Who Are These Lakers?

I’m watching a Laker game tonight (vs the San Antonio Spurs) for the first time since Los Angeles won the NBA championship about six years ago.

I only recognize one Laker – Kobe Bryant.

Who are all these guys? In particular, who are all these white Lakers?

There’s one guy named Walton who looks like Bill Walton. Any relation?

Tonight’s Lakers blew about a dozen layups.

How did the Lakers get into the Western Conference finals?

I guess it was defense.

So how did Phil Jackson coach these no-names into winners?

Is this his greatest coaching job ever?

Why am I wasting time and space on this goyisha nonsense when I should be studying Talmud?

Because class was canceled.

It’s not my fault I’m watching TV. It’s the rabbi’s fault.
