The Lakers are back on national television again, and again we ask ourselves why that’s the case. The team is dysfunctional at the moment, especially on the road. Of course, if C Dwight Howard doesn’t play and F Pau Gasol ends up back in the starting lineup once again, matters might turn out to be better for this team in the long run, knowing that this roster needs a shakeup in a big way. This is like the Super Bowl for the Timberwolves though, as they would love nothing more than to beat the Lakers in front of their fans in a season where very little is going right on the injury front. The opportunity is there to get the job done though, through outworking the Lakers. That’s what the Phoenix Suns did two nights ago, and that’s why the T’Wolves are going to do on Friday. Minnesota isn’t the better of these two teams, but as we have seen before with LA, if G Kobe Bryant can’t put the team on his back, there is a real chance that it is going to fall apart.
