The Shawfather Part I - Farewell to the Maker

I was inspired by the hoops-cum-Hollywood motif of this blog to create an ad hoc series of fanposts using captioned photos celebrating the SS&R persona of Lakers assistant coach Brian Shaw: one of the most significant contributors, both on and off the court, to the team's' success for more than a decade.

Welcome to the Shawfather saga!

As with the movie franchise that inspired it, this fanpost series begins with the lead character firmly established -- his power and influence wide-reaching, fingers controlling the strings of "the Association" (akin to "the Commission" in The Godfather universe).

In Part I, the Shawfather dispenses with the man who, through a misplaced demonstration of defiance, unwittingly caused the Shawfather's rise from a respected but low-level caporegime in the Lakers organization to the mastermind whose Rings all other power brokers in the Association -- including the billionaires -- kiss out of respect, envy and dread. . . .
