ which I like to call it, great combination of hues as Kobe paired a smooth grey suit jacket with marine blue trousers, a white spread...
33 in a row?
The Los Angeles Lakers won 33 games in a row in the 1971-72 season. They also beat the New York Knicks for the NBA championship in five games.
