Shaq is just like Dylan at the Royal Albert Hall concert. Same-same.

God damn! Shaq is way too big here

Look at that belly. Damn. did he walk up and down?

Everyone relax, this argument is moot once Kobe shuts it down for the season in a month or so

Has anyone caught a recent Pistons game? I'm finding this 7-game win streak very interesting. It bodes well for SVG and his young cadre of players. It bodes ill for Josh Smith. I remember a few years ago, philadelphia fans clamoring for him and instead we got Elton Brand. Both would've been bad, although at least Brand was a class act around the city.

You mean Melo?


Bescua I think Mamba is still gunning for Karls number.

melo for sure, kobe maybe as well, there've been rumors.

kobe is surprisingly not shooting for malone/jabbar as hard as i thought he would. publicly he's said he doesn't care about it at all and that he's gonna retire after next year, and he's passing a ton more recently. pretty shocking to me, given how he started the year.

My sense is that Kobe doesn't really consider any historical benchmarks other than MJ interesting or relevant.

I watched last one vs Dallas. Jennings and Augustin outplayed Rondo. Rondo was terrible, throwing shit passes whole game.

Brand was overpaid but he was good. Not sure what went wrong he was beast with Bulls and Clippers. nothing Josh Smith ever did could touch Brand best years.

here's a cool article on the hawks rebranding themselves and doing the exact opposite of what the owner's leaked email desired. that is, they're taking an L on the baseball fan demographic and solely advertising towards blacks and millenials down here (tinder swipe right!!). you can really tell when going to the games. i was kind of honestly surprised when there was a white family of 4 behind me last night.

that's pretty inspiring in its own way. definitely preferable to gunning for records and being a gloryhound.

re: kobe, i just read this article on grantland that is pretty in tune w/ what you're saying. no interview or anything, but it's well-written and i liked it. http://grantland.com/the-triangle/wolf-on-the-rock-the-ludicrous-glorious-doom-of-kobe-bryant/

Read that Grantland article this morning.

TL;DR version is basically as accomplished as Kobe is; in 10-20 years, he won't be spoken in the same regard as the Dirks, Duncans, Magics

Let's wait and see. That new TV deal is set to kick in next year.
