New Helmets for Boise State

Disrespect to a Legend


5 NBA championships, 7 Finals appearances, 2 NBA Finals MVPs, 1 NBA MVP, 14 NBA All Star selections, 4 All-Star MVPs, 2 NBA scoring titles, 10 All-NBA First team selections, 2 All-NBA Second team selections, 2 All-NBA Third team selections, 9 All-NBA First team defense selections, 3 All-NBA defensive second team. All of these impressive achievements were not compiled by a team but instead from a single player, a legendary figure by the name of Kobe Bean Bryant, also known as the 6th best player in the NBA by ESPN…….yes thats not a typo, it says 6th. ESPN has the audacity to rank Bryant outside of the top 5 for the second consecutive season (7th in 2011). Now all the Kobe haters out there will be quick to point out that these stats reflect the younger Kobe Bryant, these people are idiots. The so-called old man averaged 27.9 pts/game good for second in the NBA, led all NBA players in All-star game voting, won an Olympic gold medal, and carried a mediocre Lakers team all season all in the past 12 months.

Not only does Bryant possess the physical tools and career accomplishments to place him in the top 5 but he also possesses a competitive drive that is matched by no other athlete in any major sport. Kobe Bryant simply does not accept average play, anything below a championship is seen as defeat by Bryant which is what separates him from many other athletes on this planet. Now I’m not saying Kobe Bryant is currently the best player in the league, that honor clearly goes to Lebron James and even 2nd place would have to go to Kevin Durant, however I see no reasonable explanation for why Bryant slipped out of the top 3, yet alone the top 5 altogether. I may be a Lakers fan but make no mistake, there are many Non-Lakers fans out there that share this view. It is clear that Bryant is clearly one of the most decorated and accomplished players to ever step foot on the hardwood and clearly still posses world-class talent, unfortunately the boneheads at ESPN don’t understand that.

Mood In Gotham City Rogues Training Camp Upbeat

GOTHAM CITY—At a press conference following Monday’s practice, newly appointed Rogues head coach Adam Kewell said the team was feeling cheerfully optimistic about the upcoming season despite the constant reminder of the devastating terrorist attacks that killed thousands in the city last winter. “Obviously football had to take a backseat for a while there, and our thoughts are with all the victims and their families,” said Kewell, referring to the bombings that destroyed much of the city’s infrastructure and obliterated the field at Gotham Stadium, forcing the Rogues to play home games at Gotham Tech Stadium. “We only have one player left on the roster from last season, but everyone in this organization knows how important football is to the Gotham community, especially this year. If we can help the healing process by winning some football games, then that’s exactly what we’re going to do.” Rogues officials later unveiled the team’s new jerseys, which feature 89 black patches commemorating the Gotham City players and coaches who lost their lives during the tragic attacks.
