19 Nov

nba_a_stephenson_d1_1296x729Ahh, Lance Stephenson…a.k.a.

Kobe has been around the block a time or two.  Much like Mr. Miyagi, Bryant has all these young whippersnappers trying to challenge him.  Miyagi showed he still had gas in the tank.  Kobe might not look as spry as he did some fifteen seasons ago, but he certainly still has what it takes to perform in the NBA.
