It wasn't a bad week for the Lake Show but it wasn't really one to brag about either. As expected they routed the Bobcats then went on to pick up a close W over the Nuggets but fell short against the Jazz. The most interesting point of the week came on Saturday when Mike Brown actually showed some emotion and got ejected for arguing a foul that he felt should've been called against the Jazz. Showing that he actually has some balls is cool and all but it's going to take more than that to make this team a contender again. *checks the calendar date of the NBA trade deadline* —Ralph Warner
