I couldn’t stop laughing after watching this. I don’t know what’s more funny John Wall’s reaction or Javale all out sprinting. No wonder why this team is the worst in the league.
Kobe Bryant made a visit to the University of California-Santa Barbara where he answered questions for students in a psychology classroom. At one point, Bryant was asked about his only MVP award in 2008 and he used it as an opportunity to share a story about former teammate Kwame Brown. Brown, the No. 1 overall pick in 2001 by the Wizards’, was traded to the Lakers for Caron Butler in 2005 and played 2 ½ seasons in Los Angeles, where he was often booed at home games. His career fell well short of expectations. Bryant offered a glimpse into how a lack of confidence contributed to his early struggles in his career in a very funny story of Brown’s final game as a Laker. Here’s the video of the conversation.
Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton was arrested by the FBI Monday night at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana because of his alleged involvement in a fatal drive-by shooting in Atlanta, according to a report in the Associated Press. Crittenton planned to take a red-eye flight to Atlanta to turn himself into authorities before proclaiming his innocence. Before Crittenton could board his flight, he was taken into custody.

Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton is currently wanted for murder. He has been charged in the fatal shooting of 22-year-old Jullian Jones, a mother of four who was gunned down Aug. 19 on an Atlanta street. Crittenton allegedly killed Jones with shots fired from a dark-colored SUV, police said. Investigators don’t believe Jones was the intended target. Crittenton’s motive appeared to be retaliation for an April robbery in which Crittenton was a victim. He played 113 NBA games (including 22 with the Lakers in 2007-08), and was also a key piece in the trade to land Pau Gasol. Crittenton’s pro career was derailed by a gun-related incident involving Gilbert Arenas in the Wizards’ locker room during the 2009-10 season, leading to a lengthy suspension.
