His “making it rain” game that is… Thats a clip of young Andrew becoming a 21 year old in style.
Yes! After watching that ridiculousness that was game 5 of the World Series, I am happy to say that the NBA season gets under way tonight. I have already alerted the peeps at work that I am out at 2p this afternoon, so I can go and get my spot all ready for the opening night double header. I can’t even concentrate here at work, because tonight starts my Lake show on the Road to Redemption from last season debacle at the hands of the Celts. So as I sit here at my desk, take a look at some stuff I found today on the boys and the League. As I find more I will share more… Can’t Wait for tip off!!!
The reigning MVP and the rest of the Lakers crew has officially started the march for the 2008-9 ‘Chip.
Kobe is saying 30 is the new 20.
L.O. is a little bit unhappy about the prospect of being the ultimate 6th man.
The e.s.p.n. pundits have them as a pre-season number 2

I haven’t posted anything else today because I cant think of anything else. Tonight is a big game, and a preview of something we will definitely see in the playoffs. The west is tight like gnat booty and I can’t wait to see them duke it out down the stretch and all throughout the postseason. This will be one year where no one will be complaining about first round series going 7 games. Here is a link to the espn.com preview of the game. If the Lakes win tonight they will be in a tie atop the pacific division. Its between these two teams and San Antone for who comes out of the west this year to take on Detroit. I say tonight will start out like most Laker games in Phoenix; the suns will get out to a large lead, the Lakers will crawl back into it toward half time, and then start out the third well. It’ll be a close game throughout the second half and it’ll come down to the last 4 or 5 minutes. But here is the thing, the Lakes are without their starting center, and this is Shaqs’ first game as a sun, this game is absolutely meaningless, but it’ll means so much. I can’t wait! Lets hope Shaq can still play, because that means we will be seeing a lot of Lakers and Suns games on ABC and TNT in the foreseeable future
Shaq plays for the Phoenix Suns. He shot out to the valley of the sun this morning and “passed” his physical. I still don’t know about this one. Apparently Steve Nash and Amare Stoudemire were the two pushing for this deal and they spoke with Shaq who told them he wouldn’t let them down. We’ll see, i just can’t imagine Shaq running with them, he can’t keep up with D Wade and Ricky, how will he keep up with the Suns. This is an obvious reaction move by the Suns because they only have a year or two left of a legit shot at getting a ‘chip and with the moves the Lakers made last week, they needed to do something. They could barely beat a banged up Laker team as it is, and when the playoffs start, I think Shaq works. the Suns will have at least Shed that soft label with the addition of the big fella. Now Ayson Kidd is just about guaranteed to be traded soon. We shall see. This NBA season is unbelievable, I am so happy I bought a new TV!
The Lakers have gotten rid of the expiring contract of Kwame Brown and traded him for Pau Gasol formerly of the Memphis Grizzlies. Wow, the D might not be at the level that it was but the O is about to be craaaaazy! If we can get him playing the 4 when Andrew gets back, oh my gawd. Think about that. When healthy this is the starting five: DFish, Kobe, Lamar,Pau, Andrew and then you have Ronny,Luke,Trevor Ariza and Sasha and Jordan coming off the bench. Claude have mercy. We can now officially start talking about ‘chips again!
