When Dwight Howard left for Houston, it was a shock to everyone that finally someone had willingly left the great franchise that is the Lakers. Now, we are seeing players like Jordan Farmar wanting to come back to the Lakers.
What gets lost in translation is not only how much it truly means to not only wear the great colors of the purple and gold, but also the respect that current and former teammates have for the great Kobe Bryant.
Trevor Ariza came to the Lakers through a trade from the Orlando Magic in 2007. He instantly became a fan favorite through his hard nose defense, three-point shooting, and his athleticism that included some highlight dunks that got the Staples Center rocking.
Ariza was one of the Lakers that truly knew what it meant to play for the Lakers and what it meant to be a part of the franchise, which was another reason why fans loved him. However, his recent actions will be giving Laker fans more of a reason to continue to root for Ariza.
According to Ariza’s Instagram, he was walking down the streets of Philadelphia wearing a Kobe Bryant jersey.
