Michelle Rodriguez (@MRodOfficial) is an actress from San Antonio, Texas.
In the latest instalment of the “Forever is BIG” series. The dunk Kobe Bryant threw down in the 2002 Finals against the Nets on Todd MacCulloch is the moment frozen in time and recreated across the globe from street art to a video game avatar, to a wedding cake topper. Yup, those were the good ol’ number 8 days.
For terrible acting, flopping and being nominated for a Razzie. Tony Allen was fined $5000 for violating the league’s anti-flopping policy for his dramatic performance in Game 2 of the western conference finals. The good new is that he won’t be suspended for it. The bad news is that he might be cast for the lead role in the remake of Plan 9 from Outer Space.
To thank LeBron James for being awesome at basketball and sneaker sales. Nike commissioned this ill mural to commemorate LBJ’s fourth MVP award in five years. Set to stay up for a full year, the piece was unveiled during Miami’s Art Walk.
The black and white mural features the word “MVP” four times, multiple Larry O’Brien trophies, a futuristic depiction of LeBron about to slam and a host of other cool details. It also features a steel decorated “MVP” logo which sits at the edge of the sidewalk. See more of this piece below.
In addition to the $1M Kevin Durant donated towards helping victims of the Oklahoma tornadoes. Nike will donate another $1M worth of Nike products plus profits from the Oklahoma City KD V Elites sold on Nike.com between May 23 and June 15 will go towards Oklahoma Relief efforts. An initiative all sparked by KD.
Good lookin’ out Kevin Durant and Nike. Stay classy.
Leading up to and during the season, Kobe Bryant swore off “junk food” aka delicious food like pizza opting for clean eating (BOOO!!!) to sustain himself for the long season. The results, the Lakers got bounced from the playoffs and Kobe tore his achilles. Fail. Hard.
So it’s a good thing that Bean starting his offseason right with some pizza from Pizzanista! located in downtown LA owned by skateboarding legend Salman Agah who he took a picture with (above) that also included awesome artist Mister Cartoon, and the owner of Element Skateboards Johnny Schillereff.
If you’re a Lakers fan, this picture should make you extra happy. Why? Cause Kobe Bryant eating pizza means 81-point games, MVP trophies and championship rings. Kobe Bryant anti-pizza means a terrible season, injury, and a first round exit for the Lakers in the playoffs. So prepare for an amazing season with extra cheese LA.
