Dear Mr. Garnett,
The entire Lakers’ Nation has been experiencing a recurring dream in which you dawn the purple and gold and, with one hand on Kobe Bryant’s shoulder, you use your free hand to hoist the Larry O’Brien trophy at the end of next season for the entire universe to witness.
Your loyalty and work ethic are second to none, and it is well understood among us that these endearing qualities make you the most efficient player in the game. Now picture yourself playing with a friend, a confidant, and the second most efficient player in the league. Don’t you just see how attainable the title now becomes? Can’t you feel the trophy in your hand?
We do not wish any disrespect to the Minnesota Timberwolves organization or its fans. After all, the Minnesota fans and organization truly deserve to win a title, but now is time for a rebuilding effort and your destiny lay along a different path. Your fate is in Los Angeles now, a place you rightfully call home and love. A place that loves you right back.
Simply put, The Big Ticket belongs in the City of Angels. A city where dreams always become reality and are played out on the big screen for those with talent, heart, and of course a whole lot of effort. Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett together is an instant masterpiece, an unstoppable one-two punch, and the most feared winning machine in the league.
As I am sure you are well aware, there is a website dedicated to discussing our recurring dream until it becomes a reality. Getgarnett.com logs thousands of users per day and each individual expresses their version of the dream on a daily basis. We’ve watched your video highlights and felt your tears of pride and pain and understand why you will never accept loosing.
And we do all this for one simple reason: WE BELIEVE!
Thank you for taking the time to read about our dreams, and now that we have shared them with you, please make them a reality. You deserve it and you’ve already won our hearts and minds!
Your Loving Lakers Nation
