Lakers Seeking Revenge Against the Bobcats

It’s almost unheard of for the Lakers to be this motivated for a game against a non-contender, but they sound fired up heading into tonight‘s matchup against a different-looking Charlotte squad. The LA Times reports: “That’s why Lakers forward Matt Barnes, who probably will play Friday against Charlotte after missing 25 games following right knee surgery, values his return for other reasons. ‘The way they celebrated and were talking trash the last time the team was out there, that’s really been on everyone’s mind,’ Barnes said. ‘They’re aware of that. So it’ll be a different outcome tomorrow. I guarantee.’ … ‘They’ve been successful for sure and it’s something that bothers us,’ Pau Gasol said of the Bobcats. ‘Hopefully tomorrow, they won’t be and we’ll be getting our way and paying them back for the disaster game we had over there this season.’ … ‘They’re talented individuals and they elevate their play when they go against us,’ Kobe Bryant said. ‘If they played the rest of the league the way they play against us, they’d be up there in the playoffs.’”

    I feel like this headline is a Jeopardy question. “What is, the least likely NBA headline you’d see all season long, Alex?”

    Kinda reminds me of the bully in 6th grade, the 200lb one with the peach fuzz on his face, waiting after school for the 60lb kid with the glasses and plastic covers on his bed..

    The worse of a team the Cats are, the more likely the Lakers are gonna lose. All Lakers fans have seen this. There’s always some random on that Bobcats team that decides to have a career night.

    Kobe’s response is the only one that doesnt make them sound like a bunch of losers. Seriously, Matt Basketball Wifebeating Barnes and Mr. Euro Soft Serve need to stfu. Our roster isnt much better then a D League team at this point yet we are still in their heads. LOL

    If you’re LA you’re grinding your teeth and if you’re Charlotte, start smiling to LA about the fact they beat them before and more capable of beating them again. LOL.

    It was a practice game for LA and a shooting practice for Kobe lol. Absolutely boring game.
