“The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow." — Thomas Paine
That quote from Thomas Paine seemed to have become the attitude of the Lakers (28-30) since a 119-108 loss in Denver on Monday. They're no longer sulking in the we-should-haves but embracing the challenges that await them in their hunt for a place in the playoffs.
During their interviews in team practice yesterday, Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and Dwight Howard shared their new philosophy for the rest of the season starting tonight versus the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves (20-34).no comments
