On the 8th day of Christmas my true Love gave to me…

Kobe & Shaq updates… (Smile) the 12th day is when I expect the BIG gifts!!! 🙂

Christmas is Friday!! After celebrating the birth of Baby Jesus and spending quality time with your family & friends, I am quite certain that THIS holiday is all about Basketball!! There are 6 games on the schedule and one of the Marquee match ups will be the one we DIDN’T see in the finals last year. Cavs vs. Lakers. Or insert any storyline you like, Shaq returning to LA (that hasn’t been interesting since his 1st 2 years with the Heat), Kobe vs. LeBron or How AWKWARD that the Eastern Conference Champs aren’t playing the Lakers in a repeat of the finals. Gotta give the people what they want right?

In honor of that I present to you 2 clips. The First an interview with Kobe Bryant & Magic Johnson. Kobe discusses his Legacy, post moves and more. Random Fact: Kobe has played in more Christmas Day Games than any other current player. ANNDDDD Congrats to Kobe for being named NBA player of the week 34pts 5rbs 4asts 2stls and ONE broken Finger!!! Fa La La La Fa la la la…..

Next, a conversation that I’ve brought up from time to time in previous posts, Shaq’s legacy with the Lakers. Will his number be retired, do the bad feelings that led to that trade overshadow what he & Kobe together meant to the franchise. Cool clip with interesting facts about former Lakers.

Finally, if you’re stumped on what you should get me for Christmas, you can start with this:

Whaaat? I REP MY CITY (and Mamba)!!!! but to be safe e-mail me or tweet me to make sure it’s not already wrapped and tucked under my tree! 🙂
