Like a lot of NBA fans, I went through the cynical thing with Kobe. The hate bandwagon was easy: Mr. Popular. Mr. Best-Dressed. Everything too good to be true. The best thing since Jordan. But after all the obstacles he’s faced—the media, the scandal, beef with his team (and ex-teammates)—you start to take inventory, and he’s fucking undeniable.

Dru Hill held a premiere party for their new reality show “Platinum House” last night in Atlanta and I have no words for the foolery. At least Jazz is still sane…and who is the new guy? And what is going on with Nokio? (Angie Martinez, please come get your baby daddy).
