I’m not one to condone violence, but what the hell, we’re all adults here!
Roy Hibbert’s little scuffle with David Lee, earlier this week, sent me on a hour-long YouTube bender pulling up some of the greatest NBA fights of all time. When brainstorming #ThrowbackThursday ideas, I immediately thought Malice in the Palace. That fight was so major, folks thought it would be the demise of The Association. But then I stumbled upon the always satisfying classic low res footage of Chris Childs serving Kobe Bryant the ultimate two piece and a biscuit, and knew this was it.
This video reminds me of Jay’s line in Ignorant Sh*t, “…the tough guy disappears, then the ***** come out.” Because regardless of whether you believe Childs truly caught Bryant, we can ALL agree that elbow Kobe threw was weak sauce. As far as reps go, Kobe will live on as one of the greatest NBA players of all time. And Childs will live on as the dude who two pieced one of the greatest NBA players of all time. You do the math.

BEST OF MAXIM
AP.9 is best known for taking some Twodel style pictures with Ice T’s wife CoCo. Once he saw how that got him a little bit of attention, he has starting attention whoring to the highest degree of attention whoring.
I was trying to take him seriously, but then he started talking about taking 12 bullets and I started to tune him out. With that being said, he suggests he had an affair...
While LeBron and DWade were busy posting fun stuff to their Twitter account like The Heat’s Harlem Shake video – FUNNY, make sure you watch that even if you hate every other video you’ve seen of it. Kobe Bryant was announcing he’d required a new nickname, Vino. But he’s not giving you the meaning behind it. You have to figure out a brain teaser in order to understand the...
Kobe Bryant had just finished one of his most efficient games this season when his upbeat interview session with reporters stalled.
Someone asked him what the Lakers needed do to improve. He offered an important two-word response: "Transition defense."
That was Sunday. The Lakers got buried a day later in fastbreak points by the Denver Nuggets, 33-3, in a 119-108 loss...
One day, it is Dwight Howard‘s shoulder. The next day, it is Kobe Bryant‘s excessive shooting, or his excessive passing. The day after that, it is the Lakers’ shaky transition defense.
Game after game, the great mystery that is this Lakers team receives a new explanation. When they win, it is evidence that they should be better. When they lose, it is proof that they are as...
Following the Lakers’ win over the Timberwolves on Thursday night, Kobe Bryant had something to say about his teammate.
Kobe’s killer quote of the night was likening Antawn Jamison to “a cockroach”: “He keeps finding the cracks.”

Pretty spot on, seeing that cockroaches can live forever and live through hell.
Kobe Bryant played an undeniably magnificent game in Dallas against the Mavericks on Sunday morning, putting up 38 points on 13 of 21 shooting, including 4 of 5 made field goal attempts from beyond the three-point line. Kobe also pulled down a season high 12 rebounds, equaling his February 1st total in Minnesota against the [...]
SHINY HAPPY PEOPLE
While the season has not gone as planned, both Steve Nash and Dwight Howard -- and even Kobe, in a way -- said that the run for a postseason berth could be fun.
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Kobe Bryant scored 33 points and Antawn Jamison added 17 in the Los Angeles Lakers' 21st consecutive victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves, 116-94 on Thursday night.
Bryant and Jodie Meeks each hit four of Los Angeles' 16 3-pointers, and Meeks finished with 16 points. The Lakers (29-30) have won 12 of 17 and five of seven while moving within two games...
Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Steph Curry. All have dominated at the Mecca of basketball, Madison Square Garden. Above is a video of all 11 three pointers that Steph hit on his way to 54 points. Last night was a plethora of great performances and as a Laker fan on reddit highlighted:
Stephen Curry - 54 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds , (11/13 from 3pt land)
With a win last night, the Los Angeles Lakers have pulled within two games of the Houston Rockets for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Lakers are 4-1 since the All-Star break and 11-5 in their last 16. Kobe Bryant guaranteed the team would reach the postseason and Steve Nash is starting to really adapt to the Lakers’ role that went from juggernaut...
Mark Cuban thought he was pretty funny over the weekend, when he suggested that the Lakers should amnesty Kobe Bryant in the off-season to take his $30 million salary off their books.
The NBA didn’t find it funny, and CBSSports.com is reporting that the league is investigating those comments.
The NBA is debating whether to fine Cuban for saying Friday that the Lakers should consider...
Mired in a disappointing season, the Los Angeles Lakers have been resurgent of late. But they've still showed they have a thin margin for error, particularly with turnovers and free-throw shooting.
That margin may be a little wider than usual Thursday night when they try to extend their run of 20 straight wins over the struggling Minnesota Timberwolves - the longest active streak...
