Andrew Bynum Is Not A Fan Of The Celtics (Understatement)

With all the gladhanding and hugging going on around the NBA, it is good to see that there are some rivalries that still elicit strong emotional feelings. The Lakers really don't like the Celtics. Don't believe me? Ask Andrew.

One mention of the Lakers' game Sunday against the Boston Celtics, and Bynum shouted across the Lakers' locker room: "We're going at they head. We're going at the Celtics' rack. Yo, we going at the Celtics' rack. At they head." Why the strong words? "Because we don't like them boys," Bynum said after the Lakers salvaged their ugly three-game road trip Friday night with a 105-102 win against the Timberwolves at Target Center.

Bring it on Andrew. We'll save a handicap parking spot for you.

In other Lakers news, Pau's feelings are getting hurt again.

Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol takes trade rumors in stride - ESPN Los Angeles

While the rumor of his imminent departure was obviously overblown this time around, there was some substance behind it. According to multiple league sources, the Lakers have continued to field calls and listen to offers for the talented Spaniard. While there were talks with the Houston Rockets in recent days, nothing became serious because the Lakers aren't inclined to move Gasol unless they can get an All-Star-caliber player in return, most likely a point guard. "Nothing surprises me anymore," said Gasol, who had 12 points, 11 rebounds and made a game-saving block in Friday's win. "It's never pleasant because it kind of puts you on edge, but it's going to be like this I think for the rest of these next six days."

It would be a shame if Pau was distracted during our game. Maybe our guys should whisper trade rumors in his ear while he's at the free throw line.
