Bill Belichick and Kobe Bryant are birds of a feather

Talk about an odd couple. Bill Belichick and Kobe Bryant both have championship pedigrees, and they share a lot of the similar experiences. However, they don’t seem like the pair to strike a conversation, but the pain of losing is universal.  Belichick approached him near the end of their Game 6 loss (a 131-92 loss) at the hands of the Celtics in the 2008 NBA Finals. “I’m...

Same time next year for New England Patriots

The 2012 season came to a shocking end for the New England Patriots with the loss in the AFC Championship game at home to the Baltimore Ravens.

How Kobe Bryant & Bill Belichick ended up Friends

  Just going off of personalities, it would be easy to conclude that Lakers guard Kobe Bryant and New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick would have little in-common.
