Basketball 101

MILWAUKEE — Playing at UCLA has its rewards well beyond the obvious ones. Just ask former Bruins standout Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, who, as the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports today, got his introduction to Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant in a few pickup games at UCLA. Mbah a Moute will guard Bryant tonight. “I was fortunate enough to be at UCLA when we had a lot of pros come in (during the summer),” Mbah a Moute said. “To play with those guys, Kobe, Paul Pierce, Baron Davis, you name it. It was intimidating, but it was more fun. Those guys were our role models because we saw them on TV.”
