In case you missed it yesterday, we posted a new video of Kobe Bryant "performing" a surreal stunt. After jumping over a car last month, this time, the MVP jumped over a pool filled with snakes. And he's even claiming the video is real. Meanwhile, his wife has been just as busy, allegedly cursing out a reporter and threatening to sue a Web site that has made a damaging accusation against Kobe.
When you see stories all over the place that say "Tennis star to appear in Playboy," two words immediately go through your mind -- Anna Kournikova. But, of course, that would be too good to be true, so we'll have to settle for Ashley Harkleroad, who'll be in the August issue. The Big Lead uses this news as opportunity to look at past athletes who have appeared in the men's mag, and potential Hugh Hefner targets. Meanwhile, FanIQ would like to see these five relatively unknown players go down the same road as Harkleroad.
