We all know about the Lakers and their struggles. In fact, you can't RUN AWAY from the Lakers and their struggles, even if you want to. This failed experiment of a team seems to dominate the NBA news landscape, every single game of their somehow finding their way onto national television.
There's really no need for me to say anything about them, and I won't. My teams have suffered entirely too much at the hands of the evil empire for me to feel any remorse now.
Anyway, the story on our side is short and sweet. The Lakers are fast, so we won't get any Hash sightings unless this turns into a blowout. The Thunder recently signed Reggie Williams, and he could see some burn tonight under the right circumstances. He's an excellent scoring guard, and works especially well in faster-paced offenses.
That's all I've got, because the internet was down at my house last night. Let's take care of business and keep it real.
Prediction: Oklahoma City Thunder 121, Los Angeles Lakers 101
