Don’t overlook them, don’t overlook them, don’t overlook them, don’t overlook them, don’t overlook them.
The Lakers don’t have much talent to start with. And they’re very injured. The may or may not play tonight’s game with three total players. But this is an NBA game against an NBA team with NBA players, and you have to show up and do your job. Plus, with the All-Star break ahead, it’s going to be extremely easy to start glancing out of the corner of your eye at what’s coming.
But you just can’t look past the Lakers. Heck, you actually might be able to, but only do it for like three quarters.
Three Big Things
1. Don’t overlook them.
2. Don’t overlook them.
3. Don’t overlook them.
