This is a quick Part I of our Lakers-C’s preview. Part II, in which we hear from a writer who covers the Lakers, will come early tomorrow morning.
For now, I’ll direct you two places:
• Kurt Helin at the top-notch Lakers blog Forum Blue & Gold asked me some questions about the current state of the Celtics. I answered them, and you can read our Q-and-A here. Topics include: What’s wrong with Ray Allen? How much of a burden is Rajon Rondo carrying? How is KG’s knee?
• Andrew and Brian Kamenetzky, the proprietors of the nice new Lakers blog on ESPN’s Los Angeles site, invited Kurt and I to do a sort of round-table e-mail exchange about the Celtics and Lakers. That is available here. We discuss everything from how Sheed is fitting in to why fans care so much about these regular-season games. We also offer our predictions for Sunday.
That’ll do for now. Look for Part II of this preview either very late tonight or early tomorrow.
