Bismack Biyombo 4.6 points, 0.3 assists, 6.4 rebounds

PREDICTION
-Charlotte is a bit of a train wreck, pretty obviously the worst team in the league, but they have a great deal of youth in the starting lineup and Ramon Sessions and Ben Gordon coming off the bench. It's conceivable that they will try to run and have some success against the aging Lakers, but in the end LA should hold them off and win handily.

4th game in 6 nights so the team might be a bit tired, but hopefully playing in front of the home crowd will get them going. It's against the Bobcats so I expect a victory and another win towards .500. :man1:

Bobcats always give us problems, but at the same time they really suck right now, we're at home, for the first time in a while I feel comfortable predicting a win.

Easy win.
"The first time I ever saw my uniform hanging in the locker I put it on right away, and it just felt like I was putting on golden armour. From that day forward, I just called it 'the golden armour', it just felt like there was something mystical and magical about it" - Kobe Bryant.

Now is definitely not the time to suck against the Bobcats. Matt Carroll isn't in the league anymore is he?

I'll pencil in a win but we will make it interesting by playing dumb basketball chucking 3's instead of going in the paint so it will be much closer than it needs to be, but I'm seeing a win anyway.

I haven't used this phrase in like 2 or 3 seasons, but this has TRAP written all over it. Except I said that when we were like really good, so it's just a normal game now.

The Bobcats were beating this team during our recent championships, we'll see how this one goes.

Thanks. I have LP (can't believe I didn't know what he meant). But the game is not showing up on the channels so that I can schedule it to be taped. Weird.

Pau is starting tonight. :jam2:

Source: https://twitter.com/Lakers/status/281109232386994176

He claims to have regained his "explosiveness" which was lacking at the start of the season. Hopefully he'll be more in the post
"I don't want to be the next Michael Jordan, I only want to be Kobe Bryant."

-Kobe Bean Bryant

"Basketball, unlike football with its prescribed routes, is an improvisational game, similar to jazz. If someone drops a note, someone else must step into the vacuum and drive the beat that sustains the team."
