Lakers set to play Raptors in Toronto: 1 p.m.? That's 10 a.m. to the Lakers

The Lakers have had tough games against the Raptors at Toronto's Air Canada Centre in the past, and they expect Sunday's game to be no different.

"We've had our difficulties up here over the years," Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said before his team played the Raptors.

Part of the problem is that the game starts at 1 p.m., which is 10 a.m. West Coast time.

The Lakers seem to have a hard time adjusting to the time difference.

Yeah, so? What's your point? It's a meaningless early season practice game against this year's version of the LeBrons. What happened last year when the Lakers didn't feel like playing on Xmas? I don't mind the LeBrons getting a false sense of security. A for your prediction, go ahead and put me on that bandwagon. Anyone who knows anything about the Lakers knows that this game means nothing in the long run. zzzzzzzzzzz

Apparently the Lakers only feel like playing when they win!

888- Tell the season ticket holders how the Lakers really feel.

LO better start passin' out the candy and coffee to get the team awake (though, no doubt, Kobe's been up since 4 a.m. working on his knew "split-finger" shot).

Rise and shine! Time for a resounding W!

Seely_Iggy asked on an earlier thread about MM's return. Lakerholics, you just have to make it through one more day without him.

Unfortunately, our bench doesn't run nearly as deep as the Lakers' bench, so when my vacation overlapped Mark's, we were down to Brez and Brad filing daily reports from practices and games. Indeed, we were missing the analysis and web meanderings to which you've grown accustomed.

Luckily for you, we've banned Mark from leaving again until the Lakers' season comes to a conclusion. Hah! I'm kidding. We might give him a day off here or there.

Actually, I am a season ticket holder. What exactly do you want me to tell myself? At the stupid Christmas game, the season ticket holders stay home and either gift or sell their tickets. The people who reacted the way they did at last year's waste of time were not the season ticket holders.
