Kobe Bryant Doesn’t Think His Lakers Teammates Know Who Abraham Lincoln Is

Kobe Bryant’s 30,000 Career Points

Kobe Bryant scores improbable 4-point play against Thunder (Video)

Last night's Oklahoma City Thunder/Los Angeles Lakers game featured two four-point plays from Thunder guard Russell Westbrook and Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant.

Durant outduels Bryant in win over Lakers

OKLAHOMA CITY The pregame get-together was neither warm or with any feeling. That was obvious. Think pageant hug at center court, but with less emotion. No enthusiasm. Almost like it was mandatory. Then again, it's not like Kobe Bryant is going to embrace Kevin Durant or really much of anything Durant does these days. Yet here they were, a game after Bryant surpassed 30,000...

Kevin Durant: Kobe Bryant's an 'old fart'

Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant, who is now at 10,517 career points after scoring 36 in the Thunder's 114-108 victory over the Lakers Friday night, remembers growing up and watching Kobe Bryant dominate.  “I didn't really get to see a lot of Jordan in his prime,” said Durant, who then playfully took a jab at Bryant. “But seeing Kobe, I know he's an old fart.”...

Steve Nash could return for Lakers road-trip

Steve Nash is hoping to return to the Los Angeles Lakers lineup Tuesday in Cleveland.  However, coach Mike D'Antoni told Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times that, “I wouldn’t put my reputation on it. It’s possible." Nash has missed 18 games this season because of a small fracture in his fibula.  D'Antoni said Nash's attitude is more upbeat as he gets closer...

Dommermuth: Kobe Shouldn’t Be Mentioned in the Same Breath as Jordan

Kobe Bryant put himself in the type of company that only 4 other people can boast about when he scored his 30,000 career point earlier this week. Anytime a basketball player places himself amongst the likes of Wilt Chamberlain, Karl Malone, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Michael Jordan, he’s doing something inherently correct. The scoring feat has spurned much debate as [...]The...

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were tired of the smack talk from Kobe Bryant

According to Ric Bucher of CSN Bay Area, Oklahoma City Thunder players Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook wanted to prove Kobe Bryant wrong.  Apparently, during the 2012 Olympics in London, Kobe Bryant was constantly talking so much smack towards the two Thunder players.  Kobe was saying that Durant and Westbrook will not be able to get to the NBA Finals again after the Lakers...

Did Kobe Bryant try to pit Kevin Durant & Russell Westbrook against each other last summer?

Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant combined for their highest point total (69) of the season in the Thunders match up against the Lakers on Friday night. Now comes word that there was an additional motivation for those performances; Kobe Bryant’s Olympic smack talk. Allegedly last summer after the Lakers acquired Steve Nash and Dwight Howard, [...]

Lakers fall to to 9-12 as their defense becomes an issue

The Los Angeles Lakers have one heck of a starting lineup.  With such an All-Star lineup, you would expect them to have a loss column in the single-digits.  Except in this particular season, the Lakers have 12 losses piled up.  One thing is for sure, getting a new coach did not solve all their problems.  That move, however, did help rejuvenate the team in terms of a new style...

Familiar theme: Jazz run past slumping Lakers

LOS ANGELES -- When the Los Angeles Lakers lost four of five games to begin the season -- capped off by a defeat against the Utah Jazz in early November -- coach Mike Brown was fired days later. Maybe new coach Mike D'Antoni should watch out. The Jazz sent the Lakers to their fourth loss in five games -- again -- with a 117-110 win at Staples Center on Sunday night. Facing...
