(Video) NBA: Kobe Got Dunked On, Came Right Back With Game Clinching Shot, Adds Finger Wag For Good Measure

IFWT_Kobe


The Lakers surprisingly looked pretty decent last night. I realize it was against the lowly Pelicans but still! Kobe in particular looked good as he dropped 27 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. Late in the game however, he had to be reminded he doesn’t have the hops he used to, as Ryan Anderson threw down the hammer on him. In classic Kobe style though, he came right back down the court and buried the game clinching three point shot and threw in a Dikembe Mutombo style finger wag.

NBA: Report, Lakers Open To Basically Trading Everyone Except Kobe

IFWT_Lakers


It is safe to say this is another year to forget for the Lakers and their fans. The only saving grace at all is every game is important simply because it is Kobe’s last hurrah. Other than that, nobody would be showing up at Staples Center and damn sure nobody would show up for their away games. The front office clearly knows they stink and with that said it appears damn near the entire team is on the trading block!

So with that said, Kobe wanted no parts of getting dap from Roy Hibbert after making a basket, considering the Lakers were already getting blown out by 17 early in the game. There are still no moral victories in the world of the Black Mamba.

IFWT_NanceJr


It has been a long, long season for the Lakers and that’s crazy because we are only at Christmas. There is still alot of basketball to play and it will likely continue to get worse. During the Christmas night match up with the crosstown rival Clippers, Lakers Larry Nance Jr went to grab a rebound and tipped it into the basket instead. Normally that would be good but he tipped it into the Clippers basket and it was just an example of the type of year this team is having. The reaction from Lou Williams is priceless.

NBA: Byron Scott Reveals Kobe Told Him He Was Going To Retire In The Middle Of A Game

IFWT_Kobe_Byron2


Yesterday I wrote about how Dwyane Wade was likely the first person outside Kobe’s family to know he was going to retire at the end of this season. He told him back in early November, way before Kobe penned his letter for The Players Tribune, in which he told the world he was retiring. As it turns out, his coach Byron Scott also found out before the rest of us (as you would expect) but it came in a very surprising fashion.

Seeing how things this season with the Lakers are not expected to go well, there has been constant talk about Kobe not wanting to go out like that and possibly wanting to play again next season. Problem is it’s pretty clear the Lakers wouldn’t want him back, meaning he would have to play elsewhere.
