While I hesitate to use wikipedia as a source, that article is impeccably sourced. Clearly it's not just a made up thing.


Impeccably sourced? 90% of it comes from the same book by the same author.

Exactly. It's not a numbers game. It's a popularity thing. Titles have nothing to do with it, numbers have nothing to do with it. Who gets a statue is based on popularity with the fans and with the ownership of the Lakers. Shaq burned a lot of ground when he left L.A. he threw a lot of very important people under the bus including Buss and Mitch.

Shaq should turn down a statue if he doesn't want to be seen as a fake Muslim like Kareem.

These statues are against the rules of Islam. Mohammad, the prophet of Islam, called those who pick and choose which parts of the Quran to follow hypocrites.

I have no doubt his ego is bigger than his religious belief, so he will get his statue.

I wouldn't usually, but that article was sourced 145 times and from respectable places.

And you say that 'ripthekik is your hero', which doesn't exactly make you the most reliable at using facts.

35/145 come from the same source. The other 110 are split between 75 different sources. So much for 90%.

Is this supposed to be funny? Kobe has become a global icon, He's far and away more beloved in the city of L.A. than Shaq.

Kobe will go down with Magic as the two most beloved sports figures in Los Angeles, period. And not just basketball. Magic Johnson is still a GOD in L.A., and Kobe has already reached that status.

Yes, it was supposed to be funny, but in all honesty I do agree with your post completely.

I'm pretty sure Dr. Buss promised Shaq a statue before he passed away. He's getting one.

He should get one with Kobe though, because both of them won 3 championships as the duo.

That'd be cool but do you really think Kobe would want his statue with Shaq?

A statue of the alley oop play vs the Blazers would be awesome. Too bad it won't happen. I doubt he gets a statue, though :/

No. I do not even believe kobe should be given a statue. 100's of years from now lets say the lakers win 20 more championships. Are we going to have to give maybe another 5-6 statues to those players. 1000 years from now, another 50-60? Where do the statues end.
