These past two days have been nothing short of news. Let’s start things off with Wednesday.
¡Apparently Kobe Bryant decided to make a visit to our “friendly” neighborhood club MiX. Apparently, Kobe was just chilling, relaxing-enjoy a few tasty beverages. I don’t know what is the deal with Wednesday. Maybe I am getting old, but it seems like the weekend starts on Hump Day.
¡Today, Thursday, Metta World Peace and Mr. Pau Gasol were seen getting some sushi at Mikuni. Not quite sure if it was the one in Downtown or near the mall. Regardless, they were out enjoying the beautiful weather.
¡We come to find out Kobe won’t be playing. He officially loses the scoring title to OKC Thunder, Kevin Durant. He is focused on getting that sixth ring.
¡The Maloofs and KJ had a encouraging meeting today in regards of the arena. Mayor Kevin Johnson says that they “…agreed not to negotiate in public.” So we shall see how that goes.
¡No starters will be playing for the Lakers.
This is the last game of the season for the Sacramento Kings. The season was filled with up and downs, on and off the court. The last pick from the draft, UW’s (University of Washington) finest Isiah Thomas has become a fan favorite. Jimmer Fredette had a OK rookie season. Demarcus Cousins played well. Coaching changes, arena issues, just the norm for Kings Basketball.
I’m excited to see my Pacific Division Champions Lakers play tonight in person. I’m not excited that it won’t be the same Lakers that I’m used to seeing. The Lakers are waiting to see if they host the Denver Nuggets or Dallas Mavericks in the first round on Sunday.
