Lakers drive to 5 has begun

Lakers Bling - 2009 NBA championship ring I’ll be honest; this is nothing more than an excuse to flash some serious bling. Glad to get that out of the way. Hey, a guy’s gotta rep his team, right? Besides, look at it. 14 diamonds for the 14 previous championships, 15-karat gold(???) to symbolize the 15th. All the players’ faces are engraved on their individual rings. And it looked even better in HD.

Lakers Bling - 2009 NBA championship ringDuring tonight’s season opening win over the Clippers, MVP chants could be heard after Kobe’s first basket. Kobe will keep things moving this season, I have no doubt about that. I think the main goal though is to keep Andrew Bynum healthy so he can get into a groove and actually, you know, score some points. It’ll also be interesting to see how this whole Ron Artest experiment works out. Go Lakers!
