MVPuppets: Sherlock Holmes was Black

December 12, 2009

So back in our collegiate days me and the blogman were forced to read Hound of the Baskervilles, and it certainly was not an action packed thriller starring Robert Downey Jr. nor Rachel McAdams, basically what I’m trying to say is that it was a stinky read. The latest MVPuppets commercial has a brother stepping into the roll of Holmes which I’m not sure to whom it is offensive, but I’m sure it’ll encompass some sect. I’ve also often postulated to myself whether Kobe is a consultant on these commercials because his actions seem to be spot on to his personality

The Puppets are Back

Another terrible, predictable, pooly mouth-to-word matched Kobe & LeBron puppets commercial….that is totally redeemed by “In the Jungle” at the last minute.

Kobe Supports World AIDS Day

December 3, 2009

This is a picture of a foot, but not just any foot, the foot of four time NBA champion of the world Kobe Bryant. While you could focus on the yet to be released White/Ice Kobe IVs that he is rocking, or the (red) shoe laces that he sports in support of world AIDS day which was Tuesday, I’ll pick a different aspect. Underneath that cushy, comfy, 10 dollar retail priced socked is a heavily taped ankle. What’s the big deal one might postulate, every well trained athlete should tape their ankle, and I would agree with you. But not every well trained athlete sponors a low top basketball shoe and professes that the defender will need “ankle insurance”. Nike would do well to keep that tape job hidden for fear of unearthing the concrete FACT that every John Q. men’s league player will sprain their ankles in these if not properly suported. Take it from a guy who lost to a team called the Yugoslovian Young Guns….it’s a fact.

Lakers Championship Ring

October 31, 2009

I really hope that clown Adam Morrison didn’t get one of these 30G, 15 diamond, Lakers Championship pinky rings. If you do the complex mathematics and multiply the 30 Grand by every member of the team, coaching staff and personnel, that’s a heck of a lot of money spent on diamonds and gold. I guess Didier Ilunga Mbenga just became the richest person in Africa.

Kobe Bryant x Nubeuo Black Mamba MVP Watch

October 21, 2009

If you thought winning the chip, and MVP honors was enough for Kobe in ’09 you’ve got another thing coming, actually 4 other things. Just released is a set of 4 watches designed in concert with Kobe to mark his MVP season. This isn’t a Sports Illustrated championship watch that you get with a year’s subscription, this is a collection that ranges in price from 25 to 285Gs. Kob is pictured with over 10 carats of black sapphires on and probably another 5 in his ear.
