The Lakers are for real, fa real! After S. watched them easily dispatch the Suns, the Stankoniforous One is starting to take notice. Now it could be that the Suns have finally fallen off, which is entirely possible. S-dot’s gut tells him that the Lakers have finally come together. The most important move the Lakers made was to jettison Smush Parker and let Jordan Farmar do what he does.
Imagine how much better they will be when all their guys come back? Imagine how much better they would be if they had not dealt Caron Butler for….wait for it…….Kwame “MJ told me to man up” Brown.
Right now the Black Mamba is saying all the right things, but keep in mind that his contract is due to expire in the near term. Maybe his agent or his mama or his wifey told him to just play through this season and then run like Lola to a new destination. The distraction caused by his earlier trade demands already put Scott Skiles on the unemployment line, while the Knickerbockers are the crazy uncle you hide when company comes over. You can’t rightfully blame the latter on Kobe though. Knicks been playin like diddly poo as Jim Mora would say.
