The 2009 NBA Champions paid a visit to the Honda Center in Anaheim for a pre-season exhibition game versus division rival Denver Nuggets on 10/22. With the season opener just next week, this was one of the final tune-up games before starting off another championship season. With the acquisition of Ron Artest, Kobe, Odom, Fisher, Gasol, Farmar and Company will prove to the NBA that the Los Angeles Lakers are the team to beat this year.
