A look at some games of interest in the Lakers' 2010-11 schedule

OK, there is more to the Lakers' schedule than playing the Miami Heat and its "Super Friends" of Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh on Christmas Day at home in Los Angeles and facing their rivals, the Boston Celtics and newly signed Shaquille O'Neal, on Jan. 30 at Staples Center.

The Lakers actually will play 82 games, starting with the opener Oct. 26, at Staples Center against the Houston Rockets. That will be the night the Lakers will celebrate their 2009-10 championship, get their rings and then move forward in their quest to three-peat.

Some games of interest are when the Lakers play at Phoenix, their Western Conference finals foes, Oct. 29. The Lakers travel to Denver for an Nov. 11 match-up. The Nuggets took the Lakers to six games in the conference finals in 2009.

The Lakers have a six-game trip from Dec. 9-19 that has a stop in Washington, where they will probably visit the White House and President Obama the day before playing the Washington Wizards.

The Lakers host Oklahoma City, a young and talented Thunder team that took L.A. to six games in the conference first-round playoff series, on Jan. 17, Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The Lakers' longest road trip of the season is seven games, from Feb. 4-16, and it includes games in Boston (Feb. 10) and Orlando (Feb. 13).

The Lakers play at Miami on March 10, and that's part of a four-game trip that starts in San Antonio and goes to Atlanta and Miami before finishing in Dallas.

The Lakers finish the regular season April 13 at Sacramento.

Are Ebanks & Caracter signed yet?

Saw in The Orange County Registar that Shaq was asked who the best player who he played with was and he said, Wade and La Bron were great but Kobe was the BEST!!

I hope Artest does not call in sick when the Lakers visit the White House and Obama this time. It will be interesting to hear what Obama has to say about Artest..also wondering how many games the Lakers will win in Portland and any game against Bobcat....

How is it that we can conceivably lose to a team called "The Bobcats?" That's not a basketball team name. That's a girls softball team name. And I mean a "girls" softball team name as opposed to a "women's" softball team name.


Is Charlotte constantly beseiged by ravenous Bobcats? Because when I think Charlotte, I am certainly not thinking "Bobcat."


Do the Raptors and the Bobcats hire the same guy to come up with team names? I mean, come on.


What do we play for? RINGS!!!


Lakers Today.. Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.


GO LAKERS!!!

Good Afternoon NewMexioLakerLifer. Shaq is starting to think about his legacy and his place in history. He knows he won't be playing to much longer so he's trying to make things right. I ain't mad at Shaq he did what he had to do in the best interest of him, just as anybody on this Blog would do in the best interest of them and their family. I'm not against Shaq's number being retired down the line.

Soon Shaq will say that the Celtics are the best team he ever played with and Celtics players are the best teammates he ever had..Doc Rivers is the best coach he ever played for, etc... He might even say the Celtics is the best organization in the NBA.

It doesn't make any sense for him to say this now- directly after he signed with the hated Celtics. His bridges are FOREVER burned with the Lakers. Plus, you can never believe anything that guy says.

True, we all know he will do this, still...I'm still in favor as his number being
retired as a Laker a oule years after he retires!

Thank you David stern for make my team's schedule balanced and giving us a great chance to make a stab at 70.
I don't know what all the hype is about the Oklahoma City vs Lakers games they are not Seattle Supersonics who had rivalry with us in the 90's in Pac Div. The lakers will handle them much easier this season with barnes and ebanks in the line up and an improved Kobe knee condition .I think Oklahoma dropped the ball by not going after a big man vet like Brandan haywood or tyson chandler that could have taken them over the hump..

i dont know why people are giving praises to one year wonder Oaklahoma City Thunders. They are a better than most of NBA teams but a far away from title contending team in my opinion. Sure, they took Lakers to 6 bruised battles in the playoffs but Kobe was injured at that time..didnt people notice kobe was less than 50% of himself at that time>?? again, give all the props to thunders but come on..they are not a proven title contending team yet and we have to test them when we have a healthy kobe bryant

The Thunder have that one thing the Lakers would love to have...KD. God, that is one of the few super players I would like to see on the Lakers(yes I know I'm dreaming!). Feb 23 is already on my calandar...@ Portland baby! After being born & raised in the SFV for 53 years, but due to the economy and being laid off after 23 years with Siemens I have relocated myself and family to Blazer country! A Laker fan in Blazer country(Portland)...good grief! I'll be wearing my P & G & packin my glock...LOL

me watch baskeball me like game. game needs be fatser and better for it to be better than soccer go chivas lackers suck

Back about 2 years ago, before I had the quadcore, I bought for $25, an Intel E2200 2.2Ghz dual core (Core2Duo / Pentium Dual-Core). Its been sitting in a drawer, exposed, with food chocolate wrappers and crumbs all over it. Then I also had a motherboard, a Gigabyte GA-EX38-DS4, Socket 775 X38 chipset board. ed hardy
