Tiger Fight, September 30. In the game that ended last Sunday, the Lakers defeated the Nuggets 117-107 and advanced to the Finals with a total score of 4-1.
Today, in an interview, Lakers guard Kentavius Caldwell-Pope talked about the feeling of wearing Kobe's 5th generation to play during the playoffs. He said: "This really reminds me of Kobe. Because these are his shoes. Because of him, most of us like to wear these shoes. But at the same time I also like the feel of these shoes. They are very light. And I like their color scheme."
When talking about the Heat’s opponent in the Finals, Pope said: “The thing that impresses me the most in Miami is their transfer and their cooperation. This is not a single person trying to do everything. They are connected. They are connected. This is done on both offense and defense."
In the playoffs this season, Pope averaged 28.1 minutes, 9.9 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists.
