The Kobe injury is terrible and depressing, but at the same time in a Lakers fan first and the team marches on. It will be interesting to see who steps up with Kobe out, who we can possibly rely on going forward, post-Kobe retirement even. I'm not calling the season a wrap with Kobe out, I'll watch until there are no more games. I think we're a first round exit if we make the playoffs with or without Kobe, but I'll watch til the end.
Really guys all the pressure and nervousness should be off our fanbase as Lakers fans. We can actually relax a little and sit back and see how our guys respond. Like Weezy said it will be fun to see how we can gear up. Based on Dwight practice interview video I watched and posted today in the Dwight thread he really looked excited for this challenge and opportunity.
