Writers Brian Booth and Fern Rea collaborated on this list, coming up with their combined top 10 list
With the 2013-2014 NBA schedule finally released, we here at the Lake Show Life thought it only fitting to take a close look at the up-coming schedule for our beloved Los Angeles Lakers. Myself, along with fellow writer Fernando Rea thought long and hard, and below is our top 10 MUST SEE a Lakers games next season.
10. Los Angeles Lakers @ Golden State Warriors – 10/30/13
With the NBA season having just opened up the night before, fans are still thirsty for Lakers action and they get a treat in game 2 of the season when the Lakers fly up to Oakland to play the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors field one of the best starting fives in the NBA with emerging superstar Steph Curry, sharp shooter Klay Thompson and recently acquired Andre Iguodala. The Oracle Arena’s normally frenzied crowd combined with the frenetic pace of the Warriors should make for an exciting, high scoring, up and down game early in the season.
9. Los Angeles Lakers @ Phoenix Suns – 12/23/13
The Lakers were blown out in both visits to Phoenix last season, against a laughable Suns’ squad. Here’s hoping Steve Nash can get his first win in Phoenix since being traded with a healthier Lakers’ squad.
8. New York Knicks @ Los Angeles Lakers – 3/25/2013
The Knicks only visit to the Lakers this season. Kobe vs. Carmelo Anthony is a great match-up, as not only are both prolific scorers, but are also close friends. As an added bonus, the fans can begin their 2014 courtship of potential free agent to be Anthony.
