Mamba in the Morning: Kobe Bryant's birthday, weekend recap

It’s the end of August and basketball fans are grasping for anything to satisfy their basketball fix. Luckily we have the FIBA World Cup this year to help us during the long off-season. However, with that still many days away, let’s look at some of the best Lakers news around the web.

Here at Lake Show Life, you can see the trailer for Kobe Bryant’s new documentary, which is sure to be a hit among Lakers fans. We also looked at the possibility of a breakout year for Xavier Henry and the possible last breaths of Wes Johnson’s career. In honor of Bryant’s birthday Saturday, Bleacher Report put together a fantastic project of artwork of Kobe Bryant.

What is Kobe Bryant’s greatest moment? It’s an impossible question to come to majority decision on. Lakers Nation took a look at the question, asking their followers via Twitter for their response, and they were predictably varied.

The Lakers are in a unique situation going into this season. With the front office choosing not to build with some of the young talent on the roster and instead voted to retry next summer to bring in a superstar, the Lakers are in limbo. Silver Screen and Roll took a look at the roster and the reality show it could become.

Lastly, he wasn’t the consensus pick, but of the candidates available, Byron Scott seemed like the right pick. Lakerholicz took a chance to look at what Scott will bring to the table as Lakers head coach.
