As much as I'm not a fan of Kobe, I am pretty surprised he dropped all the way out of the Top 50. I mean the guy still is one of the best players in the game, and plays in one of the highest profile cities in the US, and is officially "the man" on the Lakers as he has always wanted. It highlights why I have problems liking this guy. He can play with the best of them, and is likely a future Hall of Famer, but his attitude/demeanor just stinks. A common trait in many professional athletes to be sure, just seems to be more visible with him.
Wolves are definitely in a nasty funk. Got beat (fairly soundly) by the Bobcats the other night. Bobcats? I know they are playing well....for an expansion team...but yikes. Hopefully they can right the ship here before too long, something isn't working.
