I spent some time walking around Santa Monica Wednesday night, checking out the bars to see the interest in the Dodgers-Cardinals game. You probably won’t be surprised to find out that there were almost as many people watching the first Lakers preseason game as Round One @ The Ravine. That said, most of the bars were actually half-empty. Interest in the NLDS here is tepid at best, per the not-too-distant disappointments. There’ll be very little reax unless there’s an NLCS to be endeavored.

Despite the Lakers owning the moment in the NBA these days, I can’t remember this much preseason excited about the team. I have a sneaking feeling Phil Jax & Kobe may indeed shot for 70 wins, and if everyone remains healthy (a BIG if) I think that’ll be easily attainable.
Of course, that can all change in less-than-second.
