As we embark on a new championship run here in Los Angeles, we pay homage to 20 years ago. The dawn of a new era in LA. The coming of age of a young Kobe. The dominance of Shaq. Big Shot Bob. Aging veterans. Role players. Phil and his innate ability to manage egos of future hall of famers.
The team that planted the seed in my mind to chase my dreams. The team that introduced me to my idol, Kobe.
Sac – Phoenix – Portland – Indiana = Champs.
