The Z List - This Week's Biggest Losers 06/02/07

6/2/2007 4:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kobe BryantMeteorologically speaking, this weekend marks the official beginning of "June gloom" in Los Angeles, a period during which each day begins with a deep fog. But some celebs chose to get an early jump on the foggy phenomenon.

Kobe Bryant: During a week when Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James logged one of the greatest playoff performances in NBA history (as well as classiest post-game press conference), KB went public with his whining and clanged one off the respectability rim not once, or twice but ... oh hell, who's counting anymore? It all ended with Lakers owner Jerry Buss making time (before his annual vacation in Italy) to assure his star that all efforts will be made to turn the team into a contender again. And sure enough, rumors were flying at press time about a possible trade involving Indiana Pacer Jermaine O'Neal. But wait ... does Kobe really want to shack up with another guy named O'Neal? Doesn't he remember what happened last time, all of this week's Shaq rift denials notwithstanding?

Al GoreAl Gore: With Lilo banking PSA, coke and DUI headlines, and Paris booking stylists for Tuesday's prison premiere, and Britney allegedly barfing up a storm at Sky Bar, the former Vice President's plea for headline news sanity has been resolutely drowned out. Gore has been hot and heavy on the talk show trail to promote his new book, "The Assault on Reason," bemoaning the fact that Hollywood meltdowns are a hotter topic than global warming. But until Lilo crashes a Prius, Paris sews her own hemp clothing, and Britney recycles her shorn hair, all those disenfranchised young voters aren't going to have any reason to care about reason. At this point, the only thing that might be able to trump the terrible trio is a Gore-DiCaprio ticket.

Michael CiminoMichael Cimino: With another Cannes Film Festival now in the books, determining the biggest loser is pretty much a "merde shoot" (that's our informal translation of crap shoot). Was it the corps of international journalists that Roman Polanski took to task for their dumb questions at a press conference, bolting for lunch after blaming "the computer" for their low critic IQ? No. Was it the anti-Michael Moore blogger who found out for sure that his nemesis was the one responsible for anonymously paying for a year's worth of health insurance? No. For our francs, the biggest loser was "Heaven's Gate" auteur Michael Cimino, whose three-minute contribution to a special 60th anniversary compilation film was roundly booed by those low IQ critics. Might be time for the 68-year-old auteur to park it in the south of France year-round.

stewart copeland Stewart Copeland: The Police drummer has a thing or two to learn about 21st century fan coddling. After the band's second arena concert performance in Vancouver, where the reunited group kicked off their gargantuan, sold out world tour, Copeland logged on to and sent out a careless S.O.S. He dubbed the Wednesday GM Place performance "lame," and instantly sullied the memories of that night's 20,000-plus fans by trashing the group's off-kilter performance of many of its greatest hits. "Screw it, it's only music," Copeland wrote, but tell that to the folks who forked over major Canadian coin to B.C. scalpers. Here's a tip, Stew: after tonight's concert in Edmonton, stay away from the laptop.

eminem Eminem: With the lingering unpleasantness of a second divorce from his first wife, the rapper got bitch-slapped this week by none other than the Thing of Pop. Thanks to a deal through Sony/ATV, Michael Jackson is now part-owner of a $370 million song catalogue that includes several by Eminem. While Jackson may think that a cover version of "The Real Slim Shady" is the perfect way to get back at Eminem for making fun of him once upon a time in "Just Lose It," we still think it's not as bad as the idea of these two teaming up for a ghetto remix of "Ivory and Ivory." They say bad luck comes in threes, so after this and the Ducks dumping the Red Wings, Detroit might want to get ready for the Pistons getting bounced out of the playoffs on Sunday.

He's the top scorer, but remember when he joined the Lakers how it fell apart. Shaq left and then Phil Jackson. I think it had a lot to do with Bryant. He's so full of himself it becomes a drag on the "team" as that is what Kobe thinks he is for the team....the coach, the everything....and since he's been the top scorer he feels he can't "carry the team" like he used to. Especially without Shaq and Jackson. He's full of himself and as talented as he is, not likable at all. If he leaves it will hurt the Lakers, but hopefully it will open the way for those who left to come back and find a Kobe replacement. He's a drag on the's a double edged sword, but whoever gets him has to make way for the huge ego He takes the T out of "team" replaces the e after m and takes out the a. It spells "me" It's all about Kobe!!!!!!!

Democrats are evil    

Kobe Bryant is a definite loser and because of that, so are the lakers. This guy had no graditude when he was teaming up with Shaquille. Had he been a team player, the Lakers would have been an undeafeatable power in history. His childish behavior said otherwise and now he's a wannabe just like the rest of the league. I have no sympathy for him at all and I could care less if the lakers retain him or not. He really should be in jail serving time for his criminal behavior. And to think what could have been had he been a quality individual. The Lakers made a huge mistake by choosing him over Shaquille O'Neal. Today's athlethes are not worth a dime anymore.

Kobe you were not going to sign your long term contract unless the lakers got rid of Shaq,you got your wish so shut the f up and stop winning like a little b. You keep taking 35 to 45 shots a game and scoring 50 or more points a game and watch your team lose.When Shaq left your chance of winning another championship left with him. The laker fans should bend your ass over a chair and give you what you deserve.

Jackson has not had the last laugh because Eminem's
Company--8 Mile must sign off for anything of commercial use. Where is Jackson's
money coming from? Why haven't some of the alleged victims of molestation and their
families come forth in civil court? Cobey Bryant is a whiner, and has never had to pay
for any of the consequences of his alleged rape or spoiled and undedicated attitude
toward his team or his fans.

He's a good player, but greatest in the NBA? Bitch please.

He's an arrogant selfish player & although his talent would make any team want him, nobody wants to put up with a drama queen who doesn't understand that it's a "team" not the kobe show.
