After years of being a diehard Los Angeles Lakers fan... I started to lose interest in basketball during the Gasol years. The idea of buying NBA titles sort of left a sour taste in my mouth. Plus dropping basketball from my radar freed up time for baseball, football, and hockey.
But tonight I'm going to hop off the wagon for one evening and watch Kobe Bryant's final NBA game.
When it comes to #24... it seems like you either love him or hate him.. Me? I've always admired his passion and the way he approached the game. On any given evening, he gave his franchise, his teammates, and his fans 100%.... and expected the same in return.
I don't really miss basketball... but there's a part of me that's going to miss The Black Mamba.
Happy Wednesday and sayonara!
