Intresting note made here. Mitch Lawrence claims that Kobe has told Mitch that he is committed to the Lakers this season. Personally, I believe it. But its only this season. Media Day is tomorrow, let it begin…

OK, I’m just exaggerating, but I do belive that we’ll be able to get into the 2nd round at least! But hey, maybe it’s fait for these two teams who’ve both tasted rings! Maybe, but it’s very unlikely!!!!!!!!
