Why doesn’t Kobe just pay for the parade?

Why doesn’t Kobe just pay for the parade?

California's finances are a complete mess.  Everyone everywhere is broke.  So there was some concern about having enough money to cover the costs of a Lakers championship parade.  But private donors have stepped in. LOS ANGELES — An aide to City Council president Eric Garcetti says private donors have agreed to cover all of the [...]

Congrats to LA

Congrats to LA

Congrats to Kobe, Pau and company. Bryant's performance and hunger reminded me of Lisa Leslie's first WNBA championship with the LA Sparks. We'll be taking the trophy back next season. I couldn't stomach the last few minutes of this game, but I gotta know one thing; did Kobe fake cry during the post game interview? [...]

Sometimes players just miss… even Kobe

Sometimes players just miss… even Kobe

I know this might come off as a defense of Kobe Bryant… and I guess it sort of is in a way.  But one thing that I can't stand even more than Kobe is the knee-jerk reaction to something like the game he had last night. Take, for example, Bill Plaschke… who writes this today: [...]

Gortat gets more awesome by the day

Gortat gets more awesome by the day

I've made no secret about it… I want Marcin Gortat on the Celtics.  Don't get me wrong… I'm not pretending that he's going to come here and give us 20 and 10.  He's a good back up that can give us some quality minutes.  But the legend of Marcin Gortat continues to grow.  The latest [...]

Maybe the Lakers winning is a good thing

Maybe the Lakers winning is a good thing

Maybe I'm romanticizing the past a little bit.  But to me, basketball was at its absolute peak in the 80's.  The play was great.  There were so many great players and good teams.  We had classic individual performances (71 points by David Robinson), classic All Star weekend performances (Bird's "who's finishing 2nd three-point contest win, [...]

THE shirt for Orlando Magic fans!

THE shirt for Orlando Magic fans!

    We made a little tweak to our normal "Losers" shirt to take a shot at Kobe.  You can get this shirt in our store right now… and still have it in time to wear for a home game against LA.  We have this design on other shirts as well (for men and women)… so [...]

Blueprint for beating Kobe and the Lakers

Blueprint for beating Kobe and the Lakers

Chuck and I were swilling beers last night and talking hoops and just marveling at Kobe Bryant's 3rd quarter in Game 1 of the Finals.  Simply put, no matter how much we hate that guy, he put on an amazing show.  The Lakers looked unbeatable.  But… they're not. First, the Lakers have a horrible habit [...]

Rondo in China, not on trading block

Rondo in China, not on trading block

Holy crap did this ridiculous Ray Allen/Rajon Rondo trade rumor have legs.  I mean… we threw it up there as a "ha ha… you asked for rumors and this dumb one surfaced" type of thing.  But it just kept making the rounds.  People pulled quotes that appeared next to neanderthal cave paintings to use as [...]

Et tu, Larry?

Et tu, Larry?

You know, I'm having a hard enough time coping with Kobe Bryant's seemingly eventual championship (and the onslaught of Laker trolls that will hit this site)… the last thing I needed was to hear Larry Bird's current favorite player is a Laker. Johnson: Larry Bird told me that Kobe Bryant is his favorite player. How [...]
