I flew out to the City of Angels this year for seven days to watch the world champions play three home games in the luxurious Staples Center. It was thrilling and exciting for me being at the games because I experienced the true nature of the gist and glamour of Lakers basketball.
Last year when the Lakers won the NBA championship, I indicated in a letter to The Chronicle that God was a fan of the Lakers. Now, God didn't reveal this to me personally, but this is something that I truly believe. God's divine presence allowed the Lakers to win this year's world basketball championship.
