The Lakers kick off the exhibition season tonight at Honda Center, and as far as meaningless pretend games go, this one ought to be relatively interesting.  Fans and scribes alike will get their first look at Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol on the floor as frontcourt mates, and we'll see how the LO Experiment is faring.  No doubt Phil Jackson will tinker around with a few different combinations, though, tonight and as the preseason progresses as he works through his many options.  I can't be the only one wondering if the LO, Kobe, Ariza, Pau, Bynum fivesome he tested on Saturday has legs.  Everyone's going to have to share minutes during the season, anyway.  Might as well start now.
