Kobe Bryant clearly hasn’t always been the most politically correct athlete.
Although Bryant will go down in history as one of the best basketball players ever to lace ‘em up, his resume as a role model is questionable. Back in April of 2011, Bryant was caught on camera calling a referee by a homophobic slur. Them, of course there was that whole alleged rape, cheating on his...
Nearly two years ago, Kobe Bryant was fined $100,000 by the NBA for using a derogatory term for homosexuals when he became upset after receiving a technical foul. Kobe apologized after the incident and insisted his comment was not meant to offend the gay or lesbian community, and has since acknowledged that the outburst was inappropriate.
On Sunday, Kobe took a stand against a Twitter...
Who would have thought it eh? Kobe Bryant the pianist. Well, actually it’s not a surprise. Kobe was a well-learned individual before he left for the NBA at age 18ish. While it’s cool. It’s really not going to get him anywhere in life.
Thanks to TerezOwens for the video.
Kobe Bryant's shooting percentage has decreased each month since the start of the season.
STANDS BY HIS WORDS
Lakers star Kobe Bryant defended his comments that some interpreted as critical about teammate Dwight Howard, saying it's all a "manufactured conflict."
I’m feeling like Kobe Bryant today, uninspired! Last night Kobe, who is averaging 20.7 FGA per game attempted only 8 shots and aborted 7 of them. That means he missed 7 of 8 in case you’re trying to do the math. Reverse psychology! Not really. Anyway, while Kobe was busy day dreaming about Jason Kidd’s ex-wife, Antawn Jamison stepped up with 19/10/1 and 2 threes in 33 minutes...
Michael Jordan was asked to compare the careers of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.
We see great shots all the time from LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Carmelo Anthony--the stars of the NBA. We see some crazy trick shots from the Harlem Globetrotters and the guys from Dude Perfect.
How often do we see them from a high school girl's game though?
Anna Olson from Lewis-Palmer High School in Coloroda heaved this one up. It's almost...
Former L.A. Lakers head coach Mike Brown is one of the nicest guys in the NBA, however, that doesn’t always translate to much.
Appearing on ESPN radio with Colin Cowherd he shed some light on being fired and replaced by Mike D’Antoni.
Cowherd asked what his feelings were when released or fired and Brown responded with “I was shocked.”
Only a few games into the season one...

Another week, another bad break for the Lakers.
Despite a promising start to the week with a win in Brooklyn, the Lakers finished the week at just 2-2.
The Lakers endured a blowout loss in Boston, followed by a come-from-behind victory in Charlotte, then concluded the 2013 Grammy Trip with a discouraging loss in Miami.
Although the Lakers...
The Lakers finish the week with a record of 2-2. There was an impressive win over the Brooklyn Nets and a great 20 point comeback against the Charlotte Bobcats, but along with that came an old fashioned beat-down by the Boston Celtics and a fourth quarter meltdown that resulted in a loss to the Miami Heat. Here are this week’s top 3 and bottom 3 performers.

There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home…
After two weeks and seven games on the road, the Lakers returned to the comforts of Staples Center to face a Phoenix Suns team who recently rallied in the final minutes of their last contest to beat them in the end.
Looking determined to prevent the same ending, the Lakers got...
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dwight Howard had 19 points and 18 rebounds, Antawn Jamison added 19 points, and the Los Angeles Lakers survived Kobe Bryant's bizarre four-point performance for their eighth win in 11 games, 91-85 over the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night.
Michael Jordan still picks Kobe Bryant over LeBron James.
Jordan, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel, said he views the Lakers star guard as the more successful player to date when compared to the Miami Heat All-Star.
"If you had to pick between the two, that would be a tough choice," said Jordan, "but five beats one every time I look at...
