And thus the final link to the championship Lakers teams of the early 2000's is gone. I miss those days.
Devean was criminally underused in the last season, especially during the playoffs, since he was (as aforementioned) the only Laker other than Kobe with championship experience. I would have much rather seen the ball in his hands than Smush Parker's or Kwame Brown's.
As if I didn't have enough reason to hate on FIBs...the #1-ranked Illini went and beat #19 UW at home, 75-65. (ESPN) It snaps the Badgers' 38-game win Kohl Center winning streak, and is head coach Bo Ryan's first Big Ten defeat on home court.
