No Guts, No Glory:
You may have forgotten that back in December of 2011, the Lakers and Hornets all but had a deal in place that would have sent Chris Paul to the Lakers to team up with Kobe Bryant. That’s until the deal was vetoed by the NBA.
But with all the struggles the Lakers have had since then, you always knew that Kobe Bryant wouldn’t forget. Why? Because the NBA quite possibly may have snatched away chances of a couple more championships away from him. And last night, he admitted as much with a tweet of a picture of his daughter Natalia and Chris Paul’s son Little Chris playing together.
At least lil @cp3 and baby Mamba can play together NBA can’t veto this one Ha! twitter.com/kobebryant/sta…

Yesterday NBA TV was running an NBA Slam Dunk Contest marathon, which is pretty much porn for a sports degenerate like myself. They showed the 1988 MJ vs Dominique dunk contest directly after the 2000 Vinansity dunk contest. I have no doubt that these are the best two dunk contests ever. In 1988 Michael Jordan vs Dominique Wilkins was the most epic back and forth battle in slam dunk...
