Fear the Reapa

Smush Parker made his name on West 4th.

Originially published in SLAM Streetball 4

Smush did the NBA thing for a minute, repping the purple and gold. But his real bread-and-butter has always been the park—and the freedom it provides a PG like him. —Tzvi Twersky

    Smush was last seen talkin’ about Kobe a couple of weeks ago. Probably, in the park, too.

    Smush >>> Kobe

  • https://twitter.com/TheDiesel Anton

    It’s a simple misunderstanding. Kobe, having less street cred than Jerry Sloan, thought Smush’s name was a command and decided to act out the action with a girl in a hotel room. Silly Kobe, no means no.

    Wow, sweet shot.

  • Eric Tellez

    Yeah this is a nice pick. But there isn’t any way that this is replacing Kobe Vs Kobe on my desktop. Smush had a good run though…more power to him…

    Jerry Sloan owns the streets, Anton. Well, the ones in Utah. Amnd why so much hate on Smush? He only said what pleny of former Lakers have. Wait till Gasol is in a different uniform, he’ll say he hated playing with Kobe too.

  • WhaHuh

    I cant believe this guy made it to the cover of Slam magazine. He owes kobe

    Wow-looks like Slam had to fill some space on the site and 5-Hour Energy ads were already placed somewhere else.

  • chintao

    Great shot, but that’s obviously not W. 4th. Looks like L.A. Was this taken while he was having his cup of coffee with the Lakers?

  • S-Mc

    was the photographer on a ladder or something??

  • L33tSauce

    He owes Kobe? Are you serious? He made himself playing street ball, not next to the tyrant Kobe.
