Losing is not an option. Its the Celtics, the game after Dr. Buss' passing. You just DO NOT lose this game.

They're still a decent team but without rondo we have three big reasons to win this game:
Mid tier team without their best player
Home game
Emotional game

Now if we do not respond with a win, or Dwight doesn't respond with a winning impact (we will know) I know the season is hopeless.
Gauge is this game to continue hope for this team or not.

Slava said it best, winning vs your biggest rival at home after Dr. Buss passing is the Lakers only option, losing is not. Add that to the fact that you are running out of room for losing anymore games.

I want to see emotion being shown tomorrow night, I want the players to play with passions and heart for JB, I don't want to see the typical Staples crowd, i want these fans to show for once that they are true Laker fans and that they will cheer their hearts out. For once I want to stop seeing these wannabe celeb sitting front row worrying about their $4500 suits or $5000 dress, I want to see fans not business minded individuals. Go do that after the game.

Win this game....just win this game. Forget about all the drama, this summer, etc. It's too fitting that we play the Celtics...

I think we win this one, I'm not sure how much effort Dwight will put in but I can see Kobe having a great game....
