Kobe Bryant may have passed Michael Jordan on the NBA's all-time scoring list Sunday, but former Indiana Pacers star Reggie Miller says that Bryant, now No. 3 on the list, doesn't come close to being the player Jordan was:
The quote came from "The Dan Patrick Show" Tuesday when Miller was asked which player was tougher to guard. Miller did add: "That is not shortchanging Kobe Bryant because he gave me my lunch pail, too."
The folks at Papa John's were a little overeager to reward Cleveland Browns fans for Sunday's game. The NFL pizza sponsor, which also sponsors the Browns, has a deal that if the Browns score a point, it's 50 percent off all online orders the next day.
The problem? The Browns were shut out 30-0.
The email below was presumably set to automatically go out to Browns fans Monday morning, assuming Cleveland would have scored.
It's not known how many fans got the message. At least two recipients sent photos of the email to ESPN, but one Browns season-ticket holder said he didn't see it in his inbox this morning, meaning that perhaps the mistake was caught.
At last check, the Browns were looking into how this happened with Papa John's.
Sunday was the first time the Browns were shut out since Nov. 16, 2009, when the team lost 16-0 to the Baltimore Ravens.
