That's what I'm talkin about

The Lakers picked up another W last night taking care of business against the Sacramento Queens. They had opened up a good sized lead early on only to blow it as the Queens got back to within 5 by the end of the 3rd when Kobe picked up his 4th foul and had to sit. Then in the 4th the Lakers blew it back open and coasted to an easy victory. Easy enough that Andrew Bynum and Ronny Turiaf got action in, always great to see. Kobe ended up with 36 points, 6 rebounds, and a season high 10 assists. It's good to see him getting everyone else more involved early on as in the two games back from the break it seems to be helping as Lamar has played well both times and it will definitely be necessary for the stretch run.

Well the Lakers didn't make any moves and as much as I was hearing and was hoping for something to happen we all must remember Phil Jackson rarely made midseason moves because of the difficulty of picking up the triangle offense on the run. It looks as if the offense is flowing better lately and maybe it's time that the team is all starting to get it to run on all cylinders so perhaps no move may have been better. The interesting news of the night though was the talk that Dr. Buss had talked to the owner of the Timberwolves about KG, so perhaps that is why no move was made now to open up space in the offseason for the Ticket to come to town? I can only dream.

And finally I came across this story in My Yahoo and thought it was interesting. Now some 30 year old man tried to hit on some underage girl and said he wanted to do an "R. Kelly" on her. The fact that this girl was 11 is disgusting and the guy should be charged with something but the judge ruled that the prosecution could not use the testimony including the term R. Kelly as part of its proceedings so the prosecution had to drop the case. But the term "R. Kelly" is now in the Urban Dictionary as "having sex with an underage girl." I guess the Urban Dictionary isn't good enough to hold up in court.

Coming off the big win on Tuesday the Wolverines travel to Columbus where it will be extremely difficult to pull off the upset considering the Bucknuts are coming off of a win at East Lansing and considering how difficult road games are in the Big Ten, to steal one in a place like that is just crazy. Horton could always pull a Kobe and singlehandedly drop 40 and win the game and I can only hope. Let's Go Blue!
