As much respect to Kobe, that logo idea by Kyrie is absurd. If anyone should be the logo, it should be the jumpman Jordan logo. Also did not like the Black Kings built this league nonsense. This is the kind of racist rhetoric that needs to go away


His heart is in the right place but Kyrie isn't much of a thinker (i.e. the earth is flat). Bringing this kind of attention to Kobe's memory can do more harm than good. He really should keep his mouth shut if he thinks basketball started when he remembered seeing it for the first time. There are many special players who have played over the history of the NBA.

Bill Russell has more claim to that honor than anyone.


And Bill Russell is still alive.

So is MJ. Whose jumpman logo is an entity in of itself that defines basketball regardless of being the leagues national logo.

It should be Kobe. That's my take, and I agree with Kyrie. Whatever his reasoning, I agree with the sentiment.

I will always defend the honor of Kobe Bean Bryant.

That is all.

In the middle of the mad scramble I see Kobean. I call him “Kobean” or “Bean” cause his dad is Jellybean. Bean knows what I was going through. I’d been chasing him, been chasing Shaq, been chasing Timmy, been chasing all the legacies, and now the moment is mine. “Congratulations, man,” says Bean. “Enjoy this, cause there ain’t gonna be too many more. I’ll see yo b—h ass next year.” I have to get in my blows, have to say: “We activated now. This ain’t that Minnesota s–t.” “We’ll see.” “Say hi to Vanessa and the kids,” I say. “Love you, my brotha.” “Love you too, dawg.” – via Kevin Garnett @ Bleacher Report

A Kobe Bryant rookie card sold for $1.795 million late Saturday on Goldin Auctions, an online auction house and repository for sports memorabilia, making it one of the most expensive basketball cards ever sold.

The "1996-97 Topps Chrome Refractors #138 Kobe Bryant Rookie Card -- BGS PRISTINE/Black Label 10" is just one of two in the world "at its level of perfection," according to Goldin Auctions.

The card's condition report had perfect 10s across the board, qualifying it for the prestigious "black label" recognition.

Karma sucks for horrible human beings. These guys should have gotten as far away from LA as humanly possibly upon being discovered for their sick deeds. And needless to say, as with all criminal cops, they should have been fired immediately for this kind of depraved crap. I hope Vanessa wrecks them in court and on the court of public opinion.

**** those guys. They should be entitled to as much respect and privacy as they afforded the victims and their families when they took and posted pictures of the deceased - none.

Saw videos of Vanessa and Natalia getting some tats to commemorate Kobe and Gianna. Man still seems crazy. That family is so strong. It brings joy and pain watching them move on and navigate through this challenge without them.

This Julius Randle story about Kobe Bryant is going viral

Quote:
When Randle was fresh out of the University of Kentucky, Bryant emphasized the importance of getting shots up above all else when you arrive in a new NBA city. It did not matter how tired you may have been getting off the plane, it was all about putting in the work to get better. Randle took this to heart and has his Knicks teammates buying into this philosophy in his breakout season.


Quote:
In a year since Bryant's tragic passing, his legacy lives on in ways that continue to inspire us all.

After learning from Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, Jordan Clarkson thriving as Jazz sixth man

Quote:
“I remember him just really getting upset,” Clarkson said. “You’ve seen him come out of his skin and grill us a little bit. But from that point on, I felt all of us had a different look at everything with what we wanted to do. That’s probably, in terms of development, a little wake-up call.”

Clarkson described playing with Bryant as a “blessing” because he provided honest criticism, consistent work habits and willingly shared tips. They stayed close enough that Clarkson worked out at Bryant’s training academy last year shortly before his passing. The Lakers liked Clarkson enough with his play and how he accepted a reserve role following his first two seasons to grant him a four-year, $50 million extension. So much that former Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson often predicted Clarkson would win the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year. But through the following three years, the Lakers broke up their young roster to create enough cap space to sign James as a free agent.
