And so it begins! Lakers start their pre-draft workouts tomorrow morning. Will be bringing you coverage from the Lakers facility.
Lakers weren't ready to play back in 1985 in Game 1 vs. Celtics. They lost 148-114. Won Finals in 6 games. This is rule more than exception.
K.C. Jones turned 83 today & Celt teammate Bill Sharman, who had KC alongside him w Stars & Lakers, would've turned 89 Sent from my iPhone
The Knicks, Bulls and Lakers should be the NBA's three tentpole franchises and instead are mired in their own unique brands of dysfunction.
Been so long since someone other than LeBron won the East that Lakers-Celtics were the Finals teams
1995-96 Bulls: 84-11; 1996-97 Bulls' 80-15; 1985-86 Celtics: 79-16; 1971-72 Lakers: 79-16; 1966-67 76ers: 79-16 ... and these 78-17 Warriors
Mitch Kupchak, Lakers GM, tells us that keeping the No. 2 pick is "probably the direction we'll go." @BR_Radio
FWIW - Lakers may work out some 50+ players the next few weeks in preparation for 27/34th picks (plus 2nd)
Hearing that both the Lakers and Clippers (separately) will be working out Bowling Green's Richaun Holmes in early Jun, 6'10" 21-year old PF
Came across preseason email that had McHale as most likely to get fired first, and Knicks & Lakers better title odds than Hawks. Um, no.
Pre-draft workouts for Lakers will be held on Tues & Thurs at team’s practice facility in El Segundo. Uncertain which players will attend.
Lakers will hold pre-draft workouts next Tuesday and Thursday at their practice facility. Currently unclear which prospects will be there
OK, since I'm using Twitter as my worksheet, let's clarify: If GSWs get to finals, they'd match 2004 Lakers for most time zones traveled...
The '88 champion Lakers traveled the most combined time zones in this period--8 total (including 3 TZs vs. Detroit in the finals).
For those asking, I would trade Noel + something for Towns. Lakers pick might be too much, but I'd seriously consider.
