Lakers Return to Honda Center Oct. 19
Speaking of elimination, the Honda Center in Anaheim won't be the home of an NBA team for at least another season.
Are you ready for some basketball?
At least we have this: the Lakers' just-released 2011 exhibition schedule includes an Oct. 19 date at the Honda Center, continuing a streak where Newport Coast resident Kobe Bryant's team has played at least one exhibition game in Anaheim every year since 1999.

The Lakers' other exhibition games are: in Fresno Oct. 9 against the Golden State Warriors; in Ontario Oct. 12 against the Atlanta Hawks; at Staples Center Oct. 15 against the Hawks and Oct. 16 against Utah; in Las Vegas Oct. 21 against Anaheim--I mean--Sacramento; in San Diego Oct. 25 against the Clippers; and in Bakersfield Oct. 27 against the Clips.
Tickets for all but the Staples Center games go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday through Ticketmaster.com or by calling (800) 4-NBA-TIX.
