The Lakers’ game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday was postponed. The Purple and Gold are back in action on Friday when they host the Portland Trail Blazers. It will surely be an emotional night in the stadium that Bryant essentially owned when he was a superstar for the Lakers during his playing days.
LA has the best record in the Western Conference. Nothing would make this season more special than to see James and Anthony Davis lead the franchise to banner No. 17 for Kobe.
LeBron is averaging 25.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 10.7 assists on the season. The King is playing like an MVP now that he’s healthy again.
Davis, meanwhile, is putting up 26.5 points, 9.1 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. Both LeBron and Davis were very close with Bryant, so it’s not a stretch to say they are going to dedicate the rest of the season to Kobe.
The Lakers retired Bryant’s No. 8 and 24 jerseys last year. He will be a first-ballot Hall of Famer as part of an incredible class when inductees are announced later this year.
