Kobe Bryant on Kimmel in 2010

My Charlotte Hornets drafted both Kobe and Adam Morrison; although, neither became a star in Charlotte.. both won a ring in 2010. Here is Kobe being a great teammate…

Here is Shaq on Kobe… Seeing the 7-footer cry about a super-human dying seems surreal.


College Basketball January 29th Predictions

70-62-2 on NCAAB last season up 8.95 units

35-27-1 this season up 25.59 units

Davidson -4.5 at -110 for 4 units. As a VCU grad, I follow the A-10 closely. Davidson and GW may have similar records, but Davidson are the better team. GW’s first year coach, Jamion Christian, has GW on the right path, but Davidson cover tonight. Davidson’s defense has been great over their past 3 games. The Wildcats shoot better as well. Similar rebounding stats. Going with the better shooting team with the hotter defense. Pretty simple. Gunmundsson (Shoutout Gundersen on Hell on Wheels), Grady, and Mike Jones Who? Mike Jones. Who? MIKE JONES will all work GW.

Wake Forest +10 at -120 for 2 units. I watched some of the Virginia/Wake Forest game and Andrien White looked damn good for Wake. If he stays that hot, Wake cover easy. Also, I like betting on teams after they play UVA. Someone look up the ATS record of teams the game after they play Virginia please..

Seton Hall -9 for 2 units. Seton Hall is a better defensive team than Depaul. Depaul’s free throw shooting has led to them not covering in a couple games they should have this season (65%). Seton Hall are 5-1 ATS in home conference games this year. 8-1 at home ATS this season. The over has hit in 3 of the last 4 for both teams. Seton Hall won by 8 in this matchup a month ago.

Northern Iowa -10 for 2 units. Just love Northern Iowa. If you have been reading me… You know Northern Iowa and William & Mary have made me good money this year. Fading UNC too. Those have been my 3 honey holes all year until NC State decided to not try against their Rival Tar Heels, but I digress…

Arkansas -6.5 for 2 units. South Carolina can’t make free throws or shoot from deep. Arkansas has the perimeter advantage and enough of a presence down low to slow SC.

Michigan State/Dayton/Louisville/Notre Dame ML Parlay risking 3 units to win 2 units. Nothing sexy about this. Just think all 4 teams win.

Miss You Kobe

I haven’t wrote an article in about 8 days. I have been having a silly good year gambling wise, but was traveling for a couple days and then the Kobe news broke. Every time I would get on to write, I would watch Kobe videos/highlights/interviews instead. The ones of Shaq and Jerry West talking about Kobe on Inside the NBA last night was incredibly sad.

I will do a full Kobe write-up after the Super Bowl. I think it is the saddest death in sports history. Nothing really comes close to me. Kobe dominated being a great father like he did the NBA basketball court. I know he would have done phenomenal things post-basketball. I would have bet the house on it. He was already well on his way.

RIP Kobe, Gianna, John Altobelli, Keri Altobelli, Alyssa Altobelli, Christina Mauser, Payton Chester, Sarah Chester, and Ara Zobayan.
