Awww man... just when I thought getting a fourth title put him clear of all the critics and haters, Kobe puts a one of those damn Lakers flags on his ride. Dude, I'm a 10-year Lakers season ticket holder and I've NEVER put one of those silly things on my car! All they do is add fuel to the fire for every smart-ass Lakers hater. I'd just rather we stick to the normal NBA Championship things like greeting the team at the airport, a downtown parade and celebratory riots. And who doesn't love the occasional run in with the riot squad?
Anyway, I'll give Kobe a pass... after all he did just win the 2009 Finals MVP Award, but the flag better be in the attic next week!
Next thing you'll tell me that the Lakers charter flight has a flag on it!
