    I can't stand Kobe or BSPN's fixation with LA in general or Arash Markazi, but this is a pretty interesting read because of all the perspectives involved, so it dilutes some of the media bias surrounding the Lakers. Particularly, it comes out strongly how committed Kobe was as a two way player despite all the other nonsense that was surrounding him at the time. The feat itself is sort of a historical curio, as the Lakers finished with just 45 wins, but it's an entertaining read.

    If you want an oral history of Duncan (which, for all intents and purposes, is as good as an oral history of the modern Spurs), you unfortunately have to go to local media outlets and blogs

    Agreed though, the Spurs consistently fly under the radar despite having equaled or exceeded anything the Lakers have done over the past two decades.

    The most un-Spursian thing to happen in the past 30 years with that franchise is Admiral's shameless ball-hogging to win the scoring title, and then losing to the Jazz in the first round.

    Haters gonna hate.

    Kobe was amazing that year. Individual greatness is also a treat to watch for fans.
