I am a huge fan of basketball, and as a native Angeleno, the Lakers are, and always will be, my favorite team. With the addition of superstars Dwight Howard (from the Orlando Magic) and Steve Nash (from the Phoenix Suns), the Lakers starting line up is looking pretty killer. I’m sure this will be a very promising and exciting season for this Los Angeles team.
On Tuesday, the NBA (National Basketball Association) season started with a game between the LA Lakers and the 2011 Champion Dallas Mavericks, followed by a game against the Portland Trailblazers yesterday. The next game is scheduled against the LA Clippers – hometown rivalry! – on Friday. If you don’t have cable TV to watch the game at home, Barney’s Beanery on 3rd Street Promenade is a great place to enjoy the game in a sports bar environment! And if you have the means, catching a game LIVE at the Staples Center is a great trip idea too.
