The Credits: "Guess Who's [Not] Coming To Dinner"

New, comments

After a much welcome and needed day-off, the Lakers are set to host the Dallas Mavericks in what will surely be the most awkward game of the young season. If you somehow failed to notice the lack of No. 7 in Purple & Gold, let me take you back to Dec. 8th, when it appeared the Lakers had pulled off the Blockbuster Trade this side of 2008, only to have it unravel right before their eyes. Feelings were hurt, things were said and Lamar Odom requested and was granted a one-way ticket out of LAX.

Fast forward to the present day, the Lakers stand at a respectable 9-5, having gone 7-3 in the last ten games. Kobe Bryant has led the way with four (!!!) 40+ games, in his 16th NBA Season. Can he maintain this long enough for the Lakers Offense to come around and balance things out, or will Kobe Bryant continue to remind us of his basketball prowess?

Tonight's game looks to be filled with emotion and intrigue, and hey, our favorite NBA Crew, TNT, will be handling the game! See y'all in the 2nd Q!
