Hopefully Kobe knows who Jeremy Lin is now. After spending time between the Lakers’ win in Boston and last night’s 92-85 loss in NYC doing his best to try to say he had no clue who the NBA’s newest sensation was, Bryant got one-upped by the man who has now scored more points in his [...]

Five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant has never been shy about speaking his mind. So when the Lakers star posed for a picture with Rob Gronkowski after L.A.'s 88-87 overtime victory over the Celtics, he didn't hesitate to tell the Pats' tight end where he thinks he should play next, according to WEEI. "I said 'the Eagles need a tight end.' That's what I...
Paul is the hero of Friday's victory over the 76ers, but he's too nice of a guy to take credit for the Clippers' success.From Philadelphia — The last guy I'm going to write about is Chris Paul , because he's already had his story.

The night before, Kobe Bryant had laughed off a question about whether he would be called on to defend Jeremy Lin in New York. He had no idea what kind of game Lin played, and didn't understand the fuss about a player he could barely remember even playing against.

Sure, Lin doesn't have the physical skill or composition of a player like Chris Paul, Derrick Rose or any other point guard who will finds himself on an All-Star roster every year, but still, it's clear that Lin can handle himself on the basketball court. Anyone who watched him play...
