Lakers, Oh So Perfect

The weather in LA isn’t the only thing that’s perfect folks… After facing their first real test of the year, the Los Angeles Lakers put a good ‘ol fashion beating on the Houston Rockets on Sunday night at Staples, 111-82.  The “new and improved” Hoston Rockets with offseason acquisition Ron Artest hung around for the first three quarters of the game but forgot to show up for the last 12 minutes.  Correct me if I’m wrong here, but Ron is know for his defense right?  The other night, I saw Brandon Roy from Portland bust-up Ron over and over again. I might be jumping the gun here but it looks like he might have lost a step.  The Lake Show on the other hand, are f-l-o-w-i-n-g. Kobe and Pau doing their thing, again, this time with some help from Jordan Farmar.  This team is a guaranteed lock for a top playoff spot, barring any major injuries of course. I’m just a little worried about those dreadful Celtics.  That whoopin’ they put on the Lakers in the finals last year is something I can’t get out of my mind. Sure, the Lakers have Bynum but how’s he gonna fair against the most intense player in the league, KG.  Better yet, playing in hostile environment is gonna be rougher for this kid.  Remember, he didn’t get the playoff experience that these young Lakers got last year.  Let’s hope he matures quick enough or else it’s gonna be another sour ending to this oh so perfect story…
