Approaching a new season…!

Sometimes you must prioritize the success of the team ahead of how your own image is perceived. …It’s pushing them to find their inner beast, even if they end up resenting you for it at the time. I’d rather be perceived as a winner than a good teammate. I have nothing in common with lazy people who blame others for their lack of success. Great things come from hard work and perseverance. No excuses.

Just wanna wish a Happy 34th Birthday to Kobe Bryant. 
All I can think about is how sad I will be when it’s your last game as a Laker. Until then, I will make sure I go to as many Laker Home games as I can. Get that 6th ring!

Welcome!

“Well, it looks like Superman has found a home. I wish nothing but the best for Big Bynum. I hope he follows what was a great season last year with an even better one next year. I know LA is excited about the deal and rightfully so. The Lakers landed a piece that will hopefully carry the franchise long after I’m gone. I have spoken to Dwight Howard already and we are locked and loaded to bring back the title. Wow, what a summer Jimmy and Mitch have had so far. Unreal! I’m focused on our semifinal game vs Argentina but I had to pause for a few to send you my thoughts, in case you were curious..” —Kobe BryantYou know what they say, If you can’t beat them, join them.

I’m obsessed about it, I got to get it. It’s just one of those things. This is what I play for. I can think of nothing else.
