Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
Kobe Bryant appeared on the Lakers bench Sunday night in the third quarter. The goal of course was to provide moral support to a team that was clearly being swept out of the first round of the playoffs and not to make a sartorial statement in Givenchy and crutches but somehow, he managed to do both.
Givenchy is the jock’s go to look of the moment. Last summer you saw LeBron James, JR Smith, Amaré Stoudemire and others in the “jaws” and “rottweiler” tees were spotted everywhere. Currently, it’s this paisley one from the 2013 spring line. In addition to Kobe Bryant rocking it, LeBron James wore it a few days ago and NBA free agent to be Dorell Wright was spotted out in Vegas wearing it this weekend.
Side note, I hate the word “sartorial” but it seems to be the go-to buzzword for athletes and fashion this season. Sometimes I’m trendy. :shrug:

Now James Miami Heat...

Video: Watches the Lakers go down in flames
EL SEGUNDO, CA Kobe Bryant rolled into the media workroom at the Lakers practice facility on a scooter, protecting his surgically repaired Achilles tendon.
Then, following his exit meeting, he proceeded to run over all of Dwight Howards critics; you know, the ones who say the team should cut ties with the games best big man and let him walk as a free agent.
Los Angeles is the...
When LeBron James finally captured his first NBA title, he had finally overcame all of the pressure that was heaped on him. If you remember, when the Heat found themselves down 3-2 in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics, speculation was running rampant about the changes that would be made if the Big [...]

Carmelo Anthony says he has been able to focus this year by completely tuning out newspapers and television and just playing the game.
It's a faux pas that many teams have made in the past, but for some odd reason it keeps happening time and time again. Prior to Game Four today, the fans arriving at the Staples Center-- in hopes of seeing their team avoid a sweep--were issued white towels.
Yes, they matched the white home uniforms the Lakers were going to be wearing, but white towels?
Can anyone say time...
The Lakers got the last thing they ever needed was Kobe Bryant going down. The second to last thing they needed was to lose Dwight Howard in an elimination game due to a second technical foul early in the second half.
It has been a rough season for Dwight Howard. Heck, its been a rough couple of years for the big man. From his inglorious departure from Orlando to his landing...
The Lakers cant end their season without an infamous Metta World Peace quote.

No one knows what Howard meant in that tweet. It could stand...

“I think it’s very noble on his part," James said. “I think it’s a strong thing to do, and I think as NBA players, we all offer him our support.”
Collins came out in a Sports Illustrated story...
Sunday night the L.A. Lakers were swept from the playoffs and went out with a thud. After already losing Kobe Bryant for the season and playing without Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Metta World Peace among others the Lakers hopes rested squarely on the shoulders of Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol.
Now I for one have not been a Howard supporter. I do believe he is very overrated and wouldn’t...
