It would appear that some of the Las Angeles Lakers ditched their high school American history class well over four score and seven times, probably (fortuitously) off playing pickup b-ball games. After a team outing to Lincoln, Kobe Bryant stated, "I don't know if the guys knew who he was… It came as a big shock to them when he was killed." While Lakers’ publicist insists it was a joke (clever, albeit far less comical than their current season’s performance), one thing is for certain… Steve Nash fell asleep; providentially, one of the few Lakers’ players whose snoring didn’t cause Honest Abe’ to roll over in his grave.
