Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan–up until the arrival and dominance of LeBron James–were compared so tirelessly both basketball stars had no choice but to start addressing the comparisons in their individual interviews. And despite Kobe Bryant’s quest to chase down Jordan’s ring count–Kobe has 5, Jordan retired with 6–there’s no denying that Bryant is one of the best players this game has ever seen.
This video clip, which compares Kobe and Jordan’s on-court moves so seamlessly they’re literally meshed together in the intro, is a scary piece of proof that not only did Kobe study Jordan, he emulated him, to the point of seamless imitation. There’s no shame in that–all the greats study the greats that came before them–but the similarities in their games are uncanny. Check it out for yourself.
At the Jordan XX9 release event in Las Vegas, Teyana Taylor decided to get on the court and show off some “skills”. Unfortunately, she didn’t look too good. In the video shown here, Taylor gets crossed over, trips and almost falls. Is ball really life?
Make sure to keep an eye out for Teyana’s new album VII which is set to drop on October 21st.
Ball isn;t life for Zalika (@zee_cuffy) but she’ll be quit to show what she got.
The Cleveland Cavaliers will be quite a team to watch this year. Of course the majority of the hype surrounds the return of King James but they also have the No. 1 draft pick Andrew Wiggins whom was compared to James before he even hit a college basketball court.
Wiggins is currently playing in the Las Vegas Summer League and decided to show off some of his skills during warmups including this 360 behind the back dunk.
Sidenote: There’s some whisperings that the Timberwolves want the Cavaliers to include Wiggins in the possible trade for Kevin Love so we might not see him with LeBron but the Cavaliers are reportedly unwilling to include him so we’ll just have to keep an eye on the situation.
Triumph the Insult Dog is probably the most underrated comic in the game. Watch as he goes to Queens to chop it up with an International cast of World Cup Fans. We couldn’t show this clip without including some of Triumphs other classics. Below Triumph takes on the extremely abusive staff at Chicago’s Weiner Circle and goes in on the fans waiting for the premier night of Attack of the Clones in NYC. Where my dogs at?
