    I wonder if there isn’t some bizarre Artest type story behind that?
    Also, is he going to change his Twitter handle?

  • Str8 Ballin

        I agree. As good as CP3 is, he is not a good fit for the Lakers.

  • Popcorn

    Damn I really like # 9 . Good choice. If I had the chance to be a Laker and pick my number that will be it. Lol. As a fan I’ll never forget Nick Van Exel though.

    • gameplan

      And eight more than the number of sensible contributions you’ve ever actually made to a conversation (the one being the time you excused yourself to go to the bathroom).

  • laker warrior

    9 time better than he will be with any other wanna be team.
    Put that in your pipe .
    Barnes just made us a west coast bad boys team.
    Mamba Ron Ron Barnes this will scary
    Denver, Utah, OKC . The league just got tougher

  • laker warrior

    Fuck Van Exel he quit on the team .
    Remember in the hudle. 123 Cancun. Kobe hates him and Smush Parker.
    fur of the worse Lakers Smush, Devean George,Van Exel. Kwame.

    • 151rummer

      you could even throw Cedric Ceballos in there…….

  • laker warrior

    Oh I forgot Luke and Amo

    • Lakers3Peat!

      You hate Luke and Ammo why? Luke cause he got injured? How can you hate someone over a tragedy that may end their career that they have no control over? Same with Ammo…he’s recovering from a nearly career-ending injury and besides it’s not his fault he got traded to the Lakers.

  • Laker s Army

    Luke is a fag, Amo is a idiot and lacks cofindence.
    At the NCAA final when they lost he cried like a little bitch.
    It was horrible to watch. He is one of the biggest bust ever next to Luke.All they do is tie up cap money.
    All players get injured you play through it.
    Mental toughness is 70 per cent of the game.
    In the 4 th quarter when Kobe grits his teeth thats mental toughness nobody is going to fuck with him.
    Have you ever seen that from Luke who had a 30 foot lead on a fast break and got denied. White man cant jump.shot and is a fag. Brian Cook was his boyfriend.
    Amo is a frickin idiot ex pot smoker from oregon nobody on the team could jell with him. After the one finals he ran around trying to hug a team mate and no one was even willing to respond what does that tell you.
    Lakers 3 peat you know how some times you walk ina room and everyones like ow shit that ass hole is here again. I am sure you are use to it. Because guys like you who stick up for lazy heartless white piece of shit players.

  • Laker s Army

    Also number for is up for grabs they never use that jersey. Because Luke never can play

  • Laker s Army

    I mean number 4 is up for grabs

  • http://any kenny

    All Kobe’s rivals join in and help gang up on the rest.

  • LAKERS 3 PEAT

    All I know is our Bench just got hell of stronger in 1 month ! Steve Blake , Matt Barnes , Theo Ratliff, Lamar Odom & hopefully Shannon ! That’s a dangerous bench so far.
