Now we are into the second-half of the season the men will really be seperated from the boys, or the contenders from the lottery picks that is. The reigning top dog, the Los Angeles Lakers and their doberman Kobe Bryant look to bounce back after a disappointing first half to the season. After hosting the All-Star game in L.A., after his Staples MVP performance Kobe Bryant has a warning for the league, "You can’t beat me in June"! The whole purple and gold half of Los Angeles (Blake's really bringing out the blue and red) is behind their Lakers including, Snoop Dogg who has recorded a new song 'Purp & Yellow'. Following his 'Lakers Theme' of years past, the Doggfather hopes to bring L.A. more luck with his new track which features The Game. The video of the song features Laker players, Shannon Brown and Ron Artest. Two guys no stranger to music videos after vying for the beautiful, talented Toni Braxton in her clip last year. The video also features Matt Barnes who has returned to practice this Monday for the Lakers. The X-factor defensive back-up who can play the 2 or the 3 will be an assett for the Lakers to have back as they try and overcome their liabilities. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
