Kobe Bryant’s ESPN Show ‘Detail’ Is Cursing NBA Players


Kobe Bryant’s new show ‘Detail’ on ESPN+ has had eight successful episodes so far. Before the start of the show, ESPN described it with following words:


“In Detail, viewers will experience unparalleled game observations from Bryant as if he were one of the players featured in an ESPN game played the day before. As one of this generation’s leading basketball minds, Bryant will provide a perspective aimed at helping young athletes, players and coaches see the game in a different way.”


They missed out a key part though… that the show was cursed. Every player who was put in the spotlight and featured by the show has run into issues shortly after their episode aired. Once, or twice may be coincidental, but 7 times? I don’t think so.

Via SportingNews:

Episode 2: DeMar DeRozan’s Game 1 vs. Wizards

Resulting curse: The Raptors were swept by LeBron James and the Cavaliers in the second round.


Episode 3: Donovan Mitchell’s Game 1 vs. Rockets

Resulting curse: Mitchell and the Jazz lost to the Rockets in five games in the second round.


Episode 4: Jrue Holiday’s Game 3 vs. Warriors

Resulting curse: The Warriors defeat the Pelicans in five games in the second round. Holiday’s “Detail” episode was from New Orleans’ lone win of the series.


Episode 5: LeBron James’ Eastern Conference finals preview

Resulting curse: LeBron and the Cavaliers lose Games 1 and 2 at Boston.


Episode 6: Jayson Tatum’s Game 2 vs. Cavaliers

Resulting curse: Tatum and the Celtics drop Games 3 and 4 in Cleveland.


Episode 7: Stephen Curry’s Game 3 vs. Rockets

Resulting curse: Curry and the Warriors drop Games 4 and 5 against the Rockets in the Western Conference finals.


Episode 8: Jaylen Brown’s Game 5 vs. Cavaliers

Resulting curse: Brown and the Celtics lose Game 6, forcing a decisive Game 7 at home.



This leaves us with one question, or should I say concern?! Who will be next?
