Joe Crawford, drafted by the Lakers out of Kentucky, acknowledged he was rooting for former college teammate Rajon Rondo and the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals, but Crawford also said he has been a Bryant fan most of his life.

I guess he doesn't want to make the team.:D But I like how he turns around and mentions he's a Kobe fan. Dude knows how to play politics.:smoking:

he probably knew he wouldn't make the team so he made this statement to make sure. :)

c'mon dude chill...he rooted for his buddy from college because he didn't know anyone on the lakers personally thats reasonable. Paul Pierce himself used to root for the Lakers and he made the Cs team....look where he is n ow:cry:

Well if he was rooting for the Celtics we should burn him at the stake.

If he could somehow see the future and knew the lakers would draft him so he rooted for the Lakers then we should still burn him at the stake because he's a witch:rolleyes:

Stupid thing to say. Not a good way to make the team.

It's all good. That happens with a lot of players...they'll be cheering for a team their whole life, and then end up signing with a different team, sometimes there favorite teams rival.

Remember Paul Pierce used to be a Laker fan when he was young and he hated the Celtics like we do now.
