 Check out Kobe last night tossing an alley-oop to the big man Dwight Howard against the Spurs.  Lob city has been in Los Angeles for the last couple years with Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, but now it's moving to a different part of the city with the Lakers.  Once Steve Nash makes his way back from injury we should see even more of this going down in the gold uniforms.
