A little sightseeing and promoting the NBA has been messing with practices and basketball related activity.

ESPN: The Los Angeles Lakers were selected by the NBA to travel to Europe this preseason to promote basketball on a global scale. So far, the team has gotten the promotion part of the trip down pat. They’re still waiting for the basketball part to kick in. “We’re doing pretty good in the NBA Cares clinics, we’re not doing so great with our own practices,” Lakers coach Phil Jackson said after the team’s practice at the Palau St. Jordi on Wednesday. “Five guys missed the team bus this morning. I’d blame Pau [Gasol] for that but we won’t hold it against him. He took them out last night and showed them some of the sights in Barcelona. So, we got a little bit behind the eight ball, I think, on this trip.”
