They announced via Facebook back in December that they would begin work on this ambitious new project. No official list of players to be made or any release dates have been released yet, but one teaser photo of Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant has been leaked onto the internet.Andrea and I are huge Lakers fans, and also live in Los Angeles, so this news is simply amazing to us.
