Congratulations to the Lakeshow on winning there 16th championship in franchise history. What was an ugly game up until the final minute and a half, turned out to be quite the thriller. The Lakers rallied back from a 13 point deficit after shooting a pitiful 27% in the first half. Kobe was not feeling it tonight, to say the least, therefore it was the supporting role that got it done tonight. Despite his 6-24 shooting, the Black Mamba pulled down 15 rebounds and distributed the ball well when the Celtics attempted to double and triple team him. I tip my hat to Queensbridge’s finest for the outstanding performance both offensively and defensively in the game tonight. Ironic how the man who got his first championship was the X factor in the game, let alone 6 years ago being suspended 73 games for The Malace At The Palace. It was an epic seven game series in which the NBA or the fans can ask for much more.

The original unveiling of the Nike Hyperdunks was the commercial where Kobe Bryant jumped over a speeding Aston Martin. Well, the time has now come to pay homage to the notorious commercial that paved the way for the Hyperdunks. Nike is set to release a limited edition Aston Martin Hyperdunk in honor of the infamous commercial. The Kobe Bryant x Aston Martin Hyperdunks floss a chrome and metallic silver finish with a red leather interior that is made to resemble the luxurious interior of an authentic Aston Martin. Kobe’s signature is imprinted on the inside of the tongue, while the outside of the tongue has Kobe’s name featured above the Aston Martin wings and the Nike swoosh. It is rumored that Nike will only unleash 500 pairs of these tailor-made kicks, but have yet to give a public release date. Hit the jump for more pictures of these sleek shoes. (more…)

While I am fully aware Tiger Woods brought all this negative attention on himself, I am a believer in second chances and that he can truly make amends to those he hurt. I think he sounded remorseful and looked embarrassed during his 14 minute speech on Friday morning. Tiger doesn’t stand alone as the only person who has had to make a Presidential-like mea culpa apology to the nation. To see other prominent figures’ apologies including those from Bill Clinton, Kobe Bryant, Mark Sanford and Eliot Spitzer, hit more. (more…)
