Now that it’s officially coming to an end, we can step back and appreciate the career of one of the best to ever lace them up. As Adande and Durant noted, Kobe’s place will probably be best remembered as the bridge between Jordan and the current greats.
Everyone will have their own ‘favorite’ moments. As someone who definitely saw more of the day in day out regular season games than most NBA fans, today’s clip goes back to a game that, I’ll always remember watching live, and like many Laker fans screamed ‘THIS MUTHAF&&&A!’ at the top of my lungs. Twice. And yes, for those of us wired to enjoy the silence that comes from shutting people up as we enjoy the love of our supporters…this is one of the best.
The setting: Portland. Last game of the season. With a win, the Lakers secure the second seed and the Pacific Division.
And thanks for the memories Kobe.
Alright, NOW it’s officially the holiday season!
Time to drink that hot cocoa (yes even in L.A. it’s a little chilly…)
Time to throw on your favorite carols (which will be the next couple Sundays…)
And of course, time to watch your favorite holiday themed spoofs (starring the Prince of Gotham!)
Hopefully you’re spending this time with people you love. Or who you at least tolerate long enough to enjoy a good meal with.
See you Sunday.
Me, moments ago, to Ben Affleck…
Man…look at this…
As many of us are enjoying this ‘chip on their shoulder’ run at history the Warriors are making, in my best Kanye voice let me say,
‘Steph, I’m a let you finish, but the 96 Bulls had the greatest introduction of all time!’
Alright gang, short work week right? Let’s do this right.
In honor of her triumphant return to the scene, my favorite Missy/Timbaland song, and it’s not even close.
IT’S THE WEEKEND!!!! GET IT!!!
In case you missed it, my brother from another continental mother Aziz Ansari is using his moment in the sun to talk about some real things in between the jokes (like other Aziz’s you know…)
Check it out:
Aziz Ansari’s New York Times Essay
OK, if the whole point of this semi-recurring bit was to get to a point where they could land that last joke?
And props to Elizabeth Banks for (as usual) being a good straight (w0)man.

I had a few gentlemen’s bets of my own on the World Series that I won, so this was cool to see.
Well done, Mister Mayor. Til Next Year…
NYC World Series Payoff!
