TLN’s Game Preview: Lakers vs. Hornets

    It all comes down to this. One game for pride, one game to show the world that the Lakers are very much alive and very much in the mood for butt-kicking. I don’t see the Hornets losing another game in the regular season after this (Kings, Clippers, and Dallas… Okay, maybe Dallas) but if they do, the Lakers have to win this game to even out the season series.

    Dear Lakers,

    I don’t have any cute anecdotes to pump you up or tales of manliness to spur you on, but I believe in you. We, the Lakers Nation, stand behind you now and declare that this is our year, this is our time, and this is our game!

      1 2 3 Lakers this season comes down to this game! Its win or go home as the 2nd seed the anticipation of the MVP is like Yankees at Boston but when all the smokes is cleared the Lake show will win and Kobe will raise his hands with the MVP trophy

      jordan, fluke and sasha taking tooooo many 3 pointers and not making them. and f uckin phil was just sitting there and watching. if lakers lost this one i was gonna murder phil.

      KOBE BRYANT 2008 Most Valuable Player.

    • Lakers 24 7

      most of the statistical predictions were accurate, not bad

      KOBE MVP, if he doesn’t get it, another highway robbery

    • Jonny

      hah, i totally won that prediction battle!!

    • Smush Walton

      Vlad Rad was worthless out there. 0 for 6 on 3 pointers. And another typical performance by Luke the Puke – airballs, blown layups.

      Next year we need to get rid of these two rags and get a decent player.

      I agree, we could get a decent back up forward to play either SF or PF.
