The night before the season opener, all Laker fans are anticipating another season from the Lakers and #24. The fans were anticipating this day since the Finals ended in June.
The 2010-2011 season marks the first season of the decade and looking back now, time really flew by since Kobe was drafted in 1996. This will be his 15th season playing for the Lakers. What many Laker fans don’t know is that Kobe will set a franchise record for longest career with the Lakers in tomorrow’s game, breaking the previous record of 14 seasons played for Lakers.
This breaks the tie with Laker legends Jerry West, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Elgin Baylor, whom all had outstanding careers that no Laker fan will ever forget (if they lived around those times).
Congratulations to Kobe, let’s hope he can reach 20 seasons!
