Cuthbert is back and challenging Kobe

You may have noticed that your favorite alleged NBA player and ours, Billy Joe Cuthbert, is back to promote NBA ’07: The Life for Sony’s Playstation 2—and this time the failed NBA star actually has the, um, cojones to challenge Kobe Bryant to a game of one-on-one. You can check out Cuthbert’s Web site, including his press conference, here. No further word on the site about whatever happened to Jason ‘Sweet Money’ McDaniels and Sergei Vogavich, the two other faux, failed NBA rookies that were featured in the campaign for NBA ’06: The Life.
