Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Laker-Timberwolves game at the Staples Center. Despite the rather lethargic play, it was absolutely delightful to watch what was, for long lengths of the game, pretty much a UCLA dominated affair. With Ariza, Farmar, and Kevin Love on the floor at the same time, I felt right at home despite the countless $C "fans" around me - it boggles my mind that they elect to sport that heinous color-scheme in public.
Witnessing K-Love's signature outlet pass in person brought chills down my back, and unleashed a seldom roar from the crowd. Seeing Farmar's individual skill up-close was equally thrilling. Most surprising, however, was Trevor Ariza's presence on the court. As a little talked about UCLA alum, he is representing our school in great fashion. Although he "only" had 14 pts, he seemed to be everywhere and has apparently made solid contributions all season long. So it's no wonder that players like Moser and Honeycutt are lining up to bear the four letters.
At times 30% of last night's game had and I'm sure many, many more will in the future.
