Dodgers fans know that the city of Los Angeles treats their star athletes right. When you come to play for a team out here, you really are loved and appreciated. That is especially true when you bring championships to your city.
One guy that brought 5(!) championships to Los Angeles was Kobe Bryant. The late Lakers legend really was a true representation of Los Angeles, and I don’ think there will ever be an athlete as loved as he was and is here. But the Dodgers Mookie Betts could be on that same path of greatness.
Betts signed a 12-year extension with the Dodgers last season before ever playing a game for them. That confidence was immediately rewarded with a World Series win in 2020, thanks in part to efforts from Betts. Because of that, local artist Brian Peterson decided to honor both Mookie and Kobe with a mural.
This Kobe and Mookie mural in LA is awesome. ?

The mural to honor the Lakers and Dodgers is located at 686 N Spring St in Los Angele. That is the parking lot right next to Philippe The Original. Fans hoping to see it in person will likely have to wait in line to take a picture though, as most of Los Angeles has been waiting for Peterson to finish the mural. Long live Kobe, long live Mookie.

Once again, the Dodger farm system is one of the best in baseball. In the most recent rankings of farm talent, Keith Law placed Los Angeles at number 10 on the list. That slight dip in ranking can be attributed to a lot of things, but mostly prospect graduation.
