Kobe Tells SI Lakers Will Make Playoffs

Well you have to give Kobe Bryant credit he has a lot of confidence in himself and his team it seems. In an interview for Sports Illustrated Kobe Bryant tells the magazine that the Lakers will make the playoffs and he fears no team in the Western Conference. Is this idle talk or does Kobe really believe that his team is going to be that good later this season.

Now I will agree with Kobe Bryant that the Los Angeles Lakers will make the playoffs, but that is as far as my predicting will go with them. Yes, the Lakers have Kobe, but that is all really. Dwight Howard cannot be counted on and you do not know what you are getting with Steve Nash on a nightly basis. Howard disappears in games and when you get to the playoffs that cannot happen.

I admire Kobe for his confidence, but in reality they will be a first round loser plain and simple. You just cannot turn it on and off when you want in the NBA. There are two many good teams in the Western Conference and the Lakers are just average at best Kobe.

Will Danica Crack Under The Pressure Of Being On The Pole

Danica Patrick has done something no other woman has done and that is get the pole for The Daytona 500. Now you have to give her credit no easy task for anyone and she did it and now all the weight is on her shoulders. I'm sure Danica wants to prove it was not luck and be in contention at the end.

Pressure is something that is tough to measure. Certain people handle pressure better then others do. Danica will find out the pressue at a Daytona 500 is sky high. Expectations are high for Danica since she took the pole. Getting knocked out the race early will be a very big disappointment for her. If she can handle the pressure she should do great in The Daytona 500.

Should The Boston Celtics Trade Kevin Garnett?

The Boston Celtics have been getting older for a number of years now and it is time to rebuild them. Now they have a few trade pieces and one of them happens to be Kevin Garnett. Do you trade a guy like Kevin Garnett or give him the respect he deserves for all the years he has given your organization?

There are really no easy answers to this question. Yes, you want to give Kevin Garnett all the respect he deserves and to retire as a Celtic. On the other hand it is a business and you must look out for business first. It's  tough call and no matter how it plays out someone will win and someone will lose.

If I was the Boston Celtics I would keep KG and let him retire a Boston Celtic because that is the right thing to do. It may not help your organization right now, but down the line you will be glad you did. Keeping KG in Celtic green right now makes perfect sense, but will they listen or do what is best for business. I guess we will find out very soon.

Dwight Howard And Kobe Bryant Headed For A Rough Break-up

No matter what anyone tells you Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard will never be on the same page. According to various reports the relationship is rocky at best. Another report has Howard making fun of Kobe in the locker room during the All-Star game. Now I do not know if any of these reports are true, but one thing is for sure they have a bad vibe going on the court for sure.

Shaq and Kobe could not get along and I think they actually probably could have made it work. Howard and Bryant have no chance of making it work. I think the Los Angeles Lakers should consider moving Dwight Howard as quickly as they can. They still have a shot at the playoffs, but not as long as they are on the same team. Trading Kobe is not an option, so I would move Dwight Howard.

For the Lakers there is no guarantee that he will resign with the Lakers, so trading him is the only option left. If the Lakers want any chance of making the playoffs they must break up this marriage now that was doomed from the start. Kobe and Dwight are just not going to work and the writing is on the wall.

Derek Jeter Eyeing Opening Day Start

Derek Jeter is expecting to be in the starting lineup coming Opening Day 2013, and I would not bet against him. The Yankees captain has the willpower and dedication to get that done no matter what the odds are. Jeter has been one of the best Yankees ever to play and he may be on the downswing of his career, but he is still a valuable contributor to the team.

Even though he had ankle surgery look for the Yankees captain on the field when they say play ball. He has been working hard to get back and no matter his age of 38, he will be a vital part of the Yankees success this year. His biggest challenge is to get back into baseball shape and the sky is the limit for him after that. He will play a limited number of games this spring as the Yankees do not want to push him to much during spring training. Look for Derek Jeter at a ballpark near you soon.

Kobe Or Lebron? Michael Jordan Chooses Kobe

This is a debate that has gone on for a number of years now. Who would you rather have Kobe Bryant or Lebron James. For the most part Michael Jordan has kept quiet on which player he would choose until today. Jordan was on a radio station and answer the question Kobe or Lebron. Michael Jordan did say he would take Kobe over Lebron as five championship's beat one any day of the week.

Lebron James could win more then five before he retires, but that is not the case right now. Until James wins more championships Michael Jordan got it right. Michael Jordan is all about winning and right now Kobe has more championships, so it was choice. Jordan measures players by championships and Kobe has Lebron beat on that aspect. Down the road it could change, but for right now in Jordan's eyes he will take Kobe Bryant.

Michael Jordan Still The King Of The Court

Many players have been annointed the next Michael Jordan, but no one has come close to it, and I don't think anyone ever will. This week Jordan turns the big 50 and even at that age many people wonder if he could still lace it up and play. The truth is Jordan probably could still score and play for around 15-20 minutes a game. After that he qould not be much good to anyone.

Jordan still sells many pairs of Nike Air Jordan's every year. Michael is still as popular as ever and everyone still compares today's players to him when measuring players up. Jordan had such high standards it is not fair to other players. The truth is there will only be one Michael Jordan and that will never change. It is about time people quit comparing players to Michael Jordan. There is only one Airness and his name is Michael Jordan.

Will Kobe Bryant Finally Realize There Is No Hope For The 2012-2013 Lakers Season

I have to give Kobe Bryant for not giving yet, but I think he even see's the writing on the wall. Dwight Howard has been a bust in Los Angeles and it does not look like he will be turning it around anytime soon. Kobe is talented, but he can only do so much. Unless he gets some help quickly the Los Angeles Lakers have no chance of making the NB Playoffs this season. What options are left for Kobe Bryant?

 Kobe knows he has very few options left. He does not want to alienate his coach or players on the team, but losing is so etching he cannot stand either. The Lakers superstar has a real tough decision that he must make. Should he stay quiet or be a real vocal leader. No matter what decision Kobe Bryant someone will not be happy that's for sure. Bryant must decide what way to go and he must hurry. Each loss puts the Lakers further outside a playoff spot. Kobe hates losing, so do not look for him to take it much longer.
