NBA Legends by Kim MinSuk

With NBA Finals about to begin, let’s look back at some of the great players. NOTE: Yes, I included Jeremy Lin because he’s Asian. Whitey just can’t comprehend what he represents to us. He’s like the Bruce Lee of basketball.

Yellowmenace: The Slanted Eye on Asian Art

Haters can hate. But that will never stop the Black Mamba. “Hate me or love me, it’s one or the other. Hate my game, hate my swagger. Hate my fadeaway, my hunger. Hate that I’m a veteran, a champion. Hate it. Hate it with all your heart. And hate that I am LOVED for all the same reasons.” -Kobe Bryant


Blake Griffin was involved in an altercation though it hasn’t been stated I’m almost positive that the equipment staffer was Matias Testi who has been known to hangout with Blake and Deandre outside of work. I really want to know what started things because I’ve always thought Blake was some sort of pacifist. Or at least didn’t want any trouble because he’d hate to hurt his team by missing games with suspensions. Does he realize hitting a member of the Clippers staff can get in to that same trouble. Now he will be sitting out for a broken right hand for a number of weeks.
