    After watching the finals defense was our enemy. Have you committed to improving your defensive game?

  • daboss1849

    After watching you play last year how do you feel about suicide?

  • DCLAKER

    That’s a hardcore question,right there…real NWA-ish.

    My question is ‘Do you plan to redeem yourself on Christmas Day vs. Boston”?

  • Violet

    How different is it playing against the Celtics now than it was before the finals last season. Do you feel like every game against them is a “must win”?

  • BringDFishBack

    Hey Valdi,
    So far in the preseason you defense looks much improved and looks like you really worked on it over the summer. Was that your main focus over summer?

  • bhpreppy

    How about letting us buy out of your miserable contract so we can use the money to resign Odom and Ariza???

  • gugy

    My question is,

    Vlad can you go away for good and take Luke and Minh with you?

  • mr.laker19

    Do you think you can carry the surprisingly good play on both ends of the floor in the pre season into the regular season?

  • aggressive expansion

    Has anyone told you, you look like Niko Bellic from GTA IV?

    Hey Vlady! my question is When are u planning on leaving this team so we can use ur money to actually sign some players that are worth paying for?

  • dub824

    ask him what his favorite team and player was when he was growing up and who does he think is the best player today

  • ryguy2303

    How do you manage to stay on a team when you do absolutely nothing to contribute?

  • Banzai

    My question is….will you try to improve on your 3 point shooting..and not go from a 18 pt game to a 0 point game?

  • http://myspace.com/sonicussj Whatsa

    I’ve noticed that you improved on your shooting in the preseason! Have you been practicing on that and do you think you will be consistent with your jump shooting percentages?

  • BALLIN’08

    It goes without saying that your defense sucks ball$…and your shot is inconsistent at best….So what’s the difference between u & Dick Cheney??

  • Sako

    Hi Vlade. Will we see anything new this season from you and the rest of the team?

  • Thuggishsteer

    why bother my question wont be asked anyway………….

  • Thuggishsteer

    here goes: So ive heard you’ve been doing the borat voice for some time, who is a better shooter you or sasha, are you better than kobe now?

  • jplakers120

    how was the offseason for you? did u visit serbia?

  • lakrfan4life

    why are all of u guys haters? vladi is great! i’ve met him like 5 times, hes never treated me bad, and he can shoot pretty much lights out

    my question: hey vladi, why do so many hate you? jk

    are you hosting another camp next year? i really wanna attend again!

    make sure to remind him that he personally promised my brother (at his camp) that hes gonna shoot above 60% from 3s this season

  • yellowpurplefever

    how did you get the nickname “SPACE CADET”?

  • Ira

    What aspect of your game do you feel needs to be improved and stay that way through the season?

    Also, are there any off the court funny stories from this training camp he can share with us?

  • e

    have you ever heard of defense?

  • kwame brown

    do you miss playing with me?

  • mr.laker19

    Who is the top 5 pure shooters in the league, and where would you put yourself right now in that category?

  • http://TheVerveNerve.com Billy Kupchak

    Vlad, have you had a chance to drink a can of the insanely healthy energy drink, Verve? :D If so, what do you like about it? ;) If not, why not? :cool:

  • RAZOR RAMON

    Boxers or panties?

  • Zen Master

    Relax guys! Don’t say that his shooting is inconsistent. For the last 2 years, I thought Vujacic had inconsistent shooting. In fact, I thought he sucked a shooting until I look at his periodic percentages. THE TRICK OF THIS “INCONSISTENT SHOOTING” CONFUSIONS IS, if you watch a your favorite team too much, you have a tendency to think that every good shooter on your team has inconsistent shots. Why? Because people can’t make every shot! If you all have any common sense at all, you will accept that a player misses more long range shots than he makes. COMMON SENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Damn it! What, like you expect someone to average 60 percent 3pt? I tell you what, 35% is already considered good! But I still hear sports fans complaining about how the sharp shooters that they see the most suck! We’re talking about complaints toward players that shoot better than 35 percent 3pt! Shut up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can’t make every 3pt! Not even half!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    About defense, you all better stop complaining about how a dude plays defense as long as he is at least alright + trying at it. CONSIDER THAT it is easier to blow by somebody than it is to stay in front of them!!!!!!!!!! If you don’t believe the last sentence, then answer this question – which is harder, running forward OR side/rear pedaling? The answer is ……… not so hard… running forward!!! So shut your mouth. Almost forgot this – a defender always has to guess what the offensive player is going to do. So there are your 2 reasons not to complain about defense because even Kobe and other elite “lock-down” defenders get blown by all the time and crossed all the time.

    Sometimes people are wrong because they use the wrong logic, but some other times like this one they are wrong because they don’t use simple common sense. 3 common senses of the day:

    [[you can’t make every 3pt from 25ft, not even half]] &&&&&

    [[it’s easier to run forward than backward]] &&&&&

    [[it’s easier to play offense than be a defender who is always guessing]]

  • KONG!

    This guy doesn’t have the heart to play in the NBA. Every time he posts up, he goes in there with the attitude that he’s going to get blocked and therefor doesn’t try as much.

    This guy is a disgrace to the NBA, he should not be a Laker. We don’t need a “Vince-Carter-ish” player on this team. Ship him out with Luke.

  • mrbday

    Since a lot of you obviously can’t ask any mature questions — we’re probably going to have to second guess giving you the opportunity to ask them for future Q&A’s.
