The Lakers are slumping. Why? Nobody’s scared of these 11-14 Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe, you have to go out there and take the basketball game that you love and stick it right back to them! You did the right thing, when you scored 34 points against Philadelphia. And you won the game 111-98. When you have two seven footers like Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard on your team, you have to utilize them and see their strengths like it’s your strength. See that they ride piggy-back on your shoulders, Kobe, and see that you are leading this team to glory and to your sixth NBA title where you will be cemented in legacy for having more NBA titles than Shaquille O’Neal. This is the first two-game winning streak in a while, don’t be shocked by this. It’s December and there is still time remaining. They are just three games below .500 and need momentum now from doing this. They’ll need this win over Philadelphia to prove how great the Lakers are and this is Kobe’s team and Kobe Bryant needs to show that this is the basketball game that he loves and nobody can take that away from him.
