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

    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 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

    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 […]

  • Kobe and Brandi Prom Picture Selling on Craigslist

    Kobe and Brandi Prom Picture Selling on Craigslist

    There’s quality paraphernalia and there’s pointless pictures.  A picture of Kobe Bryant with his high school prom date, who just happens to be Brandi, definitely falls under the latter. Some guy in Philadelphia is selling an original prom picture of Kobe Bryant and Bryant’s date for a minimum of $3,000 on Craigslist, with the best offer […]

  • Reindeer Dunked On By The MVPuppets: LeBron, Kobe, Santa

    Reindeer Dunked On By The MVPuppets: LeBron, Kobe, Santa

    The Nike puppets of LeBron James and Kobe Bryant are sometimes funny, sometimes lame, and mostly just strange.  The recent “mystery of the missing shoe” one had a funny moment or two but kind of fell flat.  This new commercial/music video falls mostly into the strange category, but also will make you laugh a bit.  […]

  • Kobe and LeBron MVPuppet Shoe Mystery Solved (Video)

    Kobe and LeBron MVPuppet Shoe Mystery Solved (Video)

    People can’t seem to get enough of Nike’s Kobe-LeBron puppet commercials.  My favorite was definitely the one where LeBron is throwing chalk everywhere and screaming “Woo!” Even though the NBA hype machine failed us last season by not bringing everyone the Kobe-LeBron Finals we all wanted to see, apparently Nike thinks we are still enamored […]

    The Kobe and LeBron MVPuppets Are Back At It (Video)

    It may only be a few months into the season, but it is never too early to begin thinking about the prospects of a Kobe Bryant vs. LeBron James NBA Championship Finals.  And with that being said, Nike has already begun to hype up that possibility with yet another MVPuppets commercial, staring none other than […]

  • Kobe Bryant Hits A Shot From Behind The Backboard

    Kobe Bryant Hits A Shot From Behind The Backboard

    It is hard to believe that after all the acrobatic shots Kobe Bryant has made over the course of his career, he can still find ways to amaze us with his on-the-court antics. Last night at the Staples Center he was at it once again. How do you even defend this guy when he makes […]

  • Kobe Bryant Hits Amazing Circus Shot Against The Pistons

    Kobe Bryant Hits Amazing Circus Shot Against The Pistons

    We already gave him last night’s “Stat Line Of The Night” for helping the Los Angeles Lakers end a two-game losing skid, but apparently that was not enough.  After all, how can we refuse to acknowledge a circus shot like this one made by Kobe Bryant.  It may have accounted for only two of the […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 11/17/09 – Kobe Bryant

    The Stat Line of the Night – 11/17/09 – Kobe Bryant

    The Los Angeles Lakers went into last night’s game against the Detroit Pistons having lost two in a row.  Something that has not been common for the defending NBA champions.  Something even more uncommon for them is losing three games in a row.  In order to avoid having that happen they would need a big […]
