I'm going to be there at like a good Friday agreement to drop on the scene of his age group that has been waiting for a real lineup and rotation of his teammates and that the checks be there at like a real lineup and Mosgov leave when kids are assets and it's up to the GM of whatever team to be a good girl and ride this year at the very least you have been better with a guy that is close to drop off

I was there too.

 

That stage was surreal, with kobe and shaq sitting together.

And Phil and Jeannie sitting with Kareem between them.

Such drama.

I applaud Jeannie for holding things together in what must have been a really painful day coming after this whole jim buss thing (who wasn't there)

 

Special shout out to shaq's first daughter who spoke and was really magnificent in what she said.

Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

Just in case you missed it; there's some traffic but wasn't crazy, parking was low of ten to forty bucks streets had tow-away signs but my fav spot was ok, I brought a chair not liking to stand waiting was a good move, statue is great, Shaqs suit not so much, but hey he's Shaq funny "Can You Dig It?"

Haha

 

Shaq's suit was an odd choice.

 

An outdoor picnic table cloth that thing looked like

On a side note, the 2 Backstage Lakers that covered the Shaq Statue were really good.

Interesting and also good to see the laker player reunion.

 

Man kobe looks good. Happy and dapper.

 

Still think Shaq wore a picnic table cloth
