Preseason GameThread #7: Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Lakers in San Diego- Nice place, but I wouldn't want to live there!

SD is such a strange place.

Warriors (0-0) vs Lakers (0-0) (Sorry but the preseason is MEANINGLESS.)

Tip-Off: 7:00pm PST

TV: None | Radio: KNBR 680

Blog Buddy: Silver Screen and Roll

Tonight's preseason festivity will take place in San Diego, California. Fortunately/ unfortunately I spent my undergrad years down in La Jolla. SD has a stunningly beautiful scenery. However, it's one of the worst sports towns in the nation and in more ways than one, it's B-rate by California standards.

I thank the hoops gods everyday that I don't have to wait for a random NBA appearance in my local town like they do down in San Diego. Instead I am treated to a team that has missed the playoffs 15 of the past 16 years via local TV/ radio, BART, and insane 880 traffic.

Since we've got a little Bay vs LA action here, I'd just like to take a second to point out that the San Francisco Giants (see McCovey Chronicles + SB Nation Bay Area) are just 1 game away from the World Series, while the much-maligned LA Dodgers are well... NOT!

JUMP because you're loving the SoCal bashing!

Predictions

  • Warriors fans bring it in the comments section of this game thread like it's the playoffs.
  • Lakers fans don't even know there's a game on tonight.
  • Shoot, Ron Artest doesn't even know the Lakers are playing tonight.
  • The Giants win the NLCS.
  • Dodgers fans watch the Giants win the NLCS.
  • Padres fans (all two of them) watch the Giants win the NLCS.
  • San Diego Clippers, San Diego Rockets, San Diego hoops fans root for the Warriors.
  • Warriors by 1.

Don't forget...
