FINALLY! Goodness gracious it's been too long! Even since summer league has felt like an eternity. Sick of seeing so many exaggeratingly short clips and videos too. Now we get to see a legit 48 minutes.

yo.

I'm expecting a very sloppy game with some solid flashes.  But the Lakers haven't been running any real half court sets in training camp thus far.  According Luke it's at about 0%.  So I expect us to look sloppy but we'll see if we still get the win.

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

Will be interesting how many minutes the main young core will get. Are they going to give them most of the game like a usual regular season game or will the camp fodder get the 4th.

I know to make a real difference in W/L stats they must play solid D it’s been said but a glaring weakness that loses games that could’ve been won!

Lonzo is the type of player that will show you how meaningless box scores are.

Any word if players and coaches will lock arms or anything during Anthem?


Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

The NBA already sent out a memo to each team, so we shall see what they do

Lakers players and coaches will lock arms during the national anthem tonight like they did most of last season.
