Laker nation was pumped up Tuesday night.
The franchise with the fourth-worst record in the NBA had a 17 percent chance of losing their first round pick (if it fell to six it went to the Sixers). Instead, the ping-pong balls favored them, and they jumped up to the No. 2 pick. Where they might get Karl Anthony Towns (the guy they want).
So Kobe was jovial.
And Kobe doesn’t care what you think of him or his sense of humor. So there you go.
