SPORTS: Baron Davis in La La Land?

2 06 2008

Baron Davis enjoys a courtside laugh with Adam Sandler at a Laker playoff game. Davis has one year remaining on his current contract with the Golden State Warriors with an Early Termination Option at his disposal. Recent news has Davis’ agent a bit ticked off at a low ball offer made by the Warriors to extend Davis’ contract. We all know Davis is a Cali boy. Does Kobe have the star power to draw a superstar point guard into the fold? Only time will tell. Props to Davis for reppin the Cali culture, cap and S/S flannel both by The Hundreds. He gone…

The Best in the Game: MVP Kobe Bryant Turns Back Spurs Upset Bid in Game 1

22 05 2008

 

If you didn’t see Kobe’s performance in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals, then you missed why Kobe was named this past season’s MVP and why the Lakers are en route to another championship. After languishing through 3 quarters of basketball where they seemed lifeless, perhaps due, in part, to their 4 day layoff, and down 20 points, the Lakers rallied back to take a 89-85 win.

Forget everything else though, after only scoring 2 points and not attempting a single free throw in the first half, Kobe scored 25 2nd half points, on 10-17 shooting including the game winning basket with 23 seconds remaining in the game. The Lakers as a team defended well, closed out on the Spurs 3pt shooters and Manu Ginobili had a horrific night. A true off night for the Argentinian star. One final note from last night’s game, Sasha Vujacic, I like dude’s game. Real feisty, hard nosed player. Something many European imports to the NBA aren’t quite lauded for.
