Lakers' Steve Blake, Shannon Brown and Matt Barnes share their favorite Halloween costumes

October 31, 2010 |  1:55 pm

Childhood memories were immediately stirred up when several Lakers recalled their favorite Halloween costumes.

Some proved embarrassing, such as when forward Matt Barnes dressed up like a girl as a freshman at Del Campo High School in Sacramento. Some waxed nostalgic, such as when guard Shannon Brown dressed up like former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan. And others conjured up laughs, such as when Steve Blake dressed up like Mr. T.

Even though the Lakers play Sunday night on Halloween against Golden State, the holiday's certainly been on their mind. Forward Devin Ebanks revealed on his Twitter account that he hosted a Halloween party at the Green Door in Hollywood. After joking that he'll dress up as former wrestler Ric Flair, forward Lamar Odom asked fans via Twitter to send him pictures of their costumes. And Brown added that he's seen a picture of Odom sporting the Flair outfit.

"That dude is crazy," Brown said Saturday after the Lakers' practice in El Segundo. "He's got the hair, the jacket and the feather scarf. It was hilarious."
