The Los Angeles Lakers may not be the most exciting team in the NBA, but they still have certain players that should draw plenty of attention throughout the season. There are still many stories circling the organization, creating interesting matchups next year. Here are five games that stand out the most.
The Lakers start their season at home against Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets. There is no doubt that the crowd will get riled up when seeing Howard, and will try to will their team to victory. The Lakers are clearly outmatched, but a win could generate some early season excitement.
Phil Jackson returning to Staples Center. Carmelo Anthony displaying what could have been. Jeremy Lin against his old team. There are plenty of storylines, and both teams are currently in similar situations. If anything, there should be plenty of drama surrounding this matchup.
The last game of the season could signify the end of Steve Nash’s career. Nash has always been a true professional and is arguably the best point guard of his generation. It would only be fitting that he ends his career the right way.
This game could display two organizations going in completely different directions. It is likely that the Clippers will be vying for a top seed in the West, while the Lakers could find themselves looking at the lottery. Expect plenty of discontent should this be the situation.
The Lakers are a constant on Christmas day, and have the joy of playing an old teammate in Pau Gasol. Gasol had some great years with the team and was always a true professional. Playing on Christmas will no doubt bring a lot of viewers, and this could be the most entertaining game of the season for the organization.
