KA: Fair enough. So tell me… what is so special about Los Angeles that they deserve not one but two NBA teams?
TP: LA deserves two teams of all great sports. The fact that we have zero football teams is just LA being funny.
KA: If that’s your logic, then the same should be said about Vancouver. What happened to the Raiders?
TP: The Raiders were here for 15-16 years, something like that. And Uncle Al… all he wanted was a kickass stadium – one with luxury boxes. LA promised they’d hook him up.
KA: Hold on… Uncle Al?
TP: Al Davis. The one and only owner of the Raiders.
KA: Okay. Keep going.
TP: N.W.A even has a line about him: “And quit giving juice to the Raiders / Cuz Al Davis / Never paid us“.
KA: Sounds hostile.
TP: The Raiders are silver and black because Al is color blind and he wanted the fans to see things like he does. He’s the original gangsta, which is why N.W.A loved him.
KA: Tony, you teach me something new every time I talk to you.
TP: Hahaha – menial trivia I’m sure.
KA: Someone somewhere will be interested in that fact. I, for one, am. That said, Lakers or Clippers?
TP: I am not a Kobe fan. But it’s hard not to be a Phil Jackson fan. I really wish the Clip Show was more competitive, because I would go to more of their games if they were.
KA: Nice lead-in. Kobe Bryant replaced Jerry West as the Lakers’ all-time leading scorer in tonight’s game. Does that do anything for you?
TP: Not really. Kobe began playing for the Lakers right outta high school. He’s almost always had great players around him. Jerry West spent four years in college.
KA: It’s okay. The Lakers lost to the Grizzlies tonight anyway. Point proven.
TP: See? Here’s another weird trivia bit that you may not be aware of but maybe you are.
KA: Do tell…
