Anyone know why Lakers website is having a 50% sale off all their jerseys? Are we getting new jerseys this year or something?

Probably trying to get some revenue generated since there won't be ticket sales happening.

Shaq once told Kobe he'd 'kill him'

On how the feud began:

"Kobe runs right out to Jim Gray and does this interview where he lets me have it. He said I was fat and out of shape. He said I was milking my toe injury for more time off, and the injury wasn't even that serious. (Yeah, right. It only ended my damn career.) He said I was "lobbying for a contract extension when we have two Hall of Famers playing pretty much for free." I'm sitting there watching this interview and I'm gonna explode. Hours earlier we had just promised our coach we'd stop. It was a truce broken. I let the guys know, "I'm going to kill him."

On Kobe confronting him about Colorado:

Kobe stands up and goes face-to-face with me and says, "You always said you're my big brother, you'd do anything for me, and then this Colorado thing happens and you never even called me." I did call him. … So here we are now, and we find out he really was hurt that we didn't stand behind him. That was something new. I didn't think he gave a rat's ass about us either way. "Well, I thought you'd publicly support me, at least," Kobe said. "You're supposed to be my friend."

On Shaq's threat to ‘Kill Kobe':

Brian Shaw chimed in with "Kobe, why would you think that? Shaq had all these parties and you never showed up for any of them. We invited you to dinner on the road and you didn't come. Shaq invited you to his wedding and you weren't there. Then you got married and didn't invite any of us. And now you are in the middle of this problem, this sensitive situation, and now you want all of us to step up for you. We don't even know you." Everyone was starting to calm down when I told Kobe, "If you ever say anything like what you said to Jim Gray ever again, I will kill you."

"He was so young and so immature in some ways, but I can tell you this: everything Kobe is doing now, he told me all the way back then he was going to do it," writes O'Neal. "We were sitting on the bus once and he told me, "I'm going to be the number one scorer for the Lakers, I'm going to win five or six championships, and I'm going to be the best player in the game." I was like, "Okay, whatever." Then he looked me right in the eye and said, "I'm going to be the Will Smith of the NBA."

For some reason, "Will Smith of the NBA" totally cracks me up

True, but they are different types of douches. (Alleged) raping douche > whiny pound his chest about every frikken rebound douche.

I think it's more about his personality than the rape case, personally. Maybe I'm wrong there. But by the same token, it grates at me when people who idolize Michael Jordan and/or Jerry Rice complain whine about what d-bag Kobe is.

as a niner and a bull fan let say this here now so you all don't have to rewind it back. you all wonder why i was a bigger fan of

Scottie Pippen and John Taylor. now do the math.

I agree with John Wall. If LeBron used his strength and posted up Kobe all game LeBron would win but LeBron has no post game. So LeBron would get shut down by Kobes D. I think Kobe would win like 11-5 or some score like that it would be close.

I also agree with Marsh
