    9 Sports Commercial Stunts So Cool No One Cares If They’re Fake

    While athletes have the ability to amaze us on the field, the advent of viral videos allows many of those same athletes to blow us away just by screwing around. Be it during practice, outtakes during commercials or photo shoots, even when the pressure’s off and nothing’s at stake, the best of the best can […]

  • Kobe Bryant, ‘The Kloser’ (Video)

    Kobe Bryant, ‘The Kloser’ (Video)

    Vitamin Water has produced some quality commercials (see Steve Nash, David Ortiz, Brian Urlacher, and my favorite the one with David Wright and  ‘The Situation’). This one with Los Angeles Lakers star guard, Kobe Bryant, is no different — it makes me want to drink their product. Kobe has been coined ‘the kloser’ for his […]

    Marcus Jordan: Don’t Compare Kobe To My Dad

    With the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics battling it out in a tight Game 7 of the NBA Finals last night, ABC posted this graphic (above) comparing Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan’s success in the finals.  The graphic clearly shows that the edge belongs to MJ, but for those who didn’t quite get […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/15/10 — Pau Gasol

    The LA Lakers were down 3-2 going into the game last night.  Just one loss away from elimination and a disappointing end to the season.  After splitting the first two games in L.A., the Celtics had won 2 of 3 in Boston and put the Lakers on their heels.  With Kobe trying to do too […]

    Keep Your Boogers To Yourself Kobe! (Video)

    When the final buzzer sounded in Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics, Kobe Bryant had already scored 29 points in a 91-84 victory, but he still had one more shot, or should we say “snot”, left in his arsenal. Poor Ric Bucher!  I don’t think this […]

    Kobe Ignores Chris Rock, But Phil Jackson Doesn’t (Videos)

    Chris Rock was just one of the many celebrities present at the Staples Center last night for Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics.  However, he was not the only “Rock” sitting courtside.  At times throughout the game, another “Rock” could be seen sitting right next to […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/3/10 – Kobe Bryant

    The rumors of a decline in Kobe Bryant’s play were not just over exaggerated…they were stupid. The 2010 Kobe plays smarter, not necessarily harder. But when Kobe so desires, he can still take it to the rack with the best of them and score the ball. He did that last night in game 1 of […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/27/10 – Kobe Bryant

    The highlight of the night was actually made possible due to a Kobe Bryant miss. Ron Artest got an offensive rebound from The Black Mamba’s missed three-point attempt and laid it in for a buzzer-beating basket against the Phoenix Suns. But how did the Lakers get to that moment of victory? Kobe doing work. Kobe […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 5/23/10 — Amare Stoudemire

    Amare Stoudemire is considered one of the best big men in the game, but his lack of focus has been roundly criticized for most of his career.  Once in a while though, he silences the critics.  Even though his defense is sorely lacking at times, he can make up for it with an amazing ability […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/17/10 – Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant’s health has been called into question entering the Western Conference Finals in the NBA Playoffs.  It appears that the question has been answered: No problem.  Sporting a yellow knee brace in last night’s game, Bryant was able to play through the pain in a dominant performance that led his Lakers to a 128-107 […]

    Picture Of The Day: Kobe Is National Geographic’s Latest Cover Boy

    Kobe Bryant has become a household name in the sporting world, and it has therefore come as little surprise to see his face plastered all over magazines and television sets everywhere.  Even his very own MVPuppet has used his name to gain recognition across the country. So when the Los Angeles Times decided to put […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 5/4/10 — Kobe Bryant

    The Jazz are in all kinds of trouble in their Western Conference Playoff series with the Lakers.  Boozer and Millsap are playing as well as they can, but the Lakers big men just seem dominant.  The man that is getting to the basket at will, however, is a man the Jazz have never really been […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 2/23/10 – Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant has not played a basketball game since February 5th.  That’s 18 days ago.  After badly spraining his ankle before the All-Star break he was held out of play for 5 games on top of the All-Star game.  A guy who hasn’t played in that long is sure to be rusty, right?  Well Kobe […]

    Cavs Zydrunas Ilgauskas is a MVPuppet with Lebron (Video)

    You have Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, and Dwight Howard as the existing muppets in Nike’s muppet series of commercials.  Who’s the likeliest candidate to bring in to the mix next? Zydrunas Ilgauskas? Probably the least likeliest, but he’s indeed been entered into the cast of the Nike MVPuppets.  In this clip, Lebron appears to be […]
