Remember the Eva Longoria poster an opposing fan held up to distract Tony Parker in a recent San Antonio Spurs playoff game?

Or the Jessica Simpson masks fans utilized to rattle Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo during a key NFL contest last winter?

Well, get ready for a new iteration of this funny phenomenon.

With the NBA Finals starting tonight in Beantown, Boston Celtics fans are looking for any possible edge against the hated, visiting Los Angeles Lakers.

So they're making cutouts of Vanessa Curry - alleged mistress of Kobe Bryant.

Kobe Bryant has denied that the affair with Vanessa Curry, an ex-Laker Girl, took place. He quickly fired off a legal letter to the website that spread the rumor.

The site in question, TheDirty.com, replied that given Kobe Bryant's past indiscretions, a court isn't exactly likely to find the story libelous. It's also going to call a lot more attention to the supposed affair than it's already getting.

In any case, tune in tonight to see Boston fans holding up Vanessa Curry pics to try to get in Kobe's head. Will their tactic work?

Eh. Given that this guy played half a season while standing trial for raping a girl, we're guessing this is pretty small-time for Bryant.

Kobe Bryant stood tall last night as his Los Angeles Lakers took a 3-1 lead in the West Finals with a grueling road win at San Antonio.

Similarly, the website that claimed the NBA star had an affair with a Laker Girl named Vanessa Curry is refusing to back down under pressure.

Earlier this week, Bryant's lawyer fired off a letter to TheDirty.com, demanding that the post about Kobe and Vanessa Curry be taken down.

TheDirty claimed Kobe had an affair with Curry, 18, who has resigned her position with the Laker Girls - the Lakers' cheerleaders.



Kobe Bryant of the L.A. Lakers (left) prepares to nail a jumpshot. Bryant's lawyer is denying that Kobe nailed cheerleader Vanessa Curry, however.

The site's lawyers are firing back, claiming the story is in fact true, but even if it wasn't, "because Mr. Bryant has previously publicly admitted to similar acts of infidelity... it seems unlikely that any jury would find 'actual malice.'"

Kobe Bryant is known for being a complete dick tough competitor.

And apparently this egomaniac's star's behavior isn't limited to the hardwood.

Britney Spears wasn't the only celebrity at a club opening in Vegas Friday, as the basketballer and his wife, Vanessa, rolled up to the grand opening of BLUSH at the Wynn.

That's when Bryant saw poker player Antonio "the Magician" Esfandiari kick in for two bottles of $1,400 Cristal champagne.

According to sources inside the club, Kobe Bryant wasn't about to shown up - so he ordered five (then promised to take 50 shots every game this season).

Antonio, who's used to upping the ante, then switched his order to 10! Go all in or go home, as they say at the World Series of Poker!

Kobe Bryant ended this asinine display of hubris by purchasing an astounding 15 bottles - which he had no intention of drinking, as he promptly left the club.

Just to put Bryant's "baller" status into perspective - Kobe's $21,000 bill still doesn't cover what Charles Barkley drops on one hand of blackjack.

And just to put Kobe's suckitude into perspective, he may not electrocute pit bulls like Michael Vick, but there's not much positive to say about the Lakers guard, either.
