Growing up in the Bay Area, I was surrounded by Warriors fans, but my basketball allegiance has always lied with the Lakers. As a kid, I loved watching Shaq and Kobe dominate the league, and I was absolutely devastated when Shaq was traded away to Miami. It was then that my all-time favorite NBA player became Kobe Bryant. Now, as Dub Nation reigns supreme, I write about what I believe the Lakers can do to in order to get No. 17!
