Let’s take a moment to laugh at the Lakers

Let’s take a moment to laugh at the Lakers

Danny Ainge and the Celtics didn’t exactly deliver on the fireworks promised by owner Wyc Grousbeck this summer, but at least we’re not the Lakers: What are the Lakers doing? Fewer contracts raised more eyebrows around the Las Vegas Summer League than this one. The Lakers continue to overvalue their own players. They seem determined [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Rajon Rondo’s an a-hole like Kobe Bryant

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline.

Kobe’s extension: Selfish money grab or a just reward?

Kobe’s extension: Selfish money grab or a just reward?

As John pointed out in the Dump, the Lakers have resigned Kobe Bryant to a two year, $48.5 million extension. Nearly $50 million for a 35-year-old guard coming off Achilles surgery. Say what? Some say Kobe deserves the money, as some sort of lifetime achievement award for all he’s done for the Lakers organization. Others [...]

MJ dismisses LeBron and disses Kobe

Gotta love Michael Jordan. It took him 5 seconds to verbally slap around LeBron James and Kobe Bryant: NBA legend Michael Jordan believes he could beat LeBron James in a one-on-one basketball game when he was in his prime. He’s not sure about Kobe Bryant. In a video promoting the NBA 2K14 video game that [...]

Saving the NBA and D-League by eliminating One and Done rule

Saving the NBA and D-League by eliminating One and Done rule

Lets all be honest here, its a fairly safe bet that most of us reading today have never watched a single NBA D-League game, nor do most NBA fans really care about the D-League.  Can you name more than three teams without the assistance of Wikipedia?

He put his hands up, got into his defender but because of the fact it’s Kobe Bryant, it’s an issue. If it was somebody else, we probably [...]
