JediMAC,

Have a blast at the game.  I saw Lebron at All Star Weekend last year and was amazed at his athletic ability.  Truly a sight to see play in person.  Get ready to see him jump out of the gym.

DBK



Well, that "Ultimate Showdown" turned out to be a major bust since Kobe went down for the count just 5 minutes into the game...   :-\

It was fun watching LeBron in person though, despite that stupid mask.  He was one assist short of his first career Triple Double, and had a chance for a game winning 3-point shot with just a second to go, but fortunately missed it.  LeBron had a couple monster jams last night too, so that added to the excitement...

Nice to see the Lakers pull together without Kobe.  Played some good "team" ball, as I'm sure several of you were about to point out...   ;)

Just bummed, really bummed, to miss out on an amazing Kobe vs. LeBron showdown, akin to the Jordan vs. 'Nique matchups of years past.   :'(

I think he faked it so he wouldn't have to face King James 1-on-1...  :-X

Nah, just kidding.  Everyone knows that LAkers like Kobe always give 100% every night.  ::)

I just read that same rumor over at CNNSi.com this afternoon, but it sounded like it didn't materialize (last night).  Perhaps the talks continue.  Might do the Wolves good to do some sort of shake up, and I personally wouldn't be too sad to see Spree go, for the right return.

Nope, I saw the close up video of it.  That is one nasty-ass ankle sprain.  5 games to come back will be fast, mark my words.

Yeah, I'm rather surprised certain Wolves fans haven't used this excellent (and rare) opportunity these past few weeks to really humble the Laker fans around here.   ;)

Seen the news that Rudy T. is contemplating resigning from the Lakers?  Speculation 'round here is running rampant, including the following:

1)  Health issues - but not cancer (this seems to be the most obvious choice)

2)  Had a spat with Laker owner over the "boring" style of ball the Lakers have been playing all season.  Buss wanted to see the ol' Showtime run 'n' gun style return to L.A. this season.  Didn't happen.

3)  He's already learned that Kobe is uncoachable, and doesn't want to deal with him anymore.

Take your pick, but as always, L.A. is the center of the hoops universe when it comes to stupid ass drama.   ::)

I caught that last night on ESPN before I went to bed, and then again this morning on Sportscenter.  The crazy idea that's been thrown out there?  Phil Jackson coming back to coach again.  You definitely have all the drama out there Matt, As the Lakers World Turns.  At least it sounds like this time it actually isn't Kobe's fault, and the stress/pressure was just wearing on Rudy T. and his health.
