Kobe Bryant? Kobe who? It feels like he’s been out of the spotlight for quite some time. However, he reemerged and earned his style points at Richard Sherman’s celebrity softball game, hitting a quite impressive lefty home run in front of 22,000 people at Safeco Field in Seattle. It’s nice to see Kobe healthy and, along with the rest of L.A., I am extremely hyped about his return. But will Kobe be able to hit a “home run” in the league this year? It certainly wouldn’t be anything out of the ordinary.

I don’t know if the Maryland native ever leaves the studio aside from being on tour. The 24-year-old rapper already has four mixtapes out, the most recent of which — “Welcome To Forever” — has over half a million downloads. His first, and highly anticipated, studio album is set to drop later this year. Furthermore, his fanbase, the Rattpack, is extremely loyal, and with Logic this is a two-way street. He interacts with the fans, keeps them hungry, and provides incredible music. All of which are executed perfectly with this snippet from the album he posted on Instagram. Turns out it’s also the opening line to a “5 Fingers of Death” freestyle he previously did on “Sway in the Morning.”
Logic’s interaction with fans and consistent production of incredible music earn him his style points this week.

It’s not always about what you do but how you do it. That’s true in all aspects of life, but doubly so when you’re talking about sports and entertainment. Was 2Pac one of the greatest rappers ever because he sold boatloads of records worldwide? No. He was a global icon for what he stood for, for his passion, for everything and everyone he represented.
Each week in Style Points, we’ll count down recent people who took their game and their swagger to another level. Whether it was dropping weight and turning a new page, becoming a Germany legend or pulling off the biggest homecoming in sports history, these seven went above and beyond. (Hint: They’ll be lots of ESPYs coverage here.)
