The 2013-2014 rookie class was interviewed at the Rookie Transition Program on a variety of subjects including who their favorite player is. It appears the age of Kobe Bryant continues and that LeBron James has not yet become the icon of a generation. After James won in 2012 the Black Mamba made a comeback this year.
1: Kobe Bryant L.A. Lakers -- 21.2 percent
2: LeBron James Miami -- 15.2 percent
T-3rd: Kevin Durant Oklahoma City & Dirk Nowitzki Dallas -- 12.1 percent
T-5th: Kevin Garnett Brooklyn & Chris Paul L.A. Clippers -- 9.1 percent
Others receiving votes: Carmelo Anthony New York; Vince Carter Dallas; Tim Duncan San Antonio; James Harden Houston; Kawhi Leonard San Antonio; Steve Nash L.A. Lakers; Dwyane Wade Miami
Worth noting: LeBron won his second straight championship but couldn't retain his spot as the rookies' favorite player. As Kobe nears the end of his career he still gets love from the kids.

BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Kobe Bryant is back on the court; the NBA 2K14 court, this is.
In this new clip from Ronnie2K’s Instagram page, we get to see Kobe and the Lakers take on the Phoenix Suns. Off the dribble, Kobe fakes a pass and then raises up above Eric Bledsoe for the jumpshot. Of course, Bryant makes the shot – the 2K series is the most realistic basketball game out there, after all.
Earlier this week, Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant decided to take a trip to the headquarters of the social networking site, Twitter.
While there, Kobe got challenged to a game of Super Shot Arcade Basketball and despite being Kobe Bryant, he lost by the score of 89-87.
For the visual proof, you can check out the below Vine videos:

These days, it seems that almost everyone is shooting their own short videos on either Vine/Instagram and it appears that Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant is considering joining the club.
Yesterday, Kobe sent out this tweet telling his nation of fans that he might join Vine:
I think I may open up a vine #vinovine

As you might figure...
The full, official NBA 2K14 trailer has just been released. Of course, the Los Angeles Lakers feature in the trailer – Kobe Bryant’s jumper closes out the clip – and overall, as always, the game looks sick.
Dwight Howard is featured in the trailer quite a bit; he’s shown rejecting shots and throwing down big dunks while playing for his new team, the Houston Rockets. However...
LeBron James is a two-time NBA champion. His collection of two NBA rings will soon be added to with a wedding ring next month. The self-proclaimed king posted a picture [...]
LeBron James is not only the king of the NBA, but he’s the king of Nike.
The folks at Nike have officially unveiled the new LeBron 11, and they are hot.
Built from the inside out, the LEBRON 11 is the lightest and lowest LeBron signature shoe ever. It weighs approximately 14.5 oz in a men’s size 9.
The upper is built in a new way, featuring revolutionary Nike Hyperposite technology...
The people have spoken.
According to a Lakerholicz.com poll, the readers of this website don’t like the idea of the Lakers wearing short-sleeved jerseys next season. 83% of those who voted didn’t like the concept, while 13% said they liked the idea and 5% weren’t sure.
Last week, the news broke that the Lakers would be wearing short-sleeved jerseys at select games next season...
COUNT THE DAYS
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we featured some clips from NBA 2K14 starring LeBron James and today, the fine folks over at 2K Sports have released the official trailer for the game. The clips are from the Playstation 3 and the XBOX 360 versions of the game and some notable moments include Kent Bazemore celebrating on the Warriors bench, Kevin Garnett in a Nets jersey, and...
Let’s be honest, life is pretty good to be LeBron James and currently, he is overseas with some of his close personal friends in Switzerland.
Check out this photo that LBJ posted to his Instagram account of him with Maverick Carter and Rich Paul:
With all the controversy surrounding reigning Heisman winner Johnny Manziel and the autograph scandal that’s been following him around this summer, somebody thought it would be a good idea to spoof LeBron James’ infamous “Rise” commercial with the Texas A&M quarterback.
What should Johnny Football do? Well, I think we all know that Johnny Football does whatever it is...
This is brilliant. Think Squared Media has done a parody of the famous LeBron James Nike commercial “Rise.” They decided to ask: What Should I Do?
The real Johnny Football should keep living it up and making Texas A&M money. Great work here.
Each year when the NBA’s new crop of drafted rookies gather for the off-season photo-shoot during the summer, NBA.com surveys the group to get their thoughts on the league’s current players, as well as predictions for the future of that year’s draft class.
The rookies were asked to vote on several topics, with the biggest one being who all 36 thought was their favorite player...
Oh, this will be the funniest college football video you'll see today.
Check out this Johnny Manziel/Johnny Football spoof video produced by thinksquaredmedia.com. It's a riff on the LeBron James "What should I do?" commercial from a couple of years ago.
And yes, it pokes fun at pretty much everything that the Texas A&M quarterback...
The official full-length trailer for NBA 2K14 has hit the web today and it features a fitting soundtrack, ”Hate Me Now” by Nas, for the game’s cover athlete, LeBron James. The trailer also features some new animations and old faces in new places – including a first look at digital Dwight Howard in Houston, Al Jefferson in Charlotte, and Kevin Garnett in Brooklyn.
LeBron James is considered by many to be the best player in the NBA today. However, Stephon Marbury doesn’t think that’s the case.
During Kobe Bryant’s recent tour of Asia, the Black Mamba caught up with Marbury at a promotional event. Marbury later went on to tell the cameras that he considered Kobe as the best player in the NBA – not LeBron James. His reasoning? Marbury...
