Kobe Bryant puts a bow on 2010

We could fill this space with trenchant observations and best-of lists about the year that was for the Lakers and their fans. Or, we could allow Kobe Bryant's description of the previous 365 days, delivered in the final moments of the year following Friday's 102-98 win over Philadelphia to do the work for us:

"2010 was a kick ass year."

Hard to argue. Happy new year to everyone from the Land O'Lakers blog, and here's to big things in 2011.
