HE SAID WHAT?

“I felt violated. I felt naked.” — Kobe Bryant after wearing throwback short shorts Sunday when the Lakers played the Celtics

NEWSMAKERS

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

The perfect record is impressive. But it will feel hollow if they lose a playoff game.

BRIAN BILLICK

Turns out the last brilliant move for the Genius was signing that extension, so at least he will walk away with a pile of money.

BRANDON ROY

Second-year guard has entered the MVP race after leading Portland on a 13-game win streak.

DARREN McFADDEN

From the new car scandal to a quiet day in a blowout bowl loss, top back is probably NFL-bound.

EDDIE SUTTON

His chase of 800 wins seems a bit pathetic, his hiring by San Francisco a cheap publicity stunt.

TWT FIVE ” OLD STYLES THAT SHOULD STAY PUT AWAY

In light of the silly shorts worn by the Lakers the other night, here are a few other throwbacks to keep in the closet.

1. Rec specs: The only guy who has looked good in a pair of these is Kurt Rambis.

2. Chuck Taylors: Bringing these relics back would spur a rash of foot and ankle injuries.

3. Leather helmets: OK, it might be fun to watch … until someone got hurt … on your team.

4. Painters’ caps: When teams like the Pirates doffed these daffy lids, they looked ridiculous.

5. Sweaters: For both coaches and for hockey players. College football coaches are the only ones who can pull it off.
