Thank the heavens that Mia/Orl took the NBAtv slot this night. Should be a fun one to watch.

Lakers looked tough today against the Celtics. Bynum is a force in the paint and it really really helps him dominate when he is allowed to stand in the lane 3 or 4 secs BEFORE he receives the pass down low right in front of the rim.

Get ready Grizz Nation, Bynum literally camps in the lane and I saw only 1 3sec call today on him and the Lakers. We are going to get a steady diet of Bynum in the lane 5 or 6 secs on Tuesday night.

Lakers are good at home but have been horrible on the road this season. They just lost at Detroit and at Washington back to back.

Bynum is the real deal and I think he will own Gasol.

The key is for Kobe to have another bad road game.

This game cannot come quick enough!! Bynum, shmynum! Own this fool Marc! Would be nice to see a Zbo sighting as well! Hopin this is a sell out based on Grizz play as of late and not just because the Lakers are in town. I'm sure that's wishful thinking though. Would love to see those rally flags in action though. Man I can't wait! GO GRIZZ!

Amen, Bynum ain't owning Gasol. Should be a good battle between the big men. Lakers shouldn't play Bynum anyway he always injures himself against us. ;)

And this game was announced sold out earlier this week. :D

Hope Rudy can play. Z-Bo would be icing on the cake.

If Zach doesn't play maybe LH should think about some Marc with Hamed up front.

It would be cool to have Zach come into the game, midway through the first period. It would be a good way to fire up the home crowd, and SHUT UP the Faker Fans.

No way will he "own" Gasol. Bynum has the BB smarts of a 2nd grader compared to Professor Gasol. Gasol is going to show everyone why he should've been the starting center for the All star game. hehe.

Can I get a Hallelujah! lol I'll give the guy the respect he deserves, but as far as "owning" Gasol, I very highly doubt that. Sure Bynum was the starting C in the all-star game....but don't forget who votes and the city he plays in as far as that goes. IMO Gasol is a much more well-rounded player than Bynum.

*And about the sell-out....what I meant was, I hope it's sold out because the Grizzlies are playing phenomenal bball as of late and it's a crucial game, not bc the Faker fans bought up all the tickets lol.

can you imagine what it would be like with say 4:30 left in the 1st qtr and big #50, headband and all, pops up and starts to make his way to the scorer's table? The roof would come off of FEF

This is the one game of the year that i sort of dread actually going to because I know our section will have several, if not a lot of, freakin Laker fans. And they are so effin obnoxious. 16 world championships does give a fan base a reason to be pretty confident, but those guys are off the charts. And I mean when Kobe drinks a cup of Gatorade, these guys (and females) are almost beside themselves.

I would love to see ZBo back, and I'm really concerned that Rudy won't play because of the concussion (?).

Ultimately though, if they aren't ready to go, sit them. We need them more later than now. Plus, I would love to beat the Lakers without ZBO and Rudy.


Possibly a big game for playoff seeding.
