I’m Trying to Stop Hating, But Kobe Makes It So Easy

I’m Trying to Stop Hating, But Kobe Makes It So Easy

Via Deadspin: Kobe Bryant thinks he's bigger than the mayor of Los Angeles. And you know what? He's right. Divas don't share the spotlight with anyone. L.A. somehow scraped together enough cash for a victory parade this week, but it started an hour late. Whence the delay? A catfight between Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (best known [...]

The most ridiculous item in NBA store history?

The most ridiculous item in NBA store history?

Is this an "only in LA" kind [...]

Best proof yet that Kobe is all about Kobe

Best proof yet that Kobe is all about Kobe

Coach K Coming to LA?

Coach K Coming to LA?

From some dude named Woelful at the Journal Times (Wisconsin): At least one well-informed NBA informant insists that Lakers coach Phil Jackson will hang up the clipboard this summer and his successor could be Duke's Mike Krzyewski — especially if his highly-influential agen (Kobe Bryant) puts the heat on Lakers management. Wouldn't this be fun? [...]

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.
