Kobe Bryant won't let the past go and is still mad at the Charlotte Hornets for trading him on draft night 18 years ago.
Nick Young is working on his defense in hope of commanding more money this off-season. He's doing that by shutting kids down in games of one-on-one.
In case you missed the big news today, Kobe Bryant signed a two-year extension with the L.A. Lakers worth a whopping $48.5 million. That's right, the 35-year old Kobe Bryant who tore his Achilles less than a year ago, and is yet to play a game since doing it, just signed a contract that will make him the highest paid player in the NBA for two more years.
When it rains, it pours. And there's a big 'ol flood in the Mamba household right now.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting patiently for Kobe to respond to his ESPN Forecast #NBARank of 25 for the coming season. I don’t necessarily agree that he’ll be the 25th best player in our beloved association this year, but I just want to see him tweet something along the lines of, “Message Received. Mamba out. #challengeaccepted.”
