LA Lakers Thread 2006-2007

Well here we go folks. I'll be there Oct 31st, can't wait.

Kobe now wears #24
Odom has a lot to prove
Radmonovic could be huge part of the triangle.
Kwame bulked up, but can he handle the ball and hit free throws?
Mimh looks like he is returning to full strength
Will Farmar have a big impact?
Does Smush come back or hide out on the court?
Can Phil coach with a healing hip?

Most importantly, do we get past the first round this year?

Lifelong Laker fan here! I have good feelings about this season. Maybe Kobe's new number and Phil's new hip are signs of a new era in Laker basketball. Or is that a little too optimistic?

In any case, I can't wait for the season to start! And it's good to find some fellow fans here (even if this thread does attract the occasional hater).

What's a Laker thread without us haters. I just got through with my Jeter hating and now it's time for some good ole Kobe bashing. After last year's playoffs, I'll also show up in the Heat threads for some D-Wade hating. Let the games begin!

Don't get me wrong, I'm no hater-hater. I, myself, am a hater of many things: the Raiders, the Yankees (although I'm lukewarm towards all of baseball), John Starks, and hockey in general. Plus, you can't have a team that's been dominant for a lot of its history without getting its fair share of anti-fans.

As for Kobe, I can understand the hate there... amazing individual skills without the team mentality (yet ), a standoff-ish personality and, of course, the rape case. But, I see him as that one cousin you might have in your family. You know the one I'm talking about. He's always getting himself in trouble... has a chip on his shoulder... maybe a couple of kids from different mothers. But, as long as he's part of your family, you'll always care for him and visit him in prison.

So any of you guys watching the preseason games? Thoughts? Impressions?

I'm really liking Farmar after watching him play in the preseason. Luke's looked pretty solid as well.

Farmar looks good, I like Shammond Williams alot from the game a few days ago.

Will be interesting when we have a healthy squad of Kobe, Mihm, Kwame, Sasha etc.

I like our bench this year A LOT more.

Kwame Brown out at least 3 weeks

October 19, 2006

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -- Los Angeles Lakers center Kwame Brown will be sidelined approximately three to four weeks because of a bruised rotator cuff and bursitis in his right shoulder, meaning he'll miss the start of the season.

Lakers spokesman John Black said Thursday that Dr. Neal Elattrache, a shoulder specialist, examined Brown a day earlier and made the diagnosis.

The 24-year-old Brown hasn't played since colliding with Andrew Bynum during practice Saturday. His shoulder bothered him last season as well.

Brown, the first overall pick in the 2001 NBA draft by the Washington Wizards, averaged 7.4 points and 6.6 rebounds in 72 games for the Lakers last season -- his first with the team. He became the team's starting center after Chris Mihm injured his right ankle March 12.

Mihm played only one game after that, and is still recovering from offseason surgery on his ankle.

"Chris won't be ready by opening night," Black said. "We really don't want to put a timetable on it other than to say it's going to be more than two weeks."

The Lakers open the season Oct. 31 against the Phoenix Suns.

With Brown and Mihm both sidelined, possible options at center to start the season are the 18-year-old Bynum, Ronny Turiaf and Brian Cook. Bynum was the team's first-round draft pick last year and Turiaf was the second-round selection. Neither played much as rookies, and Cook is a natural forward.

"It's a coaching decision," Black said.

Defending NBA scoring champion Kobe Bryant, recovering from offseason knee surgery, hopes to be ready for the season opener, but hasn't played in the exhibition season.

"Our hope is he'll get to play in at least one preseason game," Black said, adding that Bryant was "probably doubtful" for Sunday night's game against the Suns in San Diego. The Lakers have one exhibition game after that -- against Denver next Thursday night in Anaheim.

The Lakers have several other injured players, including Vladimir Radmanovic (sprained ligament in his right hand); Shammond Williams (abdominal strain); Aaron McKie (disc irritation and inflammation), and Von Wafer (bruised left heel).

Lakers coach Phil Jackson, who had hip replacement surgery Oct. 3, has been working part-time and is expected to be on the bench for the season opener.

Kobe's got a pretty nice page. It's actually really clean and well done.
