My first Lakers home game

November 11, 2012

The Los Angeles Lakers have been my favorite basketball team ever since I was a kid. I have been to many away games (Seattle, Portland, and New York) but never been to a home game at Staples Center. A few weeks ago I decided to just buy tickets and finally go.

Such a dream come true. The Lakers won 101-77 against the Golden State Warriors, who had a lot of key players injured though. It was the first game since Mike Brown was fired, and the crowd often erupted “We want Phil (Jackson)!” chants.

Definitely going to more games in the future, but I can cross that off the list of things I want to do.
