Basketball Fail of the Week!

As if I hadn’t already seen it all…. How is this forreal! That is the only question running through my mind… James Young, a Freshman out of Kentucky, makes an unbelievable shot while running out of bounds, a shot that he could not have duplicated in a million years – the only problem was that it was in his own basket!
On a blocked shot from the opposing team, James Young attempted to save the ball from going out of bounds and tries flipping it behind his back to one of his teammates as any teammate would… However, instead of the ball being received by another player, the ball ends up going into his own basket and counting as 2 points against his own team! Incredible!

Kobe may test free agency

20131025-193730.jpg

At the bottom of T.J. Simers’ article on Kobe Bryant is an interesting blurb about how the Lakers may choose to handle the five-time NBA champion’s expiring contract.

Per Orange County Register:

He becomes a free agent at the end of the season, and Jim Buss says because of the pay structure of the NBA, the Lakers will allow Kobe to become a free agent.

He says he has talked to Kobe and believes they have an understanding, Bryant waiting as a free agent while the team spends to upgrade and then using what is left over to pay Kobe.

“We’ve probably talked,” says Kobe while being somewhat vague, “but I’m putting off any thought of that.”
