I live in LA and have followed the Lakers for virtually my entire life. One of my favorite periods of Laker fandom occurred during the 2000 season when Glen Rice faced Jalen Rose in the NBA Finals. A lot of people around town were down on Rice because of Phil Jackson's very-public comments that he wanted a 'different type of player' for the triangle. I remember blocking most of that out because of my bias towards Rice. Anyway, there's a great Lakers blog (www.forumblueandgold.com) that I read every day and, on Thursday, there was a FANTASTIC piece on the career of Glen Rice. I thought I'd pass it along as it is a very interesting/enjoyable read (even for the Pistons fans out there).
