Little details make a big difference.
Kobe on "embracing" his role as a villain. http://t.co/hWJMZ69z6A
Kobe was asked if he knew how close he was to MJ when he stepped to the free throw line: "Yeah. I can count."
Lost amid the Kobe party was another inspiring effort by Shabazz Muhammad. 28 pts, 9 rebs, 1 bad ankle, 1 bad back. A fighter
Kobe on MJ's HOF speech. "it scared a lot of people, right? ... U can't get to a supreme level w/o channeling the dark side a little bit."
Kobe: "...what's inside of a person to compete and be at that high level. It scares a lot of people that are comfortable being average."
Kobe: "I think the competitive nature is something that frightens a lot of people when you peel back ... "
Kobe was absolutely fascinating to listen to after the game. His stuff on competitive fire (to follow) is riveting.
Kobe on Wiggins: "like looking at a reflection of myself 19 years ago"
Kobe seemed discombobulated afterward by reception & presentation, said "I'm used to being the villain" on road, appreciated the gesture
Kobe: I ain't used to being appreciated like that on the road." Was serenaded with chants as he left the floor
It's a final: Lakers 100, Wolves 94
The full Michael Jordan statement released to AP: http://t.co/BqyO3DIjLn
23 points, 7 boards for Muhammad in 20 minutes. Look out, MJ. He's coming for you too
Michael Jordan: " ... over the years, and I look forward to seeing what he accomplishes next.”
More Jordan: "...and has an equally strong passion for the game of basketball. I've enjoyed watching his game evolve ...
Statement from Michael Jordan: “I congratulate Kobe on reaching this milestone. He's obviously a great player, with a strong work ethic ..."
I know it wasn't a record. But still a special night when Kobe passes the ultimate icon in the ultimate individual statistic.
Two points away
Wiggins goes to bench and Kobe finds room to work.
Every game. Muhammad does that every game.
Kobe 0-for-3 early and Wiggins going right at him on the other end.
Mo Williams won't play tonight, btw
Wolves also plan on honoring tonight Gophers coach Jerry Kill for Coach of Year award & Citrus Bowl appearance. They'll give him a 14 jersey
Wolves plan to have Glen Taylor present the ball to Kibe after -- if? -- he gets his 9th point tonight while video tributes play on board
Ronny Turiaf will have surgery on Tuesday. Seems like a real chance he doesn't play rest of season
Flip says Turiaf is headed to NYC for hip surgery, said don't know if that means "a while" or the season
We will be in Sec 124 at tonight's Wolves vs Lakers game signing calendars. Stop by at HALFTIME to get yours! http://t.co/yhV4X0R5Ro

Bryant amongst many others (2/2)

Nice win for the Bucks. Didn't lose their cool when Clips tried to bully them. 12-12 now.
Mike Conley... I love this game.
Congrats to the ducks for there heisman guy tho
Clippers getting RRRREEALLL chippy. Trying to get in the young Bucks' heads. Kinda working.
Can I get behind the Bucks playing Lionel Richie "All Night Long" after every bucket from Brandon Knight. Yes. Yes I can.
