Two days before MJ made a splash, Kobe spoke on CNN about Kobe is better without Dwight. Now that’s another story to tell. Put together this all- business and highly competitive veteran with a ringless goofball of a big man and basically you’ve got a situation where really, something’s got to give.
Luckily, Lala Land is a big market city and the Lakers pretty much have a lot of cash to spare. And now even without Dwight, even with a line- up that’s on the mend and an almost- retiring superstar, no one’s about to count the Lakers out.
