With Bynum out until December something, and Kobe shutting it down in London after 6 minutes and the TWolves having their way in a meaningless game, I was wonder if there was any chance that the Lakers might get off to a slow start this season. In a word, no. We know that the schedule giveth and taketh, that it all balances out. But obviously any of us would prefer for the Clippers to have an easy November to build momentum and confidence, and why not wring some early losses out of the hated champs, just for fun and to make them human.
I don't know which is worse, how easy the early Laker schedule looks or how hard the early Clipper schedule seems. Kind of an amusing comparison.
