The lakers opened up their regular season against the new bully in LA, the Los Angeles Clippers. It’s weird saying that because in past years the clippers have been horrible, i mean HORRIBLE. The clippers are now a powerhouse in the west and are a favorite to win the NBA championship. So since Kobe is still out and the Lakers really dont have a go to scorer, they were supposed to get killed right? wrong… role players like Jordan Hill and Jordan Farmar really stepped up their game, catching the clippers off guard in what turned out to be a route of the hometown hero Clippers.
