They’re Kidding, Right?

Monday, June 9th, 2008

Game Two of the NBA Finals was by far the worst officiated game of basketball I've ever witnessed. And I've seen a lot of Duke games.The officials basically handed last night's game to the Celtics. Boston came out on top 108-102 after a furious comeback by the Lakers, but the ...

Buster Olney Is Insane

Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

I have stated time and again that I love the offseason in baseball. I love all the crazy rumors, I love laughing at the bonehead deals GMs offer in an attempt to save their hides and I love the wild fan speculation as to what their team is actually going ...

Wait, The Lakers Are 2-1?

Tuesday, November 6th, 2007

I've actually watched several games at the start of this NBA season. This is surprising because typically I'd rather shave my head with a riding mower than tune in to the NBA's regular season. But with all the drama surrounding my Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe, I figured I'd give ...

Kobe Is Sorry

That Ought To Shut Kobe Up

Well, I'm sure the Lakers most recent move will totally placate their temperamental star. Early this afternoon the Lakers came ...

Kobe Is Not Going Anywhere

Monday, June 18th, 2007

OK, so now we're on the third version of Kobe Bryant's frustration with the Lakers front office. Arguably the best player of his generation has gone from demanding a trade, to wanting to be a Laker for life, to wanting to be traded again. This past weekend Bryant met with ...

Can I Demand A Trade Too?

Friday, June 1st, 2007

As a Laker fan, these last few days have been interesting to say the least. Kobe demanding a trade, then then rescinding said demand pointed out what everyone already knew: the Laker front-office is as backasswards as any in professional sports. Seriously, Kupchak and company haven't taken a sure step ...

Kobe Has Bigger Fish To Fry Than Stu Jackson

Wednesday, March 14th, 2007

Kobe Bryant got assessed what the NBA calls a "flagrant 1" because of his elbow on Kyle Korver. No surprise there, he caught Korver in the neck whilst driving to the rim. Yet something seems amiss about this situation; something doesn't sit right.Maybe it's because the referees didn't assess him ...
