In Rematch of Last Year NBA Finals, Lakers Beat Orlando 98-92
In a rematch of last years finals, the Lakers beat the Orlando Magics. The Orlando Magics do not appear to be playing at the same level as last year, but played the Lakers tough. Kobe Bryant had an off game, but the bench led by Jordan Farmer and Shannon Brown gave the Lakers the sparked that they needed. The Lakers now embark on a eight game road trip starting with Cleveland Cavaliers and Lebron James on Thursday with the best record in the NBA.
On the road trip, the Laker will be stopping by the White house and meet with Obama on Monday. In honor of Martin Luther King, many NBA players, including Kobe Bryant wore a specially designed shoe that is not available to the retail market.
Shannon Brown of the Lakers will be participating in the Slam dunk Contest during the NBA All Star game next month.
