Mychal Thompson tweets about Jared Dudley

While the game won’t have KD or AD in action, Thompson joked about Dudley filling in the void. He tweeted, “Tomorows Laker Nets game…No AD no KD but we WILL hav JD…Jared Dudley.”

Dudley, being the fun guy he is, took this joke with open arms. He replied to Thompson’s tweet and said, “My guy!”

The Lakers might just very well give Dudley a few minutes in the game, as they are a little shorthanded. Regardless of the hiccups, the game has all the ingredients to be a thrilling contest between the two league juggernauts.

Can the Lakers defend their championship?
