Kobe Bryant’s Los Angeles Lakers: Perhaps the Best Team in the Past Decade

So I was kickin last night on the sofa in my Gilbert Arenas Jersey, T-Wolves Hat, and a pair of T-Mac Sneakers while sippin on some chocolate milk.

Kobe has it all. He is versatile, highly motivated, and aggressive (all unlike LeBron). Kobe just went for his fifth rin...
