Animals = always a good thing. (TK)
--Mark Kiszla is baffled by the Chinese love Kobe Bryant is receiving during these Olympics. Shoals and I were all over this over a year ago, but this adulation is definitive proof that, despite his flirtations with the Chosen People, Kobe is totally Asian. (BR)
--Can someone explain the T-wolves reference to me in this new Ludacris/T.I. song? Luda says:
"The first round draft pick - later for you imbeciles / The car is all black like it got traded to the Timberwolves"
Is the car all black because being traded to the Timberwolves is like being sentenced to death?
Is the emphasis more on the "first round draft" aspect of the line? Like how the Wolves always have first round picks?
Certainly he can't be referring to an all-black line-up given that the Wolves went out and copped Kevin Love and Mike Miller as their two major off-season acquisitions.
Update: Booo, I figured it out. Luda follows this line with "And I keep a little bit of that green up in the lining." so all he's doing is referring to the little-used black road jerseys.
Kobe video from Slate. The subtlety is lost on me. Also, at this point, isn't making fun of Kobe as easy as, making fun of religious people or yelling "F-ck Bush" at a hip-hop show? (sigh).
