This is the third in a series of fanposts 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!
Part III opens as dawn breaks in Los Angeles the day after Christmas. Staples Center is now a smoldering hulk, housing the remnants of the Lakers' de facto dominance over its key rivals.
Shell-shocked combatants begin to stir, their stupor giving way to the sound of familiar footsteps echoing across the battle-scarred hardwood. The acrid air inspires a message from the man surveying the carnage -- but it is not the only message that will be delivered in the aftermath of yesterday's clash. . . .
Later in the day, fate brings together two self-proclaimed Lakers fans.
The role of Justin Bieber was played by Justin Bieber. No Justin Biebers were hurt or actually tortured in the making of this fanpost.
The photo of Kobe bleeding, however, reportedly depicts a real injury sustained in a game against the Golden State Warriors in 2008.
So what happens next?!
In addition to calling out Justin Bieber, what "truth" does Jack Nicholson impart to the lad?
Have fun answering that question in the comments below!
