There is a mystique about player with the Lakers.
It is like playing with the Yankees or the Cowboys, just being on the team makes you a star. If you are a legitimate star player it makes you into a superstar.
Think about a few of the players who have left the Lakers like Trevor Ariza, Jordan Farmer or Shannon Brown. When was the last time they were on the radar?
You think Shannon Brown marries Monica if he played for the Bobcats.
That is why Pau Gasol is singing gleefully “How to Save a Life” by The Fray.
