“The Greatest Player Ever?!”

— January 24th, 2006 — 

Kobe Bryant

Nah, I don’t think that Kobe is the greatest player ever… but I sure wish that I had caught that game on the television.  I should invest in that NBA All-League Pass or something like that.  Kobe Bryant [for those that don’t know] scored 81-points the other night versus the Toronto Raptors. 

 To me — the Raptors are a garbage team with talent.  Bosh is developing nicely and Jalen Rose still has some life left in him.  But it seems like cats do them dirty once they step foot on the court.  Remember when King James lit ’em up for about 50-plus?  Even though the Cavs lost that game, it still must’ve been upsetting for the Raptors defense — knowing that they couldn’t really stop James from scoring.  Only way to defeat him was to score more points than he could.

Well, that wasn’t the case with Kobe.  He not only brought the Lakers back to win the game, he outscored a few other teams who had games that same night. 

Speakings of games — I missed the Suns/Supersonics game and that was a tragedy.  Ray Allen [who is still probably spending residual checks off of “He Got Game”] crushed Steve Nash’s heart with a buzzer-beater three point in double overtime. 

You gotta love the NBA… it’s fantastic!!!


El Presidente just can’t play his position in peace, huh?  For those who have been on another planet, you too, can hear what Harlem’s Finest has to say about the Brooklyn Brawler.  Cam made a lot of claims, both vague and wide-out in the open.  Do I think Jay will respond?  I don’t know.  Not sure that I even want him to.  When it comes to rappers and retirement that is something that only lasts for so long [remember Too $hort???].  Jay is comfortable in the H.P.I.C. chair with acts like Young Jeezy, Mariah Carey, and Juelz putting up numbers.  Marcy’s Finest doesn’t need to come back and wreck shop on Cam.  Especially, not when Queens has finally stepped into the Def Jam building!  I think that a Jay/Nas collabo on an album would be great for the culture.  If shit like “Laffy Taffy” and “Lean Wit It, Rock Wit It,” gets major airplay then a joint with those two will certainly pull in the masses.  But will an album from Nas on Def Jam do anything significant?  Meaning will it go platinum?!  Crack Music is in and Byron Crawford thinks that Nas’s good years have already left. 

What do you think?  Hit up the comments and tell me what you think.
