If You Aren’t Going To Be An NBA Champ This Year, You May As Well Throw A Sweet Party

What are we all doin’ tomorrow night? A little birdie tells me that Kobe’s having a par-tay!

And it sure ain’t to celebrate his Lakers’ mortifying loss on Wednesday to the Cleveland Cavs.

Rather, tomorrow the 5-time NBA champ, 2-time NBA Finals MVP, Olympic Gold Medalist and DISGRASIAN Hall-of-Shamer will receive an honor that no other athlete has ever received: cement prints in front of Hollywood’s Grauman’s Chinese Theater.

And before you any of you start grossing me out by wondering aloud how big those hand and footprints are (seriously, BLEGH) please allow me to direct our attention back to the far more important headline: THERE’S GONNA BE A RAGER! You too can attend, if you have $350 to $4,000 to spend on an evening in sorta-proximity to basketball’s most talented douchetool.

According to TMZ, this over-the-top, “Asian-themed” bash is not one to miss.

The party is supposed to be INSANE — with organizers dropping roughly $50,000 to give Boulevard 3 nightclub an Asian-themed makeover in honor of Kobe enshrining his hands and feet at Grauman’s Chinese Theater earlier that day. … including a 15-foot custom made dragon.

A CUSTOM MADE DRAGON! Pish. If we had 50 Gs to spend on an “Asian theme,” you bet your ass we wouldn’t party without:

The NBA playoffs just got a lot more interesting, now that Cleveland has pulled even in their series against Detroit, and LeBron James has finally woken up to the fact that he is a scorer, not a passer. Plus, I dig that the dude’s learning Mandarin.

But who I’m REALLY fascinated by in this series is power forward Drew Gooden, pictured on the left high-fiving James. Gooden, who is half African-American, half-Finnish, scored 19 points in the Cavs’ Game 4 win (hard to believe that I’m writing “Cavs” and “win” in the same sentence).

But I could care less about Gooden’s point-scoring prowess. It’s this part of his game that I find riveting:

I am not alone. The following question was posed to Yahoo! 7 Answers three days ago:
