Staples Center crowd rooting for Clippers AND Lakers
When Andrew Bynum jams, fans high-five each other and scream.
The crowd at Staples Center as the Clippers host the Lakers in their second exhibition game seems predominantly to be rooting for, well, Los Angeles.
Who knows if it's a split crowd or if the fans are cheering as if they were the Williams family while watching Serena and Venus play.
The Lakers have a 56-53 halftime lead -- and clearly L.A. finally has TWO teams worth watching.
