The Los Angeles Lakers may have won last night versus the Hornets but it was their play, or lack there of, against the Rockets which may have brought this season's best put-down of the Lakers' poor start.
LA ha the lead on the Rockets for most of the game until a total collapse came late in the game and Harden took over to stun the Lakers in a 107-105 come-from-behind win.
The win was so epic that it brought out a tremendous summation of the Lakers' season by the Rockets radio announcer - "The Lakers just pooped their big-boy pants."
Relive that glorious moment and a catch phrase sure to be all the rage this season one more time (h/t Ball Don't Lie).

According to ESPN and a number of sources Kahn offered the Lakers a package built around Derrick Williams and Pekovic for Pau. Since he joined the Lakers you could make a case that the Lakers go as Pau goes, and since last years playoffs it's been very mediocre fare for both.
Why would the Wolves do this? Clearly we are building a foreign based team and Pau is one...
