This is a bold declaration. Of course Barkley said he would rethink it, but I wondered how serious it would be if he followed up with it. The Lakers play Sunday against the Hornets. I think they lose that game. I don’t think 0-82 is going to happen, but Barkley runs the risk of possibly not eating for a full week.
That could kill him. I would go insane if I couldn’t eat for that long.
Good luck, Chuck. If you do go with this, you are a foolish man. But a wise man at the same time.
This isn’t the first time social media has been used in team outfits. The Lakers are taking that with their social media night and it’s pretty neat. I am all for handles being used in warmup clothing and so forth, just not for actual in-game stuff.
The Lakers say that Kobe Bryant tore his Achilles. Bryant himself believes that too. It’s the kind of injury that can sideline a player for over a year. Nobody comes back from the injury the same as they once was before.
I am not a Lakers fans and I can’t stand anything associated with the team. But I know basketball and I respect talented players when I see them. That’s Bryant. Despite his selfish ways and his arrogance, it’s part of what makes him a basketball player you just have to watch. He has been so great for so long that you would think that he could play on forever.
But with this injury, it appears that his days as a Laker could be over. His days in the NBA could be on the same boat.
So there’s this conspiracy theory about the Lakers going on right now and that unfortunately took away some positives that they celebrated Tuesday.
The team retired Shaquille O’Neal’s number. It was a great gesture. Unfortunately, it reminded me of an issue I’ve had with the Lakers and apparently they did not fix it.
Look at the jersey they used for O’Neal. The name and number are placed in front of the jersey? And look at the other retired numbers. All the fonts are wrong. For such a historical franchise, they really have no one to point out the inaccuracies of these jerseys? Terrible.
