Word of the Day

January 22, 2008

KBA: (kay-bee-ay) abbreviation. Kobe Bryant Assist. Imaginary statistical unit awarded each time a player’s missed shot results in an offensive rebound for a teammate.

Usage example: Kobe Bryant had a double-double last night: 35 points and 17 KBAs.

Word History: Another original creation of the Basketbawful Staff. The KBA is based on Kobe’s assertion that his many missed shots are actually “rebounding opportunities” for the other Lakers, which is, in reality, just a justification for his prolific ball-hoggery.
