Dear Kobe

Dear Kobe, I still remember my earliest memories of watching you play for the Lakers.

CP3 and OKC have a common goal: Why can’t they acquire it together?

A Lake Show: Lakers handle Thunder 125-110

BOX SCORE: After such an entertainingly decisive win over the Houston Rockets on Thursday, the Thunder laid a complete egg against the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday night. That doesn’t sound so bad, considering the Lakers are the No. 1 team in the Western Conference and have Lebron James and Anthony Davis on the roster […]
