Bill Simmons at Game 7 2010 Finals

Our favorite writer tweeted today: "Dear Kobe: stop staring down dudes like you're going to kick their ass. We all remembert(sic) this." He then proceeded to link to video of Chris Childs punching Kobe. One particular fan responded with this video, which I had not seen before. Good, clean heckling, and really funny.

Made me LOL that Shane Battier's career highlight was listed as: Held Kobe Bryant to 11 of 33 shooting in the 22nd win of the Rockets’ 22-game win streak on March 16, 2008. Really? That's his career highlight?

Because of the increase in visibilty, the All-Star game is an opportunity for players to promote themselves and their shoes. Kobe Bryant goes one step further in the process and has actually made a six minute movie to promote his brand, and at the same time provide everyone with some entertainment and something to talk about this weekend. We'll help out in the promotion, but only because it seems that they've gone above and beyond a simple commercial to try to reach their target audience (most of us here). Full Black Mamba Movie (released today at 1AM) - not just the trailer, which you may have seen before Now let's all question Kobe's commitment to the game now that he is making movies a la Shaq. JK.

Kobe talks about what motivated him to win the last two titles (some bad words).
