Yesterday we took a trip up to L.A and the Staples Center to watch the game between The Lakers and Orlando Magic. The Lakers haven’t performed as expected this year and after 5 games they fired Mike Brown as Head Coach and replaced him with Mike D’Antoni. Before last nights game the Lakers record was 8-8. Eight losses and eight wins. The last home game before the team hits the road for 3 games away. The Lakers seemed to have full control, but they lost the game in the fourth quarter were they were outscored and lost 113 – 103.

The Laker fans seems to had enough out of Paul Gasol  and Cbssports reports that  “Paul Gasol could be the issue at hand. The Lakers had a defensive rating of 95.2 with him on the court, but the offense was 88.8 when he was playing. There didn’t seem to be much of a balance with the Lakers, and that really was their main issue. It will continue to be something the Lakers and D’Antoni struggle to figure out until the team is relatively healthy and able to build some chemistry and continuity.” 

So we’ll see if he gets traded. But remember how good he can be if he gets his ass together. Like during this last summer Olympics.

I had fun though and here’s a video of something that will put a smile on your face too:)
