Mamba Madness

The LA Lakers’ previous, or shall I say huge losses during their weird pre-playoffs stretch didn’t diminish Kobe Bryant’s greatness a bit. I bet fellow fan Ignatius could attest to that. 😀 The Black Mamba’s triple-double (23-11-11) stats, no doubt, proved that he is better than Lebron at basically every aspect of the sport. Sorry about the sudden comparison hehe. Kobe haters and LBJ creeps, keep off my space. Kobe is better. End of discussion. 😀

Anywaaaays, back to the moment of truth. >> I’m at that moment where I feel anything (could be miracle or magic maybe) can happen in this game. And it damn happened. IT WAS CRAZY. 😀

Kobe scored the triple-dubs OMG on the same day Shaq retired his #34 jersey and with the great Phil Jackson around. (Yeah, I miss the old 1-2-Kobe-Shaq-punch days) Even with injured Nash and World Peace just watching on the bench, Lakers had everything altogether. Kobe’s high spirits and the big men’s (Howard, Gasol) defense served as the team’s glue that kept them together and got the ball rolling. That is how you do it. That is how you make the Laker nation celebrate a sinister game. 🙂


So to celebrate more of the Mamba Madness, I am sharing with you a collection of quotes about Kobe also shared with us by Ignatius Oyama. But before anything else, let’s give Team LA a big wave of props for today’s great game. 😀 Gooood, okay enjoy the rub.
