There's no 'I' in TEAM ... but there is a 'Me' in MEDIOCRE.
A quote to inspire the Mighty Lakers for tonight's game:
"There's no 'I' in 'TEAM' ... but there is a 'Me' in 'MEDIOCRE.'"
-Kronk, Kronk's New Groove
Kobe, if you have to, get 50 tonight and win Game One against Orlando. If you have to get 20 points and 20 assists, you know what to do: Win Game One.
- In the NBA, roughly 80% of the teams who win Game One with the series.
- The Mighty Lakers have won the past 16 playoff series when winning Game One.
- Phil Jackson's teams have never lost a playoff series when they've won Game One, going 46-0 in such circumstances.
Don't listen to the MJ & LJ comparisons. Don't worry about the box score. Worry only about the "W" column tonight.
