With the Lakers and Spurs finishing the season 2-2 in head-to-head matchups, once again I venture into enemy territory and speak with Lakers blogger and friend of Project Spurs, Rey Moralde, of The No Look Pass.
Here we talk about the Spurs recent win over the Lakers, Phil Jackson's antics, are the Lakers worried about the Spurs if they meet in the first round and much more including a discussion on Katharine McPhee versus Olivia Munn.
