New look Lakers don’t look so good…

The new look Los Angeles Lakers lost their opener last night, 99 – 91, falling to the Dallas Mavericks in the Staples Center.  Both Dwight Howard and Steve Nash were less than impressive.  Kobe was still Kobe.  This will likely increase the building pressure on Lakers coach Mike Brown.  That being said, I expect them to get it figured out and get it done.  We shall see, it is one game, one game people!  In the other showcase match up, Miami beat Boston 120 – 107.  The big headline from this game was the flagrant foul called on Rajon Rondo against Dwyane Wade, Rondo grabbing Wade with both hands around his neck and clothes lining him.  Later, Wade said he had his kids watching and he was glad he had maintained his composure in the face of that kind of “punk play”.  These two teams do not like each other and there will be more games to see how this animosity unfolds.
