I know...I know...I shouldn't even bring up the Lakers in this forum, let alone in the the headline but I do have a gripe to vent and my wife is unwilling to understand, let alone listen. As I am watching the Lakers game (er...the Suns game) on tv tonight I can't help but think, man....the Lakers are playing at home again. Again, I know...I know...every team plays the same amount of home and away games, but their schedule seems a bit absurd. Of their first 21 games only 4 are on the road!!! Talk about an incredible head start to begin the season! I always hold the belief that the first month of the season is critical to setting a tone for the remainder of the season. Therefore, I consider the Lakers schedule an unfair advantage on their behalf. I guess the real reason why it stings so much is the fact that the Kings have started, what seems like, every season in memory on a road trip. Does anyone else find this a little hard to swallow??
