The Lakers vs. Spurs series of the 2008-2009 season moves into round two this Sunday. The 34-8 Lakers have a 22-3 home record; it is imperative that the team raises that number to 23, and the Lakers owe the 29-13 Spurs a loss.
The 33-8 Lakers are back at home to host the 9-32 Washington Wizards. The Lakers are coming off of a 108-97 win over the Clippers; the Wizards are coming off of a rare 110-107 road win against the Kings.
With the Lakers off to a poor start, trade rumors have begun to swirl around Kobe Bryant, leading many to speculate if he'll leave for greener pastures. Kobe puts those rumors to rest in his interview with Yahoo Sports.
