After getting knocked out of the playoffs in the 2nd round for the 2nd straight year, the Los Angeles Lakers made sweeping changes. Adding Hall of Fame point guard Steve Nash, stud center Dwight Howard and role players Antwain Jameson and Jodie Meeks. All the while keeping their core of Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Metta World Peace in tact. These moves should put the Lakers right at the top of the Championship talk. On October 19th you will get your chance to see the new look Lakers at the Thomas and Mack Center as they face their Pacific Division rival Sacramento Kings. This should be a high scoring affair as the Kings are a solid young team led by Tyreke Evans and Demarcus Cousins plus rookie Thomas Robinson.
