The first of my shortcomings this week is actually a good thing. The rest however won’t be. Enjoy.
Congratulations to Kobe Bryant. He became the youngest player, and 5th ever, to eclipse the 30,000 point barrier in NBA history. He may have been the youngest, but technically it took him the longest. He played in more games than any of the other 4 players on the list. I think this distinction to me just tells me that he is nearing the end of his career and I for one am a little sad, because I can’t remember the last time the Lakers played with Kobe. It’s gonna be sad to see him go.
Is anybody else tired of rookie hazing? I know that some of the pranks played on rookies in the all the major professional sports can be funny, but really guys? You are all grown men asking other grown men to wear a dress around for your own amusement. Why don’t you be the person to stop this dumb fraternity-like ritual and come up with something else for the rookies to do.
Is there anyway to get Bill Simmons fired from ESPN? I am so tired of him being on Sportscenter or writing on ESPN.COM and doing nothing but bashing the Lakers. I understand that he is a diehard Celtics fan, but this is getting ridiculous. He spends more of his time trying to knock the Lakers than he does supporting his own team. Whatever happened to writers having to be impartial? Let’s bring that back.
