Kevin Durant is better at basketball than baseball

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant is a former NBA MVP, a guy who can do pretty much anything on a basketball court. But as we saw this weekend, while playing in Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman‘s Celebrity Softball Game, Durant’s outfield skills could seem to use a little work…

Kobe’s busy weekend in Seattle

By Jeff Case

Kobe Bryant has a documentary that will debut on Showtime in November in which he’ll address the Lakers’ disastrous 2013-14 season, his injury woes and other heavy topics that have been on the mind of the L.A. superstar.

While he’s gearing up for next season (and, no doubt, hoping for a better season than the last), Bryant was in Washington over the weekend and was quite the busy fellow. First, he stopped off at the Seattle Basketball Pro Am and visited with Jamal Crawford while he was there.

He also took part in a charity softball game thrown by Seattle Seahawks superstar Richard Sherman that drew more than 22,000 fans to Safeco Field in Seattle.

How did Kobe do? He just hit a home run …

Not a bad weekend, there, Kobe …

Nate Robinson Creates Super Bowl Preview In Snowy Parking Lot Using Pineapple

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Denver Nuggets guard Nate Robinson is a native of Seattle, and a huge football fan — he actually played football in college at University of Washington. He is also a vocal and avid fan of the Seattle Seahawks. Which means the last week or so may have been a bit awkward, as Robinson’s Seahawks prepare to play in the Super Bowl this weekend against the Denver Broncos. Still, Robinson can’t go against his hometown team, as he recently explained to the Denver Post

“Even though I’m with the Nuggets, I can’t go against the grain. I’m going with Seattle… Pete [Carroll] recruited me when he was the head coach at USC, and I actually gave him a verbal (commitment),” Robinson said. “I’ve been to a couple of practices this past summer, and Coach Carroll said that he’ll have me hoist the ’12th Man’ flag next season.”

If there was any question where Nate’s loyalties lie, Nate and his friends filmed a couple of Instagram videos that serve as an unofficial Super Bowl preview. These videos represent what Nate thinks Seattle’s defense (and New York’s weather) will make life like for Denver QB Peyton Manning. Also, these videos represent what life would be like if Peyton Manning was somehow forced to use a pineapple instead of a football…
