The Lakers put another jersey up into the rafters on Tuesday night. All ill feelings dissipated and Shaq was welcomed back to Staples Center for the pomp and circumstance. Oh, and the Lakers and Mavericks were set to renew the rivalry as they battle for the eighth seed in the Western Conference.

Take a look.
