1. The Lakers had the night off on the road, so the team decided to catch a movie. Pau Gasol was almost giddy.
2. They chose “Lincoln”! A classic, wholesome American tale.
3. Some of the Lakers had trouble paying attention.
4. Other Lakers, as Kobe Bryant pointed out today, were in over their heads.
5. Kobe was apparently telling a joke.
McMenamin seems pretty sure Kobe was sincerely joking, but it’s sometimes hard to tell if a maniacal sociopath is joking or if he’s just throwing his team under the bus again. After all, Kobe Bryant is a dick.
6. At least Pau Gasol enjoyed himself.
H/T Dave McMenamin.
