Premium cable network Showtime has a collaborated with Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant to make a documentary that tells the story of how he became the man that he is today. The documentary is set to debut in February of 2015, but an early first-look trailer was released Friday to drum up some early hype. The 16-year veteran spoke with Variety about the documentary. People know me because of what I am, a basketball player. In ‘Muse,’ everyone will begin to
Kobe Bryant is an NBA legend. As a matter of fact, he’s knocking on Michael Jordan’s door as we speak, ready to take his spot for third on the all-time scoring list. He’s only 31 points away from MJ and making history, which he’s already done a couple times this season. There’s a chance Kobe will leap Jordan on Friday night on national television when the Lakers travel to San Antonio to face the defending champion Spurs on ESPN.
Metta World Peace, Ron Artest, Panda Friend. Whatever the name is on his medical form and the roster chart, the diagnosis is still the same: ‘Recurrence of knee injury – recovery time: three-to-five weeks.’ In the NBA, this would mean a spell on the sidelines. But in the Chinese Basketball Association, it is often the end of the season for an overseas player. This is the ruthless nature of life in the CBA, particularly for the league’s American imports. They’re brought in
It took huge fantasy scores to win the big money at DraftKings on Saturday, as ten of 12 NBA teams put up 100 points or more. My main lineup produced 277 FPTs, often good enough to turn a profit, yet didn’t get a sniff.
Tonight, there’s an exclusive contest for everyone who has signed up at DraftKings using a link from Sheridan Hoops. It’s “Beat the Pro” — just finish ahead of Chris Sheridan and your entry fee will be refunded, in addition to whatever prize money you win.
Remember that time in the summer when Carmelo Anthony had the chance to join a team that was basically tailor-made for him? Hint: it’s not the floundering team he’s with right now. The answer: it was the Chicago Bulls, and they wanted the small forward badly to potentially create one of the most devastating teams in the entire NBA. Unfortunately, they couldn’t pay him the money necessary to bring him in (technically, no one could except you know who), and Anthony ultimately
Leave it to Jeff Van Gundy to use the holiday season as another outlet for his vastly underrated sense of humor. During Wednesday’s ESPN telecast of New York-Dallas, the analyst said he was thankful that there were not two Eastern Conferences. But as Thanksgiving quickly morphed into the Christmas shopping season, perhaps Van Gundy could ask Santa Claus for another Western Conference. Because that would allow us to throw out the Eastern Conference with all the torn wrapping paper, ugly sweaters and
Kobe Bryant achieved something on Sunday night that no one else in NBA history has before. With his ninth assist in the third quarter versus the Toronto Raptors, Kobe recorded his 6,000th career assist. He became the first player ever to be named to the 30,000 point and 6,000 assist club. A little less than two weeks ago, he put himself in the record books when he scored his 32,000th career point against the Atlanta Hawks. He’s sitting at fourth on
