Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal don't hate each other, wish they had not argued through the press

Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal have put aside their differences. Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal were one of the most dominant two-man tandems in both Los Angeles Lakers and NBA history, winning three-straight NBA Finals (including a 16-1 run in 2001) and making a fourth trip to the Finals in 2004. But as much success as the two found together on the court, their relationship off the court was quite possibly equally dysfunctional and chaotic, marred by constant both anonymous and public shots at each other through the press. The relationship between the two has seemingly warmed as they...

Kobe Bryant's NBA 2K16 rating revealed

The Black Mamba's rating in video game land is lower than ever, folks. The first closeup look of Kobe Bryant in NBA 2K16 is in, with the Black Mamba wearing the non-sleeved version of the Lakers' Hollywood Nights jersey with a snarl on his face. More importantly to those faithful to the franchise, though, is his 85 overall rating: The "Black Mamba" @kobebryant in #NBA2K16, who has appeared in EVERY @NBA2K game to date!

Jim Buss opens up about the Lakers, says team is approaching 2015-16 like it is Kobe Bryant's final season

Jim Buss spoke about Kobe Bryant and much more to Eric Pincus of the LA Times in a rare interview. Los Angeles Lakers executive vice president of basketball operations and owner Jim Buss ascended to his current position in 2005. Throughout his entire tenure, the Lakers have had Kobe Bryant to rely on for both on the court production and to put butts in seats at Staples Center. Soon that will come to an end, with Bryant entering the 20th and likely final year of his illustrious career. Buss understands that Bryant's tenure is nearing its conclusion, telling Eric Pincus of the LA Times...

Manny Pacquiao and Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson playing chess together in the Philippines

Jordan Clarkson's summer seems to be going alright. Jordan Clarkson started making a name for himself with his impressive play for the Los Angeles Lakers during his rookie season, and he's now making moves to represent the Philippines in national play. A certain Manny Pacquiao may have taken notice of his fellow Filipino athlete, and naturally the two took to a game of chess to get together: (via Clarkson's Instagram) Lining up with Kobe Bryant on the Lakers and playing chess, not checkers, with Pacquiao. It's been an amazing journey for Jordan, to say the least.

Lakers News: Kobe Bryant returns to shooting for first time since tearing rotator cuff

Kobe Bryant is back where he belongs: on a basketball court. If the Los Angeles Lakers hope to have any chance of outperforming analyst expectations and climbing out of the Western Conference basement, one of the things they will need is a healthy season from Kobe Bryant. Bryant has missed the majority of the last two seasons with injuries, and heading into his 20th and likely final season in the NBA fans are hoping the future Hall of Famer can make it through the 2015-16 campaign mostly unscathed. After presenting singer Taylor Swift with a banner in Staples Center honoring her 16 sold...

Lakers News: Kobe Bryant tweets that criticism doesn't affect him

Critiques (and inflatable mascots) do not phase the Black Mamba. What do Milwaukee Bucks' mascot Bango and the average Twitter troll have in common? Well according to Kobe Bryant's latest tweet, neither of them are enough to even make him break stride: My reaction to critics is the same as my reaction in the vid #excuseme https://t.co/Y7w4TnAow0 — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) August 17, 2015 Here is the tweet Bryant quoted, in case you do not want to click on it: The Bucks tried to scare Kobe , but Kobe has no human emotions so it didn't work. pic.twitter.com/fztA6wnauw — RT GIFS...

Kobe Bryant wants to 'shock the world' with D'Angelo Russell, tweets him it's all love

Nothing brings Kobe Bryant and D'Angelo Russell together like... Tracy McGrady? We have been waiting for it ever since D'Angelo Russell tweeted that Tracy McGrady might have been the greatest player of all time on Thursday and it finally happened: Russell teammate, McGrady contemporary, and man who probably thinks of himself as the GOAT, Kobe Bryant, finally responded and he only needed one emoji to do it: https://t.co/Bntj1e5PsY — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) August 15, 2015 Not so shockingly, Kobe is not that angry that his 19-year old teammate tweeted something complimentary about...

Kobe Bryant absolutely deserves a spot on Team USA for the 2016 Rio Olympics

Jerry Colangelo hinted Kobe Bryant might be in the running for a spot in the 2016 Olympics and, as usual, the internet went into a frenzy. Any time Kobe Bryant's name is brought up, a conversation brews that tends to lack in things like, you know, logic. To say Kobe is polarizing is to say water is wet, or that Michael Jordan is competitive. When Team USA's managing director hinted Bryant might be an option for the 2016 Olympics, of course social media exploded into a frenzy. And, of course said frenzy lost all nuance and perspective. This is how we handle Kobe. The argument for Bryant's...

Lakers News: Kobe Bryant wants to "ride out to the sunset" with a gold medal

Could Kobe Bryant represent the United States one last time? The end date of Kobe Bryant's NBA career was very likely revealed on Wednesday, but that may not be the last time the Los Angeles Lakers' legend takes the court with other professional basketball players. According to USA Basketball director Jerry Colangelo (via ESPN's Dave McMenamin), Bryant has said he wants to "ride out to the sunset" with a gold medal in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. However, Bryant also told Colangelo he wants to earn his way on to the team rather than be given a spot on the final 12-man roster based...
