Kobe calls out Gasol and team: “I’ll kick everybody’s ass”

The Lakers lost again last night, and their performance has been so sub-par lately that hearing them lose is no longer coming as a surprise.

Hoopsvibe's quick call:  They are going to have to step up their game in a lot of areas if they want to be a competitive team in the Western Conference this season.

Tony Parker Blames Drake And Chris Brown If He Misses Olympics

Parker may be forced to miss the 2012 Olympics in London this summer due to the eye injury in received during the Drake vs. Chris Brown brawl.

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Don't blame anyone but yourself for being at that club player.

Parker's cornea was apparently scratched in the fight over pop singer Rihanna last week. The San Antonio Spurs guard underwent a surgery to remove a shard of glass that had "penetrated 99 percent" of his left eye, according to the Paris AP NEWS.

Initially, Parker downplayed the injury in the press, but now admits, "I almost lost my eye." He did not join the rest of the French national team Wednesday in order to continue treatment in New York.

Apparently, his ability to play in the Olympics this summer will be determined by his doctors. Parker's clearly not happy about the situation and wasn't going to sit around and do nothing, so he filed a $20 million lawsuit against Club W.I.P., the Manhattan nightclub where the incident went down.

As everyone knows by now, the fight was between Drake and Chris Brown over their previous love affairs with pop singer Rihanna. Rihanna cheated on Chris Brown with Drake, which apparently didn't sit well with Brown. Reportedly, Brown tried to put it all behind them by sending Drake over a bottle at the club last week, but Drake sent the bottle back to Brown with a note saying he was banging the love of Brown's life so get over it. Those aren't exactly the words peace is made with. 

The end result may be the bankruptcy of a NY nightclub, the French basketball team loses their best player, and two singers sell more records for all the free publicity. Oh, and Parker almost lost his eye too. Don't want to forget that. Here's to hoping Parker is really ok and playing ball in Londond this summer at the Olympics.
