Two kinds of very happy people right now:
1) Laker fans
2) Execs from NBA, ABC, TNT, TBS, etc. Can you imagine the ratings for Laker games next year?! Plus the finals-doesn't matter who the Lakers play-the numbers will be way up over this year.
I hope we get Malone nailed dowm fast-he says he's all about the ring and doesn't want the big bucks-but I think people will be throwing money at him, taking all sorts of hits on the cap, just to keep him out of LA.
Laker fan since JW hit his famous 55 ft jumper against the Knicks, 1970. First game I ever watched. Loved the Lakers with the cool uniforms.
