I am not one for conspiracy theories, but this reeks of a publicity stunt intended to get people talking about the Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant right before Jerry West rejoins the organization (probably not as general manager, but in another capacity), which will then get the talking heads at ESPN to start debating whether or not West is simply the missing link to the Laker puzzle and how he will help elevate L.A. back to the top in the Western Conference title picture. I am sure increased ticket prices and ticket sales, along with more television coverage will follow.

Make sense?
