Deserves its own thread I think. Fitting that Kobe, Duncan & KG go into the hall at the same time, having defined their generation of NBA.

Hard to believe people are trying to scalp tickets to the memorial! :evil: I know you're not able to transfer the tickets, so I'm not sure how they are going to pull it off. But I've seen single and a pair of tickets going for $1,500 up to $2,500!!! :nonono:

I know there are a lot of people who were trying to get tickets but couldn't because of the demand. Then you have these butt-wipes with some kind of connections that are able to get tickets only to make $$

Just sad

Went on a tour of the LA Times Printing facility today... They had all these printing plates from Kobe's career hanging on the wall. :nonono: :cry:

I took pictures but I can't figure out how to get them from my Phone to the forum, now that Photobucket requires a sub.

Sure you're probably aware, but the LA Times is owned by Dr. Patrick Soon-Schiong, one of the Lakers largest minority stakeholders.

Man...Vanessa did her best. Only after a month and she held her composure like that. She definitely used that Mamba mentality today.
