To Vlade, Bibby, C-Webb and Peja

       This one’s for you
       This one’s for fighting the good fight
       This one’s for all the underdogs
       With every single blow of the whistle
       The league had its way
       You didn’t just battle the Lakers
       You battled the whole damn system
       Going up against genetic freaks
       Overrated superstars
       Petulant, privileged celebrities
       Literal skyscrapers of cash
       You may not have advanced
       But you came out clean on the other side
       In my mind, you’re always the champions
       Much love and much respect

       A fan
