Sorry to say this isn't the same Kobe. He won't be blowing by anyone tonight

(not to be disrespectful to anyone's grandma or anything) but anyone's grandmother could blow past James Harden.

Whoa WTF? We have 2 back to backs this week. I had no idea we were playing the Suns tomorrow.

 

Guess it's better to get them over with earlier in the year but that's kind of harsh.

Today we have the Point guard, shooting guard positions in our favor. As well as the bench. Hopefully we win today so it doesn't matter if we win or lose tomorrow.

Always gotta think about winning. This team is going to need all the wins it can get.

So looks like were only missing Young, Kelly, and Ellington. Kelly and Ellington probably wouldn't get much burn anyway though.

How is the shooting guard position in our favor Harden is better then Kobe.

Offensively, maybe.

 

Defensively, he's not.

Kobe is just as bad defensively they both roam.

I can see the Lakers winning this game (as they did last year's opening game against the Clippers) and everyone freaking out and overrating this team.

 

bigfetz:  The Lakers won't have Xavier Henry either.

I'm ready for a level of competence when it comes to substitutions/rotations this year. So far it seems as though Scott isn't some petty little 16 year old the way MDA was/is.

I can also see the Lakers losing this game and everyone freaking out and underrating this team and 10 threads starting :)

Not being negative but...I think the ONLY advantage we have tonight is that we are at Home. Other then that....I don't see an advantage.

Also, I am happy to see our rookies tonight. But, it will be tough seeing " Nick Johnson " in a Rockets uniform tonight. I mean I REALLY wanted him in the draft in Purple & Gold. Dude was just a killer at AZ. And I was praying we could some how snatch him as well.

 

 

 

But anyways.....NBA Season is here!!!  Have fun fans.
