Which NBA Player are you: Kobe Bryant and Hillary Clinton

My favorite personal contribution to the magazine these days is a little column I write called Which NBA Player are you? where I compare an NBA player to a public figure who is not an NBA player, across five categories. When we went through the magazine re-design, that was the one area I really felt strongly about taking control of on the print side. Since the interns have come aboard, they’ve been working hard on getting lots of different stories from the magazine ready for the internet, so you can expect more content from the mag past and present on the site in due time – such as how we had Khalid’s Tony Parker story up right before he won Finals MVP.

For now, I feel the need to share this Which NBA Player are you because of the timing. KOBE has a video making the rounds. Hillary Clinton has a video doing the same. With the two videos making their way into the public realm within a 48 hour window of each other (or shorter), there is only one place to find the connection between the two.

Here it is. Enjoy. Whoever chose the photo of her in the Yankee hat for that particular comparison is a genius. And oh by the way, this was written and turned in before the trade demand in late May. Also, Hillary chose a Celine Dion song for her campaign. Boooooooooooooooooooo.
