Speaking of Kobe, Russell also put his amusingly accurate Kobe imitation up on display at the NBA rookie photo shoot in New York this summer, but although the 19-year-old has his Kobe impersonation down pat, he’s really hoping to pave his own path. “When people say ‘the next Kobe,’ there’s not going to be a next Kobe, there’s not going to be a next Michael Jordan. But, there’s something you can steal from all those players, stir it up and get what you get out of it. And, I want to be that player that’s the next D’Angelo Russell.” After the backlash he received when his complimentary Tracy McGrady tweet created a bit of a social media firestorm among die-hard Kobe Bryant fans, Russell was quick to clarify that he was by no means disrespecting Bryant. “I’m not disrespecting Kobe. No disrespect to anybody, there’s never going to be a ‘next one’ of those icons that you consider in this era.”

As part of Steve Ballmer’s ongoing process to put his personal stamp on the Clippers, the team is considering options for a mascot. While talks are past the preliminary stages, no decisions have been made as to the name, look or species of the mascot. A new mascot likely wouldn’t debut until midway through this season or the start of the 2016-17 year. The team has adopted a new logo, uniforms and color scheme this season, Ballmer’s second as owner.

Iman Shumpert: When a man loves a woman how she was born to be loved…procreation is the best blessing you can receive! I couldn’t be more happy than to share my first child with the woman I intended to have my family with. Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr is expected to enter this world “1.16.16”. We want that world to be as pure as possible for her. We people, show the world what we feel the world should see when we want them to see it…something this beautiful had to be announced when we were ready for everyone to know…this is what happiness grows into! I love you @teyanataylor thank you for your sacrifice in starting our very own family! P.s. I know you see my daughter with her hand behind her head and her feet kicked up…

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: This note from Donald Trump in response to my editorial is the best, though inelegant, support for my claims. Here again he attacks a journalist who disagrees with him, not by disputing the points made but by hurling schoolyard insults such as “nobody likes you.” But if you look behind the nasty invective, you find the assault still remains against the Constitution in an effort to silence the press through intimidation.

TMZ Sports has learned the NBA superstar was stopped at George Bush Airport in Houston on August 28th … when Dwight put his carry-on bag through the scanner, and a TSA agent noticed a LOADED GLOCK inside!!! Law enforcement sources tell us … a further inspection revealed the gun — a Glock 26 9mm — was LOADED with one round in the chamber. We’re told Dwight said he simply forgot the gun was in the bag. But multiple law enforcement sources tell us … because it’s Texas — and they have looser gun laws than states like California — Dwight was NOT ARRESTED. Cops were called to the scene, but we’re told he was allowed to give the weapon to an associate who took the gun out of the airport. As for Dwight, once he was disarmed — he was allowed to get back in the security line … and boarded his plane as if nothing ever happened!

Though Excel Sports Management cut ties with Clarkson, the Lakers rookie guard also felt frustrated with the agency’s communication and conflicting information about marketing opportunities, according to a league source familiar with his thinking. Clarkson had worked with agents Mike George and Jeff Schwartz.
