    James White? The “between-the-legs” from the foul-line James White. That guy has some sick hops.

  • Sako

  • Thomas

    The only name I recognized was Coby Karl…wasn’t he in the D-League half the season?? I don’t normally follow our summer team because none of the guys end up making the team.

    Where’s Sun Yue?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

  • daskeenyrrrj

    James White = the freak
    Lorenzo Mata-Real = UCLA
    Cedric Bozeman = McDonalds All-American but injured way too much in UCLA
    Davon Jefferson = USC who Lakers might have drafted this year

  • http://www.vladehasaposse.com Tim M.

    Davon Jefferson! I’ve heard bad things about him off the court, but I’m glad to see him on the roster.

    Glad to see Bozeman and Mata-Real too. Should be fun to watch.

  • lskerfan567

  • http://myspace.com/sonicussj Whatsa

    Even though these are just prospects, I can’t wait to watch the games. I hope Coby Karl gets tons of minutes =D.

  • Russ Ahi

    yeah, the summer league roster looks really big

    but i actually hope they sign lorenzo mata-real down the line…

    maybe not next season but you never know…

    for those of you who followed UCLA bball, he was a good player, getting rebounds, playing good defense, creating some energy and stuff…

    you never know, if ronny turiaf decides to become a warrior…the lakers would love to have a guy that could come in for a few minutes to create some excitement and grab some boards

    god, the thought of ronny leaving us is too hard to even talk about…

    EXACTLY HE COULD POSSIBLY BE THE NXT RONNY

    You’re totally right, he’s not a “energy guy” but he’s definitely a “fan favorite,” especially with the hispanic population of LA. He looks skinny and goofy, but he is actually a VERY intelligent player and NEVER whines about calls. He’s limited offensively but is a true center. Me and my fellow Bruins were always happy to see him come into the game. Also, during UCLA’s first (recent) final four run, Bozeman was a key veteran presence. He totally redeemed himself that season after being underwhelming and injured for a while…no room for him though… Anyway, I think there’s potentially room for a big. On an unrelated note, after the Forum Blue and Gold article I read, I’m starting to think maybe I wanna keep LO…

  • daniel almonte

    ay davon jefferson is the real deal…lakers need a explosive forward like him

  • http://deleted kb4sure

    anyone just get rid of any europian their soft but gasol is ok for a while he has length and talent.I rathered have coby over sasha he’s also a shooter and athletic and a fan favorite too and cheaper.just him first no rookies pls.were going for the ship not rebuilding.

  • Fantastic5LAL

    this si very exciting news thank you for this comment now everybody knows that ur sister is friends with him, have no idea why i chose to comment this

  • CajunAmos

    Dwayne Mitchell was quite a dunker when here with the Ragin Cajuns. I’ve added a link to a video reel. BTW he’s number 23 in the video.

  • BringDFishBack

    Very happy to see Bozeman and Mata on there. Bozeman got a chance in the NBA in Atlanta with a 10 day contract but didn’t see much time. Hopefully he can show them what he can do. While Mata is similar to Ronny, I just don’t think he is as skilled so he won’t ever become another Ronny. Don’t get me wrong I really like him as a player and is the ultimate hustle player, and would love for him to make the team. They must be pretty high on him too seen as he started against the Clipps.

    Even though Im a big UCLA fan and HATE USC, I like that Davon Jefferson is on there. He made a dumb decision by leaving USC after his freshmen year, but hey what do you expect from a USC kid? :) He was pretty good though, and maybe he’ll show some of that.

    The main issue I have is that they have 22 players on the roster. How are they gonna be able to give everyone enough time to prove what they can do?

  • varsityoptimism

    USC basketball coach Tim Floyd’s thoughts on Davon Jefferson: “YOU’RE WORTHLESSSSSSSS!”

  • BringDFishBack

    Here is a more updated roster with only 16 players instead of 22.

    How about stop thinking about keeping Odom and start saying “I truly want to keep Odom, and am sorry for ever wanting to trade him, we’ll have the best frontcourt in the NBA”, everyone should start saying that, “GET ARTEST ONLY IF WE DON’T HAVE TO TRADE ODOM, OTHER THAN THAT, DON’T TRADE ODOM AT ALL THIS OFFSEASON, ONLY MIHM AND RADMANOVIC!”

  • Freshh

    Alert*

    ODOM EXPERIMENT IS OVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

  • Caralisa

    I know #6 personally…his name is misspelled “Quinton”…it’s actually Quentin Thomas. He just graduated from the University of North Carolina…and all of his family and friends over here in The Bay are so proud of him.

    GO LAKERS! =)

  • HEELYEA!

    QQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQ!!! I hope Quentin, not Quinton, makes the squad! One of the most underrated players in college basketball and I hope his rap career turns out like his college career. One of the best!
