  1. Kobe says his knee is “best it’s been in a long time”

    Maybe what Kobe Bryant’s knee needed was a little rest and some expensive, exotic therapy. His knee had been an issue the last couple seasons — it’s almost bone on bone. It’s why Kobe had surgery on it last summer, and why he had to have it drained multiple times in previous years. It’s why…

    Being rich has its perks. That essentially is how the two big exhibition games in the Phillipines last week that included Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Chris Paul and four other NBA players came together. It was because Filipino tycoon Manuel V. Pangilinan — called MVP by most — decided he wanted it to…

    We thought the best planking done by JaVale McGee was in the Hong Kong Airport. Which beat (barely) him in the grocery store. But he has topped that. Check out the video below from the All-Star exhibition games this weekend in the  Philippines. McGee drives and dunks, gets back to block a shot at the…

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks - Game Two

    They were having some fun over in Manilla. And making some nice dough. But mostly having a lot of fun. For a group of NBA stars, this was an exhibition and a chance to show off a little. Like this play, where Kevin Durant leads what we will generously call a secondary break, gets in…

  5. How intense are lockout negotiations? Fisher headed to Philippines.

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    We tried to tell you earlier that there are no meaningful negotiations going on between the owners and players, that everyone is playing a game of lockout chicken, waiting for the deadline to put pressure on the talks. Here is another sign just how little is going on — union president Derek Fisher is heading…

    Los Angeles Lakers v New Orleans Hornets - Game Three

    Kobe Bryant on his annual tour through Asia, promoting the game, himself and selling some Nike shoes along the way. And he’s the biggest NBA star in Asia because he has been doing this for years. How much do they love him in the Philippines? Watch the video below. Kobe laced them up for an…

    While the talks have been of a barnstorming tour of China, there may be another in the Far East first. Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose and Kevin Durant will be part of an exhibition game in the Philippines, according to the sports web site of TV5 in the island nation (via SLAM). The three stars will…
