Last night was perfect. There was so much quality hoop to be seen, it was easy to kick back and rest up for tonight¿s impending food coma. The Dallas/Detroit game was getting tons of hype, as if the , statistically the League¿s best defensive team, might be able to put an end to the Mavs¿ undefeated streak. Didn¿t happen. Big D dropped the hammer in Motown, rolling 102-82. was ridiculous, going for 42. The didn¿t have anyone who could even slow him down. He hit 40 with 10 minutes left in the 4th quarter. At the same time, Kobe was locking up with T-Mac in O-Town. They were both off the chain, each scoring 38, and it seemed like every shot either one of them made was superhuman, like they were trying to outdo each other. The lost and afterwards, KB8 was peeved. "I'm not happy with the way guys are coming off the bench and their heads are not in the game," Kobe said. "If you're going to come off the bench and spell a player for five minutes, you can't have mental lapses." Then he went after , who just went on the injured list for a sore back. "He is not hurting any more than I am," Bryant said. "I am out there playing, and he should be, too." Good way to make friends Kobe. Calling out your teammates in papers comes right after shooting every time you touch the ball. AI gave the 36 as the Sixers remain undefeated at home. That means the top 3 scorers in the League — Kobe, T-Mac and Allen — all went for 30+ last night to keep things tight. The Celts may have beaten the , but ¿Toine only scored 13 after going scoreless in the first half; the first time that¿s happened since his rookie season back in ¿97. It¿s not like the dude didn¿t play either. ¿Toine ran for 47 minutes and took 17 shots. The Preseason NIT was sick too, with 2 major upsets. Carolina, the youngest team in the country, upset No. 2 Kansas and knocked off No. 7 Florida. That¿s all fine and good, but the most important thing that came outta the college games was ¿s - the Smack Gods¿ new favorite player. Two words: porn ¿stache. Speaking of porn, we read a report yesterday that Playboy is negotiating with Christina Aguilera to make her the first-ever non-nude celebrity featured in the magazine's history. Hmm. Then the question must be asked: What¿s the point? Do you want us to read? We¿re out like nudie mags that have girls with clothes on.
