If you are still trying to figure out how exactly did the Lakers “beat the shit” out of the Warriors on Sunday, it’s because of Kobe Bryant. No, not his 12 points but his motivational time-out speeches like the one above and the Kobe Bryant themed socks – with the #3 on the right sock and #4 on the other – all of the Lakers were wearing.
“The power of the socks,” said Bryant after the game. “It’s got to be the socks.”
Whatever it was, it worked for D’Angelo and Jordan Clarkson and caused Steph Curry and Klay Thomposon to have their worst shooting performance ever as teammates.
