Jack Nicholson is unabashedly a huge Los Angeles Lakers fan. He’s more or less been courtside at every game, and with his celebrity status, it pretty much guarantees him a little bit of jumbotron screen time. Though during Nicholson’s last routine celeb shot, a man sitting behind the legendary actor was caught every so subtly smelling the star on camera.
Don’t lie: at some point in our lives, we all wonder what stars smell like, because for the amount of money they pull in every year, they better smell like a fresh field of flowers (or cash, but that doesn’t sound as nice). So yeah, I have to give it up to the mystery sniffer for satisfying his curiosity as he now knows what Jack Nicholson smells like. I hope the sniffer posts a vivid description online on what he was thinking that day and yes, what cologne he thinks the actor used that day.
This fan was feeling so disgruntled by Kobe Bryant’s recent performance that he used Gotye to express his emotions. The song, which was written and performed by Dan Rib, turns “Somebody That I Used To Know” into “The Kobe That We Used To Know.”
I’m not an expert on basketball so can someone please tell me, is Kobe really so disappointing lately that he deserves an entire musical rant? The cover definitely had some angry commenters going at each other on YouTube.
Still the lyrics are pretty clever, you got to give the guy that: “You didn’t have to hog the ball/ You’re triple teamed so kick it out to either Blake or Sessions/ I know that they don’t shoot so well/ But you’re really not the Kobe that we used to know.”
Watch it here:
According to KCBS-TV in Los Angeles, Bryant got upset after he thought the man was taking a cell phone picture of him and his wife. Bryant grabbed the phone out of the man’s hand, but didn’t find any pictures. The man is claiming his wrist was injured by Bryant.
Kobe – you gotta watch that temper.
Kobe Bryant along with other players of the L.A. Lakers have made a video encouraging tolerance of other people in a new public service announcement. This video was made after Kobe was caught making an anti-gay slur.
In the video, Kobe says, “There are all kinds of different people in the world. That’s what makes the world special.”
Kobe and his teammates continue, “So whether someone is different than you in race, ethnicity, political beliefs, religion … or sexual orientation … Words could be hurtful.”
Bryant continues, “Replace them with understanding, compassion and acceptance. Let’s make this a better world for all of us.”
You can tell the “sincerity” in all of their voices. Anyways you can check out the video over at TMZ.
TMZ is reporting that in celebration of both NBA All-Star weekend and Kobe being enshrined at Grauman’s Chinese Theater (whatever the hell that means), Bryant will throw a muchos-exclusive party at Boulevard 3 Nightclub in Los Angeles Saturday night.
I cannot speak from experience, but I couldn’t imagine the rest of the NBA party-goers are all too thrilled that it’s Kobe Bryant hosting the party. Will the guest list restricted to Derek Fisher and Kobe’s daughters?
They say in the 4th quarter this man has ice-water for blood, and apparently the same goes for when he’s planning a party list. Event Producer Jeru Tillman relayed that there will be a “vigorous” screening process for anyone looking to score a VIP table in the club that night.
That said however, Kobe is perhaps known above anyone to really come through if he gets a good screen. Party on.
Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski penned a great article yesterday about how Kobe Bryant maintains dedication to his craft. The piece draws on the strange friendship between Kobe and Michael Jackson, and how it was Jackson, not Michael Jordan, that taught Kobe to be great.
I won’t bore you with the details, (even though they aren’t at all boring) because Wojnarowski illustrates the point beautifully, and the article is a must-read for anyone interested in how great minds work and how great human achievement is reached. In essence, it was the King of Pop who taught Kobe the pursuit of perfection and how to keep on course.
Jackson, like Bryant, was relentlessly obsessed with being the best. In an age when LeBron James is busy promoting books, movies, rap songs and TV specials where he announces where he will be playing, Kobe on the other hand is in the gym. Practicing. This is the stuff that makes Kobe what he is, and this is the stuff he learned from MJ. The other MJ.
The young pop singer turned the big 1-6 yesterday (March. 1), and celebrated like a regular teenager – well, a regular, super-rich teenager.
Bieber has rented out a private estate in Los Angeles where he and his friends have been watching movies and eating dinners, reports E! Online. As for last night’s celebrations, the pop sensation reportedly had some nice clean fun that included sumo wrestling, karaoke, and laser tag.
This is the uniform for one of Canada’s leading sports personalities. Hard to believe?
Meet Cabral “Cabbie” Richards, The Score Network’s animated icon, who has sent a loud message out to the media industry: traditional reporting isn’t always successful, and that his new-school style of interviewing can trump those old-school classroom methods.
In his interviews with star athletes on The Score’s Cabbie on the Street, it’s always a challenge to pint-point exactly the recipe for his success. But narrowing it down, there’s one key ingredient that differentiates the 31-year-old from Cambridge, Ontario, from the rest.
Exhibit B: his swagger.
