I like frontbutts and I cannot lie.
Kobe Bryant said after his 42 point performance last night that he wasn’t tired. After tonight’s 41 point game he was clearly exhausted. There’s only so many ways you can laud his determination, will to win, and his performance even after 17 years in the league. He’s 34 years old and arguably just as incredible. Without a doubt, it’s the year of the snake.
What a friendly little bugga.
Lakers win! Lakers win!
Player of the Game: Kobe Bryant, again just 1 rebound shy of a triple double, scored 21 points on 8-12 shooting, matched a season high 14 assists, and collected 9 rebounds in a 105-96 win against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Pau Gasol scored 16 off the bench and Dwight Howard added 10 rebounds.
kobebeanbryant: “Never. Not at all. My mind doesn’t work that way. It’s something that’s never even entered my thought process. The last time I was intimidated was when I was 6 years old in karate class. I was an orange belt and the instructor ordered me to fight a black belt who was a couple years older and a lot bigger. I was scared s—-less. I mean, I was terrified and he kicked my ass. But then I realized he didn’t kick my ass as bad as I thought he was going to and that there was nothing really to be afraid of. That was around the time I realized that intimidation didn’t really exist if you’re in the right frame of mind.” —Kobe Bryant when asked if he’s ever been intimidated on the basketball court
