Kobe’s Legacy Was Re-Litigated Long Before Gayle King

Kobe Bryant’s legacy is a fascinating one. Here is this person I rooted against, basketball wise, for most of his career, while venturing in different Facebook sports groups and barbershops, trying to convince Kobe fans why he was overrated during his playing career. And yes, it seems petty now. But trust me, it was petty at the time. But me and Petty are thicker than thieves, so I have no remorse about that. Kobe’s rape allegation obviously goes beyond basketball. At the time, it was a big deal, and followed…

Baby Girl Wanted To Be Just Like Him

Kobe Bryant always had this look throughout his legendary career. This look was centered around what he coined as the Mamba Mentality. This mentality, which some can argue as being an unorganized religion, required you to work harder than everyone else in the room and be relentless at all times in order to accomplish the ultimate goal.

This NBA/China situation has been a complete shitstorm. The shitstorm originated from Rocket’s GM, Daryl Morey, tweeting solidarity for the Hong Kong protesters. It was a tweet which essentially expressed support for freedom, including freedom of speech and expression. As we know, China, the communist government, doesn’t fuck around. And one of their sore spots, for many years, has derived from Hong Kong, especially since the Great Handover of 1997 when the United Kingdom ended its crumpets and tea colonization of Hong Kong and returned control of the territory to…

The NCAA is Pathetic and the Rich Paul Rule is Proof

Originally, my debut post on BWNC’s wonderfully black site was going to be “Thanos: The Realest MF I Know”, but the NCAA had other plans. The National Collegiate Athletic Association decided it was time to put a stop to Rich Paul’s uncanny ability to make incredible business moves.  The NCAA implemented new criteria for what they’ll consider a sports agent and now requires an agent to have a Bachelor’s degree, a certification with the NBPA for a minimum of three years, and pass an in-person exam at the NCAA office…
