With the entire country’s eyes fixed on them Lakers Nation responded did themselves proud, as they payed tribute – with heavy, but proud hearts, to two of their own – Kobe and Gigi Bryant.
With all due respect to the Los Angeles Lakers fan base, as you have clearly notice these few days, Kobe and his princess, not only had your hearts, but ours also.
Growing Up in Philly, our Coach took me and my Brothers to Lower Merion High to see Kobe play, before declare NBA. However the gym was pack and we had to settle for seeing him play on a TV monitor on another building. Coach was nevertheless so happy and fire up, the whole ride home kept saying to us,
“Jellybean’s son going be a great player!”
Sure! Kobe made some mistakes – as some incentive mother f*ers are quick to point out during this tragic time, but as the Holly Man once said,
“Let the one without any sins cast the first stone.”
It’s not about being right, is about doing right and decency.
No matter, which team you loyally follow, when push comes to shove the NBA Family will always back one of its own.
Through ownership-executive bad decisions, prizing out the average fan, celebrity commentators with their clueless self-serving agendas and too many other issues.
“We still here!”
Visionary, David Stern – may he always rest in peace () saw all of this coming a mile away and decided all the power needed to go back to the players because nobody was going to hijack his league, like other professional leagues have been.
At the end is just this simple,
“Every day that you open your eyes and not find yourself inside a whole of dirt with flowers growing on top of you, Is A Good Day!
May you and your princess always rest in peace, Mamba…”
