The Lakers got blown out in Portland on Saturday night, causing Kobe Bryant to unload on youngsters D’Angelo Russell and Julius Randle. The loss dropped the Lakers to 9-37 — the worst record in the Conference. But there was something to get excited about, especially for all those people (we’re one of them), who grew up watching The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and prided themselves on memorizing the lyrics to the intro.
In that opening song, we get introduced to Will’s character “From West Philadelphia, born and raised, on the playground is where I spent most of days. Chilling out max and relaxing all cool and shooting some b-ball outside of the school.” This is when Will throws up a ridiculous hook shot that clanks off the iron and hits some tough neighborhood guys in the head.
Yeah, that’s pretty much the hook shot Kobe Bryant threw up against the Blazers midway through the third on Saturday, too.
Bean was actually a respectable 5-of-9 from the field on the night, but one of those four misses almost meant Bryant would be “movin’ with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air.” Kobe probably already has a home there, anyway.
