The excitement for tonight's game is off the charts, where the new look Lakers will roll out their new aquisition, Pau Gasol. Gasol gives LA a low post presence that they have been desperatly missing since Shaq went East to Miami. We will begin to see what the transition period for Kobe and Pau might be; will it be an instant connection or take some time? When the team finally does gel,the 2-man game that Kobe and Pau could run in the triangle should be impressive. The skills of both players allow for a variety of options out of the triangle. Both Kobe and Pau should benefit from eachother and increase their scoring percentage. And when Andrew Bynum gets back, man, LA will have 2 versatile 7-footers down low. It will be up to the Lakers shooters like Derek Fisher, Jordan Farmar, Sasha Vujacic, and Trevor Ariza to hit open shots when presented to them due to the increased double teams. Also, the forwards like Lamar Odom, Luke Walton, and Vladimir Radmanovic should also see more open shots as they facilitate the triangle. When Healthy, the team has the players to run the offense the way it was intended again. Hopefully the transition will be smooth and quick. Tonight we will see a glimpse of what could be, and as a Laker fan, I hope its magic.
