Last game for Kobe tonight. It didn't end well but what an amazing 20 years it has been as a Laker and Kobe fan. Since Kobe came in the league in 96 the Lakers went to the finals 7 times and won 5. They only missed the playoffs 3 times including this current season. So many great memories during that stretch. It would have been interesting to see how the last 5 years would have gone if Stern didn't overstep and cancel the CP3 trade.
It's been a pretty good stretch for me as a Laker fan. Since I was born the Lakers have been to 17 NBA finals and I got to watch some of the NBA all time greats in Magic, Kareem, Shaq and Kobe. Hopefully they can get back and track and get back in the mix soon. I like some of the young guys and we have a ton of cap room. I know KD likes LA!
