Kobe Bryant Explains Why He Announced His Retirement Early

February 13, 2016
Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers were headed towards in awkward season this year, as they began the season not knowing if this would be Kobe Bryant's last or not. 

In November, Bryant shocked the league when he announced this would be his last season. Though it seemed like we would see it coming at the end of the season, it was still huge that Bryant made the move to announce his retirement early.

Announcing early also helps the Lakers, as they get a better idea of what to do this offseason and plan for the future. This is one of the main reasons why Bryant decided to announce his retirement early in the season, he tells Bleacher Report

“I knew what I was going to do, so why wait? I’m not going to hold [Lakers’] management hostage either, because they need to start thinking about what it is they want to do [after I’m gone]. And going through this entire season not knowing, that’s not fair. So if you know, let the world know and let them know.”

The Lakers suck this season, but it all worked out in the end. Bryant gets a well-deserved farewell tour, and the Lakers have the roster, cap space and draft picks to build for the future and become a championship contender again.

Did Kevin Hart Get Robbed in 3-Pt Contest vs Draymond Green? (Video)

February 13, 2016
Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Only a true wrestling fan can appreciate the work that went on during the entertaining 3-point shootout between Draymond Green of the Warriors and actor/comedian Kevin Hart.

The two have been paired in commercials leading into NBA All-Star Weekend, and it appeared that Green was supposed to destroy Hart in a scripted 3-point shootout that saw the NBA star overwhelm the tiny comedian.

Problem is, Hart may have actually defeated Green in a tight contest that could have actually been disputed in the end.

I counted 11 points for Green, and it appears that Hart scored 12 after watching the video four times. In the end, Green was still declared the winner.

Check it out below, and you be the judge:
