Kobe’s Final Game Overshadowed by Warriors’ Prowess
The Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant bids farewell to the NBA this Wednesday when the team plays the Jazz. Although this is likely to be a historically watched sporting event, it seems as though the Golden State Warriors’ is a more interesting story to tell.
The Warriors are embarking on a single-season record of winning 73 or more wins, breaking the 1995-96 Bulls record. Due to the prominence of this potential feat, the NBA made the decision to bump Kobe’s final game to from ESPN to ESPN2.
“Unfortunately, this is the way it’s going to be,” Lakers head coach Byron Scott said about the downgrade. When your team happens to have their franchise worst record in history, you can only expect so much from the league and granted viewership.
