The Lakers didn’t feel the joy of winning very often last season during a 26-56 campaign, but they still love it and they still want their players to start to feel it, even if it is only the Las Vegas Summer League. The Lakers summer league team has won five games in a row and will play Monday for the championship. “Our stated goal going into this was winning a summer league championship because a winning mentality is developed in these small moments,” Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka said. “Every detail, every day, Magic and I are saying, ‘How are we pursuing excellence?’ Even a victory to win the summer league is a step in that direction. We wouldn’t take it for granted.”
