Lakers win Seven and I welcome you Noah Evan
DING DING DING DING...Introducing first, crying out of the blue corner, cradled at 19 inches tall, weighing in at 6 pounds, 0 ounces. He holds a professional diaper changing record of 6-3, 6 pooped/3 soiled, all 9 diapers with KO losses. He is the current, reigning and defending cutest newborn champion of the world, smiling in all the way from Orange County, CA: Noah "Evan" GARCIA!
I have to say this week was not too shabby. My champion was finally born. He came into our lives on 1/12/11 (almost pulled the 1/11/11 birthday). And on top of that the champs win 7 straight. What a week indeed. Even though I couldn't find the time to watch any of this weeks games I was able to watch Sports Center highlights from our hospital room TV. Any chance I had I spent it with him but the very second he fell asleep I peeked at stats. From my quick late night/early morning observations LO and Brown have been playing great.
Lets give credit where credit is rarely given, the bench. Since the devastating loss to the Grizzlies at home, LO has since gone bananas. He's scored 105 points and pulled in 75 rebounds. Give this man more playing time coach! The man is a monster. 6th Man of the year perhaps? Here's another candidate for that award, Shannon Brown. Brown is also looking impressive in this current 7 game winning streak. He's averaging 11 PPG and shooting 47% FG. If we play well off the oak we rarely ever choke.
Don't get me wrong, the usual contributors are playing well too. In the last 7 W's Kobe has averaged 25 PPG and shooting 48% FG. Gasol is averaging 18 PPG and averaging 11 boards.
Let's aim for 14 straight beating Boston at the end of this month!
