Big props to the Lakers
Wed Jun 21 21:06:49 CDT 2000
i want to agree with everyone that kobe doesn't want to be number two....but
his playing doesn't seem to show that conflict....he had no problem giving
the ball up to shaq during key plays in the fourth quarter, which one them
the game......they just don't seem to play like there is a clash of egos....
