Nick Young Or Iggy Azalea? Kobe Chooses “Fancy” Singer Over Teammate

Kobe Bryant

Perhaps Nick Young’s perpetual act is finally wearing as thin on Kobe Bryant as we all expected. In a series of rapid fire questions by Lakers reporter Mike Trudell, Kobe was asked to choose between Swaggy P and his girlfriend, Iggy Azalea. Bryant’s answer? Iggy, of course. Read More »

Nick Young Talks Kobe, Hazing Rookies, His Defense & More At Media Day

Nick Young

We’re pretty sure Nick Young was the perfect interview yesterday during Lakers media day. He was witty, bombastic, hyperbolic, continually self-referential, and basically a reporters waking dream during a day that can drag and turn monotonous for players and reporters.

He talked to the media about training with Kobe Bryant, hazing rookies and a hysterical — possibly farcical, it’s hard to tell — conversation he had with coach Byron Scott about the team’s defense.

The NBA Fit campaign is a worthy cause. Who better to teach the world’s youth the values of exercise, eating well, and general healthy habits than their basketball heroes? But the league’s promotional spots for NBA Fit have always lacked creativity, something that’s never made much sense considering its track record of quality, unique advertising. This new NBA Fit video featuring a finger-wagging Dikembe Mutombo is far more like it. Read More »

Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin

Maybe it’s the soundtrack — A Tribe Called Quest‘s kinetic masterpiece, “What’s the Scenario,” with the first time Busta Rhymes got some shine after his rapid-fire verse — but the “Momentus” trailer for NBA 2K15 is our favorite so far. Featuring seemingly every player you want to see next season, but also some of their signature moves, this gameplay-heavy release from 2K Sports is just the thing to cure any autumnal doldrums.

Dwight Howard’s red cape and blue suit are gone. He’s not considered basketball’s Superman anymore, a reality owed as much to his persona wearing thin on the public as his still All-Star yet clearly deteriorated play on the court. There have been flashes of the dominant presence that was once considered the second best player in the league – Howard’s playoff performance against the Portland Trail Blazers last spring are the most memorable ones – but they’ve been all too fleeting.

All NBA players take different roads to their place in the league. The overhauled “MyCareer” mode of NBA 2K15 drives home that sometimes humbling reality, putting your create-a-player in the unenviable but opportunistic position of so many real-life prospects – as an undrafted free agent.
