Back in the '02-'03 season, the Lakers started wearing white uniforms for their Sunday home games and bumped up the start time for these games from 7:30 to 6:30. We're assuming the early start is a nod to folks who have work and/or school the next day... and to Jack Nicholson's after-game social schedule. And the white unis have that special Sunday go-to-meet'n-and-brunch vibe to them. We like.
Anyway, Lakes take on the Sacramento Kings this evening and can extend their lead in the Western Conference to 1-1/2 games over the San Antonio Spurs who lost earlier this afternoon to the in-desperate-need-of-a-victory, Phoenix Suns, 94-87, who are now 4-6 since acquiring Shaq.
