For those of you that bleed purple and gold, who are frequents at the Staples Center, or for those who love Kobe, Lamar, and Derek, the time has come! Lakers Pre-Season starts tonight with a two game series against in state competition the Golden State Warriors. Although the Warriors are already 1-0 this pre-season, the Lakers are undoubtedly favored with their all-star roster and home town advantage (I say home town instead of home court because the game is in Anaheim tonight).
Phil Jackson has stated that he expects Lamar to come off the bench while Kobe Bryant, Derek Fischer, Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum and Ron Artest to kick the game off. I think I speak for all Laker fans when I say how excited I am to see how Artest plays with our boys... and obviously to watch Kobe drop dimes on Golden State.
For those of you not attending the game, it will be broadcasted on AM Radio 710 for ESPN or you can watch it on KCAL HD.
