Los Angeles will REALLY REALLY miss you. Some even paid $27,500 a ticket to see your last game. (WHAT?)
Thanks for many years of basketball joy … Mr. Z was a HUUUGE fan and so was I. But then, so was about every other Los Angeleno.
AND….”he is an independent who leans conservative. During a September 3, 2007 interview with the Ventura County Star, “While I do not identify with any one party, I was raised in a conservative household. But my politics are my own and not my parents. I believe in family values and small government. I really get into politics, but I like to keep my views to myself. That’s all I will say. Let’s talk basketball and steer clear of controversy. I don’t want to alienate any of my fans.”
AND The Lakers won his last game…well HE won his last game….scoring SIXTY POINTS!
We love you and congratulate you.
