Lakers Roundtable: The Times' Mark Medina and the Oklahoman's Darnell Mayberry discuss Lakers-Thunder matchup

February 26, 2011 |  9:25 pm

Among the highlights of my conversation with the Oklahoman's Darnell Mayberry

-- Mayberry breaks down Oklahoma City's trade that sent Jeff Green, Nenad Krstic and the Clippers' 2012 first-round draft pick to the Boston Celtics for Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson.

-- Mayberry explains how the Thunder would match up with the Lakers in the NBA playoffs.

-- Mayberry explains why Oklahoma City has its hands full against the Lakers, especially considering that Perkins is not expected to play for another two to three weeks.

-- Mayberry predicts where the Thunder will finish in the Western Conference.

You can follow Mayberry's work at the Oklahoman's website and on Twitter.
