Everyone’s aiming for the top, a feat that not everyone will get
But me? I’m addicted to success, it’s the nicotine to my cigarette
And still I fail sometimes, which throws me off track
But my basketball-like ambition always keeps me bouncin right back
Haters love it when I fall, then get on they’re job when I rise
Giving me false encouragement and some how making me believe all their lies
They get me when I least expect it, so now I’m down, but not out
Cause I get right back up, wipe them tears, and ignore all the doubts
The trick is to stay focused, distractions they only distract
And when life gives you a little trouble, it’s all about how you react
The key is to seperate, and only mind what really matters
And never stop climbing, success is a never-ending ladder….
With their loss last night, the Los Angeles Lakers era came to an end. As Phil Jackson sat in his high chair on the bench for the last time, the Lakers reign as the consensus numberwon came to an end. After being swept by the Mavericks, the organization must look to improve the aging team. Mitch Kupchak, the general manager, will have to work the trading block in order to put the Lakers back into contention. With only a couple productive years left in Kobe‘s tired legs, the window is closing. Dwight Howard is the answer for the Lakers and Title Seventeen.
