The Los Angeles Lakers decided to take in a movie on Thursday night. Some of the players came away enthused about the experience:
We've watched "Lincoln"! Very good movie! It describes one of the most important moments in the history of the USA. Highly recommended!— Pau Gasol (@paugasol) December 7, 2012
Others ... less so.
Dwight on "Lincoln": "It was long ... Steve (Nash) fell asleep at one point. He was snoring"— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) December 7, 2012
Eight times! What did he think this was, the film version of A Prairie Home Companion?
And it seems there were some who perhaps should have paid more attention in history class.
Kobe on the team's viewing of "Lincoln": "I don't know if the guys knew who he was ... It came as a big shock to them when he was killed"— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) December 7, 2012
Sadly, this was just Kobe Bryant making a Master Splinter-level funny.
For those not adept in the art of sarcasm, Kobe was joking about his teammates not knowing who Lincoln is— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) December 7, 2012
Next up: the historical drama The Hobbit.
