“What 17-year-old kid looks at the photo credit on his Magic Johnson poster?” Bernstein said. “Kobe totally had an awareness of what my role was, which was to document his career.”
This season, Bernstein’s assignment was to document Kobe’s basketball death. The last visits through each city, the final words to his former rivals. Bernstein saw everything, and sometimes he really wasn’t sure what he was looking at.
For two decades, Kobe Bryant had burned angrily in the night sky. He pissed people off and pushed them towards uncomfortable places. He was uncompromising in his demand for excellence and passion.
At All-Star Games, Kobe would get mad at players who didn’t go hard. Remember in 2012 when Dwyane Wade broke Kobe’s nose at the All Star Game? That’s when they became good friends.
Aaron Gordon Jersey The Clippers have inflicted two of San Antonio’s six losses this season. That’s the extent of the good news to be passed along from Clipperland these days after Chris Paul, who started the season so well, joined Blake Griffin on the sideline thanks to a tweaked hamstring.
In their first two games without the services of their two best players, Doc Rivers & Co. lost to Dallas (which was 2-13 on the road) and the Lakers (who had lost 11 straight games to their Staples Center co-tenants).
Something we didn’t expect to see this Christmas: Charlotte is tied with Memphis for the 10th-best odds to win it all (100-to-1), according to the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.
That’s a long way from saying these Hornets are a legit title contender, of course, but top 10 is top 10. The Hornets, for the record, are also one of just six teams in the league (along with Memphis, Chicago, Cleveland, Utah and San Antonio) that have never surrendered a triple-double to Russell Westbrook. Something to keep in mind with the Hornets due to host the Thunder on Jan. 4.
