Isaiah happy to be with Lakers

In his first game wearing the purp and yellow, Isaiah Thomas scored 22 points and dished out 6 assists.

Thomas made a statement that shouted, “I’m back.” It was nice to see a PG, that wasn’t scared to take the shot.
“I was brainwashed into being a Laker fan as a young boy. And Kobe has been my favorite player. It hasn’t hit me yet that I am a Laker. But when I do look at gear, my locker, my jersey, it’s like, ‘Dang. I always dreamed of it. It’s finally here.’ I’m happy to be here. I just want to put on a show and try to take over this city like I tried to do each and every other city I’ve been in.”

Lakers get Thomas and Frye, Nance and Clarkson gone.

The #Lakers surprised everyone with a huge trade with the Cavs. Fan favorites Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance were traded for Isaiah Thomas, Channin Frye.

The Lakers also received the Cavs first round pick.

Magic and Pelinka were honest, stating they wanted to win championships and not be in 11th place.

Thomas was not happy with LeBron James and could be a mentor to Lonzo Ball.

With the NBA deadline only a few hours away, are Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson history?

The Lakers have Been winning lately in a season that the playoffs look doubtful.

One of the main reasons for the success is Julius Randle and his bully ball, down low banging.

Another effective piece is Filipino scorer Jordan Clarkson who never met a shot he didn’t like.

The core of Ingram, Kuz, Hart an the injured Ball have shown flashes if the future.

But the Lakers need shooters and two max’s they tell us. Isn’t that why the let DLo Go?

Magic and Pelinka about to either trade or play Poker face. Let’s win now.

Kobe releases Protro

Lot of us are thinking why is Kobe making sneaks that kook like they from the 90s? We all love the modern feel of the Kobes brand the last 2 decades.

This shoe goes back to the past, the 90s style leather, hightops, balling on hard courts.

“Protro is about evolution and improving on things that were,” says Bryant. “I wanted to build a business that wasn’t just based on things I have done in the past. It is important that the brand stands for performance and that everything we do is innovative, even if we are releasing shoes from the past they still must be built on performance.”

Kobe takes Kaepernick challenge for Charity

Kobe accepts Kaepernick challenge and gives 10K for Youth Service Inc. Charity in Philadelphia.

After being black balled by the #NFL for protesting police shootings of black men and systematic racism.

Kaepernick pledged to give a million to charity and has started social awareness campaign on police brutality and racism.

Kobe had mentioned if still playing he would take a knee.

Like Ali, Kaepernick has started a revolution with this heroic act.

Lakers young core learning as trade deadline approaches

The Lakers head to Brooklyn with a 19-31 record and no Lonzo Ball.

They face former Laker first round pick, D’Angelo Russell. The real question is, whether Randle or Clarkson, will be traded by Feb 8th.

The previous game against Orlando was a no show by the Lakers. As the Magic played a dispirited squad.

With 32 games left, fans hope the Lakers will give effort on the remainder of the season.

Probably during my second year [in the NBA]. It takes more time to keep those relationships going. I was just really obsessive about becoming one of the all-time greats. I just loved playing the game so much that everything took a back seat. But I had to make a choice. Once I made that decision, the game became everything to me.
