With the LA Lakers winning the NBA Championship, many are saying Kobe Bryant’s 5 NBA Championships and 2 MVP finals titles rival the Great Michael Jordan.
But Jordan’s son Marcus Jordan disagrees. Marcus took to his Twitter saying: “NO ONE… and I mean NO ONE should ever com par kobe Bryant to my dad an say that he is anywhere near close to my dad He’s jagging this game (SIC).”
*Jordan has 6 NBA Championships and 6 NBA FInals MVPs… not to mention the movie Space Jam.
Last night the LA Lakers beat the Boston Celtics 83-79 in a close Game 7 matchup. It is the sixteenth championship the Lakers have won, not to mention a back-to-back title. Kobe Bryant took home his second straight Finals MVP, but Lakers coach Phil Jackson, who won his 11th title, said the MVP of the night went to Ron Artest. Artest helped the Lakers come back from a 13-point deficit and scored 20 pts.
The night was not just about the players but the jersey chasers too! Lamar Odom’s wife, Khloe Kardashian took to her blog saying:
“When the team was presented with their Championship t-shirts, hats and trophy, I was literally bursting with pride. I even cried of happiness. Seeing that huge smile on Lamar’s face seriously melted me — I will never forget that moment! It’s embedded in my mind forever and I am so grateful for this experience. The people, the confetti, the screams, the tears of joy! Such an amazing feeling.”
Now that the Cleveland Cavaliers failed to get Tom Izzo as their head coach in order to lure LeBron James into resigning with the team, it is now time for Plan B. Fans preformed a Flash Mob dance at the Tower City Mall on Thursday. The purpose was to “Keep LeBron in Cleveland” and was organized by Greater Cleveland Sports CEO David Gilbert. 200 boys and girls from Cleveland and Akron Boys and Girls clubs were apart of the Flash Mob.
Today is also LeBron James Appreciation Day in Ohio. A rally is being held in LeBron’s hometown of Akron.
No word yet if the Flash Mob worked…. or if LeBron even knows about it.
Trautr.com handed out over 5,000 Khloe Kardashian masks to Celtics fans, but it was not enough to knock the Lakers off their game. LA took Game 3 winning 91-84 as they lead the series 2-1.
After lackluster performances in Games 1 and 2, Kardashian’s husband Lamar Odom had his best performance of the Finals with 12 pts and went 5-5 from the field.
Before the NBA Finals, Odom revealed he was worried about Boston fans’ hostility and did not want his wife attending games in Boston. Despite the 5,000 Khloe Kardashian masks, the real Kardashian was in NY who appeared on Letterman to promote her upcoming E! Reality series, “Khloe and Kourtney Take Miami.”
Similar pranks have been used for famous jersey chasers like Kardashian. In 2007, RuinRomo.com passed out Jessica Simpson masks. Red Sox fans made Madonna masks for A-Rod’s high profile romance with Madonna in 2008.
