Will Kobe Bryant miss this Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game in Dallas‘ Cowboys Stadium? After missing the past two Lakers games, it looks likely. Kobe, who is known for his toughness and his ability to play through most injuries, will make the decision whether or not to play on the day of the game with the Lakers team trainer. With his current ankle injury, Kobe is having trouble pushing off of his left foot, making his jump shot much weaker and less accurate, not to mention hindering his lock down defense. The recent injury-caused benching broke a 235 consecutive games played streak for Kobe, who hadn’t missed a game since 2005. How Kobe‘s possible-absence will affect the attendance at Cowboys Stadium, which is will blow the all-time attendance record for an NBA All-Star Game out of the water this weekend, remains to be seen.
Last week, Lil Wayne was allegedly ejected from a Miami Heat game while cheering for the Laker's Kobe Byrant. The claim was made via Weezy's Twitter account although a representative for the Heat denied these accusations, claiming that Wayne made the decision to leave the game on his own. Now, Wayne is making headlines for badmouthing the team during an All-Star Weekend event, even going as far as making personal attacks against Chris Bosh and other team members.
KRNDN, formerly Krondon, of Strong Arm Steady lets lose his first solo studio album, Everything's Nothing, for Free99. Despite being the same person, KRNDN's spelling change has also brought forth a change in sound. The mood of this Free LP varies greatly from what we've come to except from KNRND; there's an absence of the West Coast boom-bap sound that SAS has become known for, as the instrumentals tend to be a little more futuristic on this release. Everything's Nothing features production from the likes Cardo, DJ Khalil, 321 and DJ Dahi. Hit the jump for the track list, previews and the download link.
