The Knicks didn’t give the Cavs much resistance on the court on Wednesday, so LeBron James and Kyrie Irving decided to look elsewhere for a challenge. They found it, as many young people have recently, in flipping water bottles.
Kobe Bryant, who has helped the Lakers win five NBA championships over a 20-year career spent entirely in Los Angeles, announced on The Players’ Tribune website that he will retire after 2015-2016 season.“With 17 NBA All-Star selections, an NBA MVP, five NBA championships with the Lakers, two Olympic gold medals and a relentless work ethic, Kobe Bryant is one of the greatest players in the history of our game,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement.
The Warriors didn’t have their A-game from long distance on Wednesday night, but they still destroyed the Clippers, thanks in part to pristine ball movement resulting in wide-open looks like this one for Kevin Durant. The only one who didn’t touch the rock? Steph Curry, who was too busy celebrating the bucket before Durant even had the pass.
