Stephen Curry trash-talked Kobe Bryant as rookie … it didn’t go well

Stephen Curry hasn’t always been the awe-inspiring and seemingly unstoppable force he has developed into over his nearly seven NBA seasons. At one point, he was a bright-eyed rookie trying to find his way … but nevertheless was a player that apparently already possessed some semblance of the confidence that has propelled him to superstardom, an MVP award and an NBA title.

Ryan Anderson Commits Crime, Dunks On Kobe

Kobe Bryant has made a living dunking on helpless big men. There was the one on Vlade Divac, the one on Todd Macculloch, and, of course, the one on Yao. On Thursday night, Ryan Anderson took it upon himself to defend their honor, dunking on Bryant late in a New Orleans Pelicans 99-96 loss to Bryant’s Lakers. What makes this so terrible for Bryant is that he thought he had a chance...

Kobe ‘as puzzled by it as you are’ over great three-game stretch

Kobe Bryant put up his third consecutive blast-from-the-past performance in the Los Angeles Lakers’ 99-96 road victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday night. And given how he has struggled so mightily for significant stretches during his 2015-16 NBA season swan song, the 37-year-old soon-to-be retiree is having difficulty explaining why he’s played so well of late...

Kobe Bryant drains clutch three-pointer, does finger wag

Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant has gone off in his last three games, dropping 23, 38 and 27 points. And the team has benefited, winning their last two games. Bryant drained 10 of 24 shots in Thursday night’s game against the Hornets, and he put on a performance that resembled the Black Mamba in his prime. With the Lakers up by three points and under a minute remaining...

Sam Mitchell can’t wait for Kobe Bryant to be out of the NBA

If there’s one person in the NBA who’s seen far too much of Kobe Bryant throughout the Lakers star’s 19-season career, it’s Sam Mitchell. In 2006, Mitchell was the coach of the Toronto Raptors when the Black Mamba slithered his way to an 81-point game. As if that weren’t enough, on Tuesday, Kobe lit up Mitchell’s T-Wolves for a season-high 38 points as part of a 119-115...

Remembering Kobe Bryant's MSG record 61 points

“He’s going to go out there and really establish himself and his team as winners, not play down to the Knicks but elevate above the Knicks. To score 61 points — I’ve been in the 50 range a couple times but to score 60 is a whole other level. That is a lot more shot attempts, a lot more effort. He can reach the 100 plateau.” — Jamal Mashburn Scoring 100 points in...

Kobe Bryant on snapping losing streak: ‘It doesn’t really matter’

WATCH: Kobe wanted seat on bench, sent rookie to floor

When Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant tells you to jump, you jump. And the same rule applies to seating arrangements. If Kobe wants your seat, you had better get up and move. This exact situation arose in Tuesday night’s Mavericks-Lakers game, which Bryant sat out due to a sore right shoulder. Space was limited on the Lakers bench in the first quarter of the game, so...
