I don't want to back the Sacramento Kings as much as the next guy, but I can't get behind the Lakers with everything going on. The Lakers have not only been dealing with the loss of Kobe Bryant, but they just played last night and funeral type vibe with the tributes to the legend, and now they have to get on a plane to play the sorry Kings. The last thing the Lakers want to do is catch a flight to Sacramento and play another game. The Sacramento Kings stink, but it's the points or pass for me.
