I bought this card for only $6.50 last week. I’ve seen another one on ebay sell for around $10 so I had to buy this for my collection with a low price tag.

I traded away my last 10 Lamar Odom jersey cards for this nice lot. Two of the cards are going into my personal collection (Kobe Bryant & Joe Johnson). I also received a J.R. Smith card not pictured that I gave to my brother for his collection.

It’s my fourth Clutch Performers Joe Johnson Patch. Only 46 more to go if I want to collect all 50! I love the design of the Kobe jersey.

The other two cards are for trade.

Kobe Bryant Named Player of the Month For March

NBA released:

The Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant was named the Kia  Western Conference Players of the Month for games played during March.

Bryant averaged 25.8 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists, leading the Lakers to a 12-1 record on the month, bringing them within 2 ½ games of San Antonio for first place in the Western Conference. Bryant achieved several milestones in March, moving ahead of Moses Malone for sixth on the NBA’s all-time scoring list during a 26-point performance in a win at Atlanta on March 8, and passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the Lakers’ all-time leader in games played in a win over New Orleans on March 27. Bryant also tallied a season-high 42 points, to go along with 12 rebounds and nine assists in a win over Phoenix on March 22.

First time this season for Kobe, and 13th time in his career.

>Kobe Will Be Game-Time Decision

>

Kobe will be game-time decision tonight against the Orlando Magic:

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — The Los Angeles Lakers received a scare Saturday night in Dallas, when Kobe Bryant landed awkwardly on his left ankle with 1:52 remaining in the third quarter, re-aggravating an injury suffered two games prior in Atlanta and sending him limping to the locker room for evaluation.
He returned in the fourth quarter, but the injury, which he called a sprain, put his availability for Monday’s game against the Orlando Magic at Staples Center in question.

“He’ll be a game-time decision. We hope he’ll be able to play,” coach Phil Jackson said.

Hopefully this is not a serious injury that will affect Kobe come playoff time. I don’t know how many more injuries he can play through. The Lakers need a healthy Kobe, if they want to win another championship.

>Kobe Passes Moses Malone For Sixth All-Time

>

Kobe finished the game with 26 points and moved into the 6th spot on the all-time scoring list passing Moses Malone.

For the second night in a row, Moses Malone is in the news. First Kevin Love breaks his double-double streak and now Kobe passes him for 6th place.

It’s very unlikely that Kobe passes Shaq for 5th this season.

Here’s the updated list of the scoring list:

Kobe is currently at 27,423 points.

He’s passed a total of 6 players this season:
Moses Malone
Elvin Hayes
Hakeem Olajuwon
Oscar Robertson
Dominique Wilkins
John Havlicek

>Lakers Best Win Of The Season

>

Tonight’s game against the Portland Trailblazers was unbelievable. Overtime!
Kobe showed why he’s the best closer in the NBA.

AP:

Kobe Bryant had 37 points and the Los Angeles Lakers overcame a 10-point deficit late in the fourth quarter to beat Portland 106-101 in overtime Wednesday night, snapping the Trail Blazers’ season-best, six-game winning streak.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 29 points and 14 rebounds for the Blazers, but didn’t hit a shot in the fourth quarter and missed two key free throws in the extra period.

The Lakers hadn’t won back-to-back games in Portland since 2000. The Lakers also improve to 10-2 on the second night of a back-to-back.

While Kobe had 37 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists, he wasn’t the MVP of the game. Ron Artest played his best game of the season. He was 5 of 6 from behind the 3-point line. He finished with 24 points and 6 rebounds. He pulled down an offensive rebound in overtime that gave Kobe another chance to extend the lead.

Box Score: Lakers 106 Trail Blazers 101

Next Game: Friday, February 25th. 7:30 p.m. (vs. Los Angeles Clippers)
