Video: Shannon Brown Dunks Over Mikki Moore

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.

Meanwhile, early-October Laker fans were duly rewarded by Shannon Brown’s astounding throwdown on Golden State’s Mikki Moore last night in the O.C.

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.
