Create-a-Caption: And they say Kobe Bryant doesn’t play defense anymore

No, I'm not arguing. They're right. He doesn't. But from time to time, Kobe Bryant will still get in your face, as Klay Thompson learned. Which is fine, when he doesn't get inside your face. As Klay Thompson learned. (And then promptly burned Bryant to the rim as part of the not-nearly-as-close-as-the-final-score beatdown his Golden State Warriors put on Ol' Beansie's Los Angeles Lakers on Monday.)

Best caption wins a year's supply of Kleenex (not really). Good luck.

In our last adventure: Rick Adelman and J.J. Barea want to know if you want a piece of them.

Winner, JakeVozquel: The cutest is when Coach is mowing the lawn and JJ follows him in his plastic lawnmower.

Runner-up, deviljinttt: J.J. Barea gets called for flopping.

Second runner-up, Larry B: J.J. Barea translates Rick Adelman's American hand gestures into Spanish hand gestures.

A Special Commendation in Ruling, Jimmy Olsen Division, goes to Pulitzer Prize Winner, who informs us thusly: I was at that game. Barea was yapping all night and even on the sidelines. He finally got T-ed up which in the end as it turned out had some impact on the game. The Wolves later pulled closer but still lost.

As I have always said, a truly great C-a-C entry provides not mere laughs, but also *information.* Thanks, Pulitzer Prize Winner!
