In case some of you guys didn't notice yet, Fisher signed with OKC.
It'll be funny to watch if the final western conf is Lakers vs OKC. If Kobe gets the 6th ring, then no big deal. However, if Fisher gets the 6th ring...LOL...Kobe won't admit it, but I think he'll subliminally jealous and go nutty during summer...Jimmy Buss will have to make a big trade in the summer.
Neither, Shaq will come out of retirement and get 2 in a row .

“Look, we don’t get five championships by being sympathetic towards each other and kissing each other's a-- during the game,” Bryant said Wednesday when asked about the Lakers’ upcoming game against the Thunder next week. “I’m going to demolish him. He understands that. If he switches off on me in the post, there’s going to be problems. I’m sure he’ll put an elbow right in my back, and that’s why we love each other.”
That's entirely up to kobe if he trusts his teammates or not? Like kobe said he doesn't need to do the heavy lifting anymore coz this Laker team has talent now for a title run (imo) and with Rrrrrramon in session it's assembled to penetrate to feed our big's in the paint or if doubled team kick it back out to open perimeter shooters like a MWP, Barnes or a Murphy spotting up.
This laker team has been lacking a traditional PG that can create an inside out game combined with a burst of speed to do that and in ramon in session we now have the capabilities to break down the opposition D coz now the Lakers have options bb!
