Kevin Durant made headlines with a pointed critique of the way the NBA media has covered Kobe Bryant lately.
LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are up next for the Wizards on Tuesday, but the topic of Kobe Bryant is unavoidable. He'll play here on Wednesday, his last appearance in a L.A.
The speculation about Kobe Bryant's future is no more. He finally brought himself to admit the obvious Sunday: This season, his 20th in the NBA with the Los Angeles Lakers, will be his last.
This is shaping up to be Kobe Bryant's farewell season, though initially he wouldn't commit to such talk.
When it comes to MVP talk, it's never too early to speculate. Yes, the list will change a lot throughout the season but it's not just about how your start or how you finish.
