      I was watching the end of the Laker-Pacers game on NBA TV, and of course all the focus was on Kobe. They were down 4 with about 18 seconds left, and he hoists up a fall away contested 3 that actually went in, and he was smiling and laughing since he knew it was a ridiculous shot. Then George makes 2 foul shots and they’re down 3 with 10 seconds left, and Kobe takes an even more ridiculous 3 to tie and it’s an air ball. Lakers lose.

      So their season has now come down to the Kobe chucking farewell tour? (4-20 last night btw) Winning doesn’t matter any more? How do his teammates feel about that? How about Laker fans?

      What a gigantic clusterf—.

      You can take this or leave it, but I have it on good authority, jah Lil is going to sit out next year if and demand a trade if Philly doesn’t get a minimum of one star for him to play with. His FIRST choice is to play for the knicks..

      “Kobe, inarguably not the best player of his generation, announces his retirement three seasons too late.”

      “jah Lil is going to sit out next year if and demand a trade if Philly doesn’t get a minimum of one star for him to play with. His FIRST choice is to play for the knicks..
      Three comments on this — first, maybe he should actually accomplish something as a player before he starts demanding a trade and dictating his destination; second, sitting out a year and foregoing $5 million or so in salary might be an even dumber decision than driving 108 mph over the Ben Franklin Bridge like he did last month or punching a heckler and yelling, “We’ve got money you sorry ass n…….” and, third, since the typical Hinkie trade involves Philly acquiring a boatload of draft picks, and since the Knicks are not exactly drowning in desirable picks that they can trade, I think that the chances of his donning a Knicks uniform any time in the foreseeable future are pretty slim.
