Mike Brown says he's "excited" about where @DwightHoward is. "He's doing just about everything."


And True Laker fan, thats great news about CDR, I actually just asked Trudell about that before he posted that.

Typically, Howard or Gasol will stay on floor at C w/that 2nd unit. Duhon, Clark, CDR, Morris, Goudelock among those fighting to break in.



See that CJ

Alright everyone, Brown pretty much has put out who the 2nd unit will be and who will be going for minutes thus far in camp.

It's as follows

@LakersReporter

Here's the current depth chart for the 2nd unit, drawing from Brown's comments: Blake, Meeks, Ebanks, Jamison (moving over to the 4).

Typically, Howard or Gasol will stay on floor at C w/that 2nd unit. Duhon, Clark, CDR, Morris, Goudelock among those fighting to break in.


As long as CDR keeps turning heads in practice that's good news!! :)

(and for those just joining us, Dwight and Kobe pictures news(Kobe feeling better than he did in 2006) as well as Dwight's monster block are on page 15 :)

Kobe working on his crossover

Wasn't there a thread a while back asking where his crossover went?

Well there it is

im guessing ebanks will lose that spot once hill comes back. I have no worrys about this bench. Will do fine for what we need.

Our bench is deep enough we can do multiple things, that's the beauty of it.

I we pick CDR for the bench, I think we can stand one weak link in Blake.

Am I the only one that believes Steve Blake will be much improved just based on the talent surrounding him in the second unit?

He will and he wont have to be a sg which is what they were making him do allot last season. His role will be very limited this year

Kobe, with a grin, said his fierce dunk over/around Jamison was payback for Antawn taking a charge he didn't appreciate earlier. #LakersCamp

Nice, glad Meeks made the second unit.

Hopefully CDR can as well.

Trade for Austin Rivers, say, Hill & Johnson.

Nice interviews after practice :D Nice to see the training camp thread picking up steam again :glasses:

also notice Kobe's dunk came off a screen from Dwight, I think everyone was talking about the effectiveness of Nash in the PnR but what about Kobe's benefit with a true PnR center ALSO helping setup situations for him? Dwight being a PnR center does wonders for the options of both Kobe AND Nash depending on which has the ball and which is moving without it.
