The great Jamaal "Silk" Wilkes' No. 52 Laker jersey was retired on Friday night before their 104-87 win over the Portland Trail Blazers. After the game, Serena Winters of asked Kobe who he would have at his jersey retirement. Bryant answered that he "doesn't give it too much thought," but after a bit of brainstorming, he said, “I’d probably force Shaq to do it,” driving the crowd of reporters wild.
