Seeing a Thunder-Lakers game always a bittersweet one for me

OKLAHOMA CITY — It's always tough watching the Los Angeles Lakers play the Oklahoma City Thunder.
As I've said previously, I grew up a huge Lakers fan ever since the rookie season of Magic Johnson. I stayed with that team all through their glory "Showtime" years, and then even in the ’90s when they struggled before picking up Kobe Bryant and then Shaquille O'Neal for their championship run in the early 2000s.
Then Oklahoma City finally got an National Basketball Association team a few years ago when the Seattle SuperSonics moved to town.
Oklahoma City travels to New York to take on the Knicks tonight at Madison Square Garden, then continue the road trip Friday night against the Charlotte Bobcats.
