Found February 13, 2013 on hecmanhoops:
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. Can Antawn keep this up? Meh, naw, but with Earl Clark hurting and Pau Gasol in Spain for the next 6 weeks (or longer!), I’d stream Antawn on Thursday night without hesitation. Oh, and as for Kobe, trade his ass, he’s terrible! Here’s what else I saw in fantasy basketball last night: Corey Brewer – 9/0/1 with a three in 28 minutes. I saw Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler and Andre Iguodala were all sidelined for last night’s game so I practically ran over my wife getting to the computer to add a nice cheap Corey Brewer onto my Daily Fantasy Basketball teams. Burp. Hey, speaking of daily fantasy basketball, pla...

Kobe Bryant Admonishes Fan on Twitter for Using ‘Gay’ as Insult

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...

On Sunday, Kobe took a stand against a Twitter...

Kobe Bryant is Also an Accomplished Pianist

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.

Michael Jordan says Kobe Bryant gets the edge over LeBron James because of rings

Once again when asked the question, LeBron James or Kobe Bryant, Michael has answered in favor of Kobe. Granted, Michael’s judgement has been questionable lately; those wide leg jeans are a violation that’s extremely hard to move past. His assertion that 5 rings beats 1 is not only truthful but intriguing. “If you had to pick between the two, that would be a tough choice...
