Part 5

Black Mamba

Somebody needs to take the National Geographic audio and dub it over a Kobe highlight reel.

Watch for the #2 dunk where Kobe does the behind-the-back dribble then reverse slam.

"What makes Kobe so unstoppable?"
The Most Valuable Puppets

Cam'ron & Mase High School Basketball

Future platinum selling rappers Cam'ron and Mase playing a championship high school basketball game somewhere in New York. Vague details.

The Slumdog Price is Right

This sort of summarizes what I saw in Slumdog Millionaire

Who is the ballest of them all?

The Orlando Magic topped the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals Game 1. The L.A. Lake Show closed out the Denver Nuggs in the Western Conference Finals Game 1. Both games were epically close and ESPN Classic worthy. 

And, both games featured teams that were respectively led by one of the five starters from last Summer's USA Olympic Gold Medal winning basketball team. 

Which star had the best Game 1 in their conference final?

Which teams will win their series? Who do you want to see duke it out in the NBA Finals?

Penny Hardaway

Back when Shaquille O'Neal was playing for the Miami Heat he compared his career with All-NBA guards to the Corleone brothers. Shaq said Dwayne Wade was Michael, Kobe Bryant was Michael and Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway was Fredo.

But, to really understand Penny's everlasting impression on basketball just have Craig Sager ask King Lebron James,

"You know I've never patterned my game after anybody, but I can receive flashes of Magic and some of Penny Hardaway one of my favorite players."

23 v. 24

Nike wants Bron v. Kobe.

"The Celtics, the little defending champs that could, won tonight on a Big Baby buzzer-beater. This might be the series that goes seven and really builds some suspense. But could it ever, really? There's a cloud of doom hanging over these games, like, sure, one team will eventually triumph, but neither one has a prayer of matching Cleveland. It's lambs to slaughter, and this foreboding makes it almost too painful to watch. Even if it goes seven games."

-Bethlehem Shoals

Unless of course KG comes back.......

Who was more clutch?

Carmelo Anthony's last second trey to beat the Dallas Mavericks and take Denver's series advantage to a 3-0 or Glen "Big Baby" Davis with the low-post J that tied the Boston Celtics-Orland Magic series at 2-2?

Blood flowing. D. Fisher and Ron Artest ejections. Two games in, the intensity in the split Houston Rockets - Los Angeles Lakers series has been raised to an all new plateau.

He saw someone get stabbed with a lead pipe through the heart?

Japanese filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki has a new film, adapted from Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid, coming out in the United States this Summer. 

To give you some perspective /Film says Miyazaki is the Japanese equivalent of Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg combined. Both Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away won Picture of the Year at the Japanese Academy Awards and Spirited Away won the 2003 Oscar for Best Animated Feature.

Cate Blanchett, Tina Fey, Matt Damon and Liam Neeson are among the English voices that will dub over the Japanese film.
