Phil will use some footage from good ol’ Lakers fan Denzel to prep the fellas for game four!

dwashTMZ: Fear not Lakers faithful — Kobe Bryant and his boys have the perfect motivational tool before game four of the NBA finals: movie night (a shiver runs down the Magic’s collective spines).

We’re told the Lakers had three options for tonight’s team bonding outing — “The Hangover,” “Angels & Demons” and “The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3.”

We would have recommended “The Hangover” (HYSTERICAL!!!), but coach Phil Jackson chose “Pelham” because the team wanted “to support [their] season ticket holder,” Denzel Washington.

A discount on his pricey floor seats might be more appreciated by D Dub.

    The Hangover is the funniest movie I’ve seen since Dumb & Dumber. I wanna see Pelham 1 2 3, though. It seems like a dope movie.

    It’s cool that the Lakers are actually good friends with each other and do stuff like this. This is why we have the best chemistry in the league.

    I thought that ‘The Hangover’ was great and funny as hell until they started with the reveal of what they had done the night before. Everything leading up to that point was on par and had me engaged, but when they started to piece everything together… the “mysterious night before” didn’t deliver the punch that it needed!

    The build up about what the hell had happen to them the night before and how they ended up the way they did was great. Their journey in piecing it all together was hilarious, but once the reveal started happening… it was slightly disappointing.

    For example, they never explained the whole stolen cop car incident. Somehow these guys just magically “stole” a police cruiser? And at Tyson’s house… they just happen to waltz right in and walked the tiger right out? Why was the tiger so cooperative the night before, but so antagonistic with them in the bathroom of the suite?

    The movie could have done SO MUCH MORE with that! They SHOULD HAVE, in fact, gone into detail of how they stole the cruiser and this whole elaborate thing of how they were able to break into Tyson’s compound and also how they were able to convince or lure the tiger to go along with them. It just seemed like that they got lazy and wanted the audience to fill in too many pieces! I think that they missed a great opportunity in making this movie GREAT! I did enjoy the introduction of a couple of new characters into the comedy genre though: the brain dead brother-in-law, Alan and Stu, the dentist!

    Anyway, crap… this is supposed to be a blog about the Lakers right? Hahaha! Anyway, Denzel knows what’s up! Any Lakers fan is alright in my book!

    GO LAKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
