My Los Angeles Lakers

I am one of those typical Los Angeles Lakers fans who like the Lakers when they are winning and do not pay much attention top them when they are losing.  I try and only root for teams that are winning.  I’m a fair weather friend.  You’re not feeling well?  Sorry to hear that.  Please pass the salt.

As far as the LA Lakers are concerned, at least they have somewhere to go and that is up.  Maybe.  Here is the “no brainer” comment.  “They have to re-build.”  What does that mean?  I don’t know what that means.  I don’t know much about basketball.  I can’t even build my own life properly much less tell someone how to rebuild their lousy basketball team.  But I know there are plenty of people out there quite willing to tell anyone how to do anything.

I know. How about picking in the draft or getting a couple top-level free agents to “elevate” the team.  I think they know that too.  All I know is how to “elevate” on the escalator to the third floor level of the Century Mall to find Fatburgers  for a Kobe Bryant XXL Cheeseburger with fries. I find I need to put on more weight with the remote possibility that I can float better in the “Y” pool.

But what I do know is this:  Please, Los Angeles Lakers, no more wins this season.  Don’t do anything that may jeopardize your critical draft position.  We want to win – so you need to lose.

The painting is 20″ x 24″ ink and acrylic on sporting news newspaper mounted on stretched canvas then finished with a protective coat

 Special Guests

Dwight Clark (#87, Former 49er) was the receiver in the famous “Catch” which  refers to the winning touchdown reception by Dwight Clark off a Joe Montana pass in the January 10, 1982, NFC Championship Game between the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers. The Catch is widely regarded as one of the most memorable events in NFL history. The game represented the end of the Cowboys’ domination in the NFC since the conference’s inception in 1970, and the beginning of the 49ers’ rise as an NFL dynasty in the 1980s. (source: Wikipedia)  Also on hand will be Kyle Nelson (#86, Current 49er, Tight End & Long Snapper)
