Lakers Roundtable: L.A. Times reporters discuss Lakers-Suns series

May 20, 2010 |  2:43 pm

It's served as the highlight in the Lakers Roundtable's short history. That is, whenever The Times' Mike Bresnahan, Broderick Turner and I get together and discuss the Lakers, it's always over chips and dip.

There have been a few hiccups, for sure. The first time I brought nearly expired dip, leading Bresnahan to wonder if he would die of food poisoning. But for the next few roundtables, I've always made sure to check the expiration tag before purchasing. But my parents grew concerned that making this a ritual would only contribute to our nation's obesity problem.

So we present to you another segment of Lakers Roundtable -- featuring protein bars and shakes. Hey, the Lakers aren't the only ones who need to remain healthy for the postseason.

Among the highlights:

--Bresnahan and I continue to make Turner wonder why he still talks to us.

--We discuss whether Phoenix can make any adjustments to stop the Lakers' offense.

--We weigh the likelihood that the Lakers and Celtics meet in the NBA Finals.

-- Mark Medina
