Badgers Player Gets Kobe Bryant's Locker in Staples Center

What would you do if you got Kobe Bryant's locker? The Wisconsin Badgers Twitter account just posted a picture that surely makes many Lakers fans envious: the look on a player's face when they find out they are borrowing Kobe Bryant's locker: That moment when you find out you have @kobebryant's locker... pic.twitter.com/EQjARhaNDk — Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) March 25, 2015 That was probably exciting for the kid, but not as exciting as having Kobe actually tweet at the team to wish them good luck: LOL @BadgerMBB best of luck to you guys! #MarchMadness — Kobe Bryant...

Shootaround Stuff: Wolves-Lakers, 3/25

The Minnesota Timberwolves go for a second consecutive win tonight at Target Center. The Minnesota Timberwolves lost 22 consecutive games to the Los Angeles Lakers before ending the skid with a win during November of last season. The Wolves have taken four of the previous six meetings between these teams, including a 120-119 win at Staples Center earlier this year. Last time the Lakers were in Minneapolis, though, all eyes were on Kobe Bryant as he surpassed Michael Jordan on the NBA's All-Time Scorers list. Bryant is still recovering from surgery performed on his right rotator cuff and...

Kobe Bryant Considered Retirement After Injuring Shoulder

Bryant also elaborated on his mindset heading into the last year of his contract. Kobe Bryant told assembled media Tuesday night that he contemplated retirement after being given the news that he had a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

Bryant told reporters during a pregame press conference at Staples Center before the Lakers played against the Detroit Pistons. The injured Lakers shooting guard also definitively stated that he would not retire, and would play out the last year of...

Kobe: Successor must have drive for titles

LOS ANGELES -- To lead the Los Angeles Lakers, Kobe Bryant said a certain type of DNA is required. "Win championships or nothing. To lead this franchise, you've got to be that way," the Lakers star said Tuesday before L.A. played the Detroit Pistons at Staples Center. Bryant, who was making his first public comments to local media since suffering a season-ending shoulder injury on Jan. 21, added that it's easy to recognize that identity in players.

Kobe can't let go of Rondo, and the idea of Rondo with the Lakers

Kobe can't let go of Rondo, and the idea of Rondo with the Lakers

Would Rondo want to play with Bryant, who will enter his 20th, and maybe his final, NBA season in 2015-16? Kobe isn't 2008 Kobe and not even 2012 Kobe. The Lakers are one of the worst teams in the NBA with very little assets in place to contend anytime soon. So would that still entice Rondo to join the Lakers? Bryant has expressed for the past two seasons that Rondo would be an ideal teammate. They both share values on winning and how to approach the game of basketball. I think it's a great fit in some ways.. But I hate the idea of Rondo in a Lakers uniform. I would cut all ties with Rondo as...

Kobe Bryant Mentors Jordan Clarkson on the Sidelines

This is a great visual, the Lakers last truly great rookie guard (Kobe Bryant) giving some pointers to it's current one (Jordan Clarkson), who is playing pretty good himself (via the Lakers' Twitter feed): Open up Snapchat, add 'LakersSnaps' and you'll see more behind-the-scenes action like this. pic.twitter.com/TDkhbELX8P — Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) March 9, 2015 The only way this could be better is if Kobe was in uniform.
