Home court is on everyones’ mind!

Daily Breeze: The Dallas Mavericks and Denver Nuggets have loomed large in the Lakers’ rearview mirror recently. The Mavericks and Nuggets each trailed the Lakers by four games in the Western Conference going into Tuesday’s play.

It remains to be seen whether the Lakers finish atop the West for the third consecutive season. No question, it should be their top priority judging by what Lakers coach Phil Jackson had to say.

    Not Going to Happen Cleveland has Home Court threw out the Playoffs the lakers Will Have Home Court in the West but because East Stinks and West is always hard and Lakers Have the rest of the games on the Road and Not to mention they still have to play the spurs and nuggets I doubt it

    yea that is not gonna happen. the lakers are 3 games behind the cavs in the loss column and are 4 games behind since the cavs own the tiebraker. all we can do is get HC throughout the west finals and hope we dont get the cavs in the finals so that we will get HC,

      not saying we need HC in the finals…just saying that we will not get it.

    Is the whole team wearing Kobe’s sneakers? It even looks like Pau had them all in that picture. Dope.
