Being comfortable in one’s skin can be a difficult task, but veteran center Brendan Haywood from the Cleveland Cavaliers has mastered the art. He’s a throwback type of center. You know, the type that likes to rebound, block shots and stay close to the basket. He’s a contributor not a complainer and never worries about what he isn’t. Instead, he focuses on what he is, and how he can help his team. Read More »

Reggie Miller: Bad Michael Jordan Is “10 Times Better” Than Good Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant, Reggie Miller, Michael Jordan

Comparing anyone to Michael Jordan is futile. There likely won’t ever be another player who can match his gaudy team and individual accomplishments, and there certainly won’t ever be one that carries the same level of cultural clout. But Kobe Bryant brings it on himself – with on-court brilliance, maniacal dedication, and an admission that Jordan is who he emulates. We doubt that will make Reggie Miller’s assessment any easier for Mamba – let alone his legion of rabid fans – to stomach. Read More »

Steve Kerr On Whether Warriors Could Match 72-Win Bulls: “Oh God, No. No!”

Steve Kerr

After a thrilling, closer-than-expected 128-122 win over the Pelicans on Sunday night to extend Golden State’s winning streak to 16 games and give them a 21-2 start to the season — the best in NBA history for a rookie head coach — hyperbole, of course, entered the fray. Ethan Sherwood Strauss of ESPN.com asked Steve Kerr if his Dubs team could match the 1995-96 Bulls — who went 72-10 with Kerr as their three-point specialist. Kerr was pretty adamant the idea is hogwash so early in the season, saying,”Oh God, no. No!” Read More »

Should Kobe Bryant score nine points in tonight’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Los Angeles Lakers legend will pass Michael Jordan for third on the league’s all-time scoring list.
