Raptors vs Lakers Gameday Thread: Goodbye Rudy, Hello Kobe

Suddenly, Kobe Bryant isn't the main story this evening...

TSN2 - 9:30 PM EST

This was supposed to be the "Kobe Bryant Returns" game.

But Masai Ujiri seems to have a trump card up his sleeve at all times.

A few hours ago it was reported that the Dinos were in talks with the Kings regarding moving Rudy Gay to Sacramento and sure enough, done deal. Gay heads West and the Raptors receive a number of players in return.

However, with Gay went Aaron Gray and Quincy Acy, who was supposed to start in place of the injured Tyler Hansbrough tonight, so the big question now is...ahhh...who the hell plays tonight for Toronto? And if the team has eight players, does this mean Kobe Bryant goes off for 123 points?

Ok, maybe not but this should still be an intriguing game and our moderator for the evening is Sarah Nols. Take it away Sarah!
