Tweet The Black Mamba may be 34 years old, but when it comes down to crunch-time of a game, he’s still going to deliver. Kobe Bryant and the Lakers were in a tight contest in the fourth quarter with the Hawks, down 94-93, when Kobe drove down the lane and hammered down this monster jam [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
Kobe AKA Black Mamba AKA Vino is showing that age is just a number as far as he’s concerned. Check out this dunk on Hawks Josh Smith from the Lakers win on Sunday.
That actually looked like #8 fro Kobe. The Lakers are now at .500 with about 6 weeks left until the playoffs
During a recent special on NBA TV, Michael Jordan was asked who is the best player is in the game today, Kobe Bryant or LeBron James?
The six-time NBA champion and five-time league MVP's gives a bit of a mixed signal with his answer, but ultimately chooses Bryant because of his five titles.
Kobe Bryant got the Lakers back to a .500 record (30-30) after a 34 point night that included the go-ahead layup with nine seconds left. Apparently the Black Mamba is also a big Entourage fan as he celebrated Los Angeles’ win by high-fiving with Entourage star, Jeremy Piven (Air Gold).
Kobe Bryant is in his 17th season in the NBA. Many expected the superstar to finally start showing his age this season and begin to slow down, but by all accounts that has not been the case. Shooting a career high in FG%, the Black Mamba is showing us that he still has plent left [...]
The Big Leagues The Lakers guard posterizes Josh Smith, then hits game-winner for good measure.
Kobe Bryant scored 11 of his 34 points in the fourth quarter and hit the go-ahead layup with 9 seconds left, leading the Los Angeles Lakers back to .500 for the first time in more than two months with a 99-98 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night.

Although Kobe Bryant has coined his own nicknames before, his latest self-created moniker seemed particularly appropriate after an intoxicating performance against Atlanta.
Kobe called himself Vino, and the Los Angeles Lakers are savoring this particular vintage.

Leave it to the venom-spitting Black Mamba to put the Serge Ibaka-Blake Griffin incident into proper perspective.
When asked about Ibaka’s chop to Griffin’s groin Sunday during the Thunder-Clippers game, Bryant told reporters Monday how he would have reacted.
“I probably would have smacked him in the mouth,” Bryant said of Ibaka, via Mark Medina of the LA Daily News.
PHOENIX Friday night provided a strong dose of evidence that a couple of those NBA trade-deadline reports supplied by national media sharpies were accurate.
Josh Smith really did help the Phoenix Suns finish the season on a roll that may prevent them from landing an extremely early pick in the 2013 draft.
By the way, Smith remains employed by the Atlanta Hawks, who lost 92-87...
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Kobe Bryant scored 11 of his 34 points in the fourth quarter and hit the go-ahead layup with 9 seconds left, leading the Los Angeles Lakers back to .500 for the first time in more than two months with a 99-98 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night.

The baseball world has been taken back by the use of analytics, which introduced an entirely new way to look at the game. The basketball world has begun to catch on, following innovation from guys like John Hollinger.
Kobe Bryant and the Lakers probably aren’t very interested in analytics.credit: thewifehatessports.com
In Boston over the past few days, basketball geeks from around...
I have to start this post by saying, good job by Kobe to getting by Al Horford for an easy two.
Now I can break down everything the Hawks did wrong here. First off, why don't teams double players like Kobe or Lebron and make someone else beat you? I never understand that. Secondly, that was a terrible job of Josh Smith fighting through the pick by Dwight allowing the Lakers...
