    It’s not particularly unusual for athletes to switch numbers during the course of their career. But these switches usually involve switching teams, and even then superstars usually keep their numbers. That’s what makes the case of Kobe Bryant so unusual.

    Not the ideal way the 5-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant would like to go out, but this is what he got. Not only is he playing on the worst Los Angeles Lakers team of all-time via their record, but the Golden State Warriors have bumped his final game from ESPN to ESPN2. Memphis at Golden […]

    A lot of people always viewed LeBron James as the heir apparent to Kobe Bryant. And this makes sense when you look at the facts. For the first five years of LeBron’s NBA career, Kobe was arguably the best player in the NBA. In fact, Kobe won the MVP award in LeBron’s fifth season, after […]

    ‘Unimpressed Kobe’: Video Kickstarts a New Meme

    Kobe Bryant isn’t necessarily a stoic guy. He can get fired up, although it normally takes him doing something, and not responding to others—unless it’s a Dirk Nowitzki game-winner against his own team. But Kobe’s current Lakers squad is so goofy and excitable that he’s holding down the other end of the spectrum these days, getting […]
