    This Ding piece really lacks focus. It's all over the place in terms of flow and message. He needs a better editor.

    His new position doesn’t require skill, but just to do the owners’s bidding.

    I don't know ....you guys .... I liked it a lot just as it is and I liked the style with the smaller shorter paragraphs and got the flow with Bryant through Shaw and Walton and how it impacts what's going on today and to anecdotes of how Phil did things that carry over as well. And interspersed with great photos.

    What part(s) should have been deleted and why considering the title? Nice job mouthpiece!

    You know Lakers ball is the home of amateur sports columnists covering our very own Lakers. Were quite blessed..

    Damn straight. Along with armchair coaches, FO and the players themselves.

    A student once told me that. The hurt was deep.

    meh, personal responsibility is always involved

    If someone is owning their education, they don't make comments like that. That is someone shirking their responsibility and not owning their stuff. Unless you suck as a teacher and everyone in the class had the same problem. And we all know that isn't true.

    Not necessarily so. I take the mission of reaching students very seriously. I always think i could do more. And I could.

    You could hold their hands and bring them snacks while they do their homework too.

    But where do you draw the line? Did you need that? I can admire being hard on yourself, but there are limits to the degree we should be hard on ourselves. You can bring a fish to water, but you can't make them drink. Or something like that. Only you know if it was a legitimate complaint or not, but I have known people in my life that have no problem making manipulative statements like that to people to make them feel sorry for them or to get favors.

    We’re not very good at estimating how difficult our struggles have been relative to others’. There's a massive body of literature on this.

    But how bout that Kobe guy? I rewatched his last 3:00 and shed a tear.

    That last game was just incredible. To me it was his greatest, especially down that stretch. 20 years under his belt, with so many injuries that's he's endured including the achilles and rotator cuff, and to pull out a gem like that? 60 points, come from behind victory with him willing us to win for his career ending moment? Are you kidding me? Unreal. No one will ever top that as a farewell performance.

    Greatest ending ever. I almost cried.. But the happiness legit overpowered it. It was something that never happened to me before.

    Maybe next time i rewatch the game ill let it all go lol.

    Also, he admitted he wanted to quit before the game but he got the very last of his motivation to finish with a bang. Thats what i live for right there ;)

    Floyd Mayweather Jr. wants to go 1-on-1 with Kobe Bryant for $1 million
    Let’s set aside the publicity aspect for just a minute and look at the absurdity of this.

    A 5-foot-8, 40-year-old former boxer has challenged a 6-foot-6 scoring machine who has made a career out of embarrassing every athlete he’s ever faced. This might be the easiest million dollars Kobe has ever earned.
