Here is a pretty concise summary of the Bobcats' success against the Lakers, presented in a conversation between my wife and myself last night:
Her: “So, the Bobcats next game is tomorrow, right? Who are they playing?”
Me: “Yes and the Lakers.”
Her: “Oh, then the Bobcats will probably lose?”
Me: “Actually, they have won 6 of their last 7 against the Lakers.”
Her: “So, they have Kobe and not much else?”
Me: “No, they won the title last year and were in the finals the year before as well. They are very good.”
Her: “How do the Bobcats do so well against them, then?”
