Posted on 20 Dec, 2014, by in Basketball

Not for the first time this season, the Los Angeles Lakers looked a lot better when Kobe Bryant wasn’t playing, including a very good but short game for Jeremy Lin in a 104-103 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, with the name of the selfish scorer written all over another disappointing ending.

NBA Rumors – Dallas Mavericks Trading For Rajon Rondo Doesn’t Make Them the Best
