40 Down, 42 To Go

Last night at Staples was like the NBA Finals. At least it was for Laker fans. That loss to the Cavs is as good as it’s going to get this year.

At the end of the season, instead of bothering with a 2014-15 highlight video… Just replay January 15th’s loss to Cleveland. Because it was maybe the only Laker game that’s been fun to watch all season.

Remember earlier this season when a reporter asked Kobe if he was bothered by the team’s 0-4 start, and he responded by saying he was “festively jovial”? Well, last night, – he actually was. I don’t think I’ve ever seen The Black Mamba be so loosey-goosey on the court. Not even in an All-Star game. That was more like a wacky pro-am. Or a Rock N Jock. Bryant should have had a microphone to work the crowd, Globetrotter style. Chatting up Bron from the bench, laughing, hugging, joking, and DISHING.

You know Kobe Bryant is in a good mood when he jumps out with 8 dimes in the first quarter and sets a career high at 36 years old.

At this point Kobe could either decide to hate the world and freeze out his terrible teammates… Or say screw it, have some laughs and chuck some passes. He actually let himself have fun. And everybody won.

Team Car Flag got to see their hero put on a show, and Team Tank notched their belt with another loss. Best night of the worst season ever. 40 down. 42 to go.
