Kobe Bryant Has Got Game

Game 7 of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics is tonight. The two teams are tied at 3 games apiece. It all comes down to this game to determine which team will be crowned the 2010 NBA champs. The Lakers and Celtics have a historic rivalry with one another. Each team has won the championship multiple times. I've been a Lakers fan since I was a kid back in the 1980's. I wanted to post about Kobe Bryant today.

Kobe's definitely one of the greatest players in the game. He's one of those athletes that some people love, while there are also plenty who hate his guts. I wanted to post these pictures (by Peggy Sirota) of Kobe from
GQ in honor of him and the Lakers. Whether you like Kobe or not, what do you think of these photos?

P.S. I wanted to add this into the post this Friday morning. I was really worried for awhile, but the Lakers pulled it off. They were able to rally past the Celtics to win Game 7 by a score of 83 to 79. The Lakers have now won 16 titles throughout the years, while the Celtics are still tops with 17. Kobe now has 5 championship titles since he's been playing in the NBA. Congrats to Kobe and the Los Angeles Lakers!

Keith, as much as I'm thrilled that you've returned--and believe me, you're one of my favorites in the blogosphere--I have to say that I miss the Dino/Rat Pack/Retro spotlight that you used to do with more frequency. Yes, coolness *is* timeless, but I'd love a return to more retro-themed style. Whatever the case may be, I'm still a loyal follower and read your posts with devoted fervor.

GO LAKERS

Laura Tenshi said...

I am a soccer fan but a basketball fan...not so much. I do know Kobe and I think he is a terrific basketball player and these photos are great.My favorite is the fifth one. Yes, thank you I would like to exchange links

Amazing! Chic and fabulous...great shots!

Kinezoe said...

I like these photos. I go with the Lakers. Hope you have a fantastic time watching the match. Have fun and get luck, my friend ;-)

Cheers!

PS: Do you remember, Keith, the days of Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, James Worthy & company? They were really great.
In addition to Kobe, Gasol (my fellow) is also great, don't you think so?

He looks very smooth.

Zuzana said...

He truly looks so handsome in those suits, particularly the second one is stunning.;)
There is some truth to the old saying; "Clothes make a man.";)
Have a great day,

Ugh! I can't stomach Kobe. He needs a slice, or rather a whole entire humble pie. Ick! But I will say these pictures are much better than those God awful pictures in that white get up he wore in the LA Time.

GO CELTICS!!!

P.S-I do love Derek Fisher :)

Can't see eye to eye with you on this one, my friend.

I'm still trying to recover from a Magic Johnson hook shot that ripped the heart out of 9 year old Tights Lover back in 87.

I don't want my heart ripped out again...Go C's!

Good luck tonight, though!
