Last night's game was awesome. I saw the potential of our lineup finally begin to be reached with efficient play. Bynum and Gasol played well together and showed that they can dominate any two big men out there. I saw them rotating on defense with ease and switching roles. Even when one of them got caught up outside on a pick and roll, the other was still at the basket waiting to contest shots (pau had some good blocks). Theyre rebounding ability along with lamar can be exponential. If the Lakers Twin Towers play with that defensive intensity and offensive efficiency...unstoppable.

Not to mention Kobe bryant...

And if sasha can play like he did last night (like he is supposed to), i have absolutely no worry about any team we face

Twin Towers actually = Olajuwon and Sampson, but yeah, a new name would be cool.

well yea, but a lot of people on this board probably have no clue who ralph sampson is...that and i think duncan and robinson had more marketing behing them with that title i think, mostly because of the age they were in, and were arguably a better duo than those two...some would say more deserving of the title. if you wanna get really technical, Jack Sikma and Marvin "the eraser" Webster used that name in the 70s for the supersonicesl...at least i think they did, correct me if i'm wrong
