Kobe Bryant delivers the final miss again

LOS ANGELES -- You know the scenario. Everyone does. We’ve seen it unfold so many times for so many years that to expect it to unfold any other way feels sacrilegious.

Kobe Bryant's Family Congratulates Him on Scoring Milestone

Awwwwww well that was sweet. The Lakers played the now standard tribute video to honor Kobe for passing MJ as the third all-time scorer, but then his family brought him a bunch of balloons at mid-court and joined Kobe for a big embrace.

The Mamba Moment: Kobe Bryant passes Michael Jordan

Buying Jordans vs. buying the new Kobes. Which is morally right? Over the years Kobe has constantly been compared to Michael Jordan.  Last Sunday Bryant passed Jordan on the NBA scoring list.  He did this while wearing his "Mamba Moment" kicks, a new colorway of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low.  This was a very big accomplishment for Bryant, and he is without a doubt one of the best players to ever play the game.  As long as basketball continues to be played, so will debates about who the GOAT is.  But what about the shoes; who has the greatest shoes of all time? As far as most Sneakerheads...
