NBA.com's Season Preivew: Los Angeles Lakers

The 2005-06 Lakers season featured a disproportionate amount of thrilling moments for a 45-37 team, thanks mainly to the spectacular play of Kobe Bryant, he of the 81- and 62-point games, league-leading 35.4 scoring average, and playoff buzzer-beaters.
If the Lakers are to surpass last year’s showing (which was an 11-win jump from ’04-05), Phil Jackson will have to coax improvement largely from within, as the look of the team’s rotation hasn’t changed much beyond Bryant’s decision to switch from his familiar No. 8 jersey to No. 24.

L.A.’s main offseason move was the signing of rangy free-agent forward Vladimir Radmanovic, who brings shooting and athleticism at 6-10. The team also acquired Maurice Evans, a hard-working reserve, in a draft-day trade with Detroit.

Lamar Odom had another strong all-around season (14.8 ppg, 9.2 rpg, 5.5 apg). With his Pippenesque versatility, Odom seems like a perfect fit for Jackson and his triangle offense – the Lakers need even more production and a.ssertiveness from the 6-10 forward, who will still be only 27 as of Nov. 6.

Up front, the wait for Kwame Brown to become a star seems eternal, though the big man played good defense and his numbers were up markedly down the stretch after Chris Mihm went down with an ankle injury. Mihm, a solid offensive option down low, has recovered slowly from summer ankle surgery and will miss the start of camp, but he should be back for the season opener. While Andrew Bynum memorably spun around Shaq and dunked in his rookie year, the 19-year-old seven-footer is still very much a work in progress.

The Lakers are still looking for answers beside Kobe in the backcourt. Undrafted Smush Parker was a revelation during the regular season, but he struggled mightily in the playoffs. Meanwhile, Sasha Vujacic’s .346 field-goal percentage belied his reputation as a sharpshooter (though he did knock down 9-15 threes in the playoffs). The team added depth at the position by drafting Jordan Farmar out of UCLA and signing journeyman Shammond Williams, who spent last season with FC Barcelona.

As for other familiar names, Luke Walton will be back with his triangle-friendly brand of team play, and forward Brian Cook will return to knock down shots off the bench. However, Devean George – the last link to the 2000-02 champions other than Bryant – left for Dallas in the offseason.

The one place where L.A. has no question marks is of course at shooting guard, where Bryant is, remarkably, about to enter his 11th season at age 28. Kobe says he’ll be ready for training camp after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. He told the AP that “it took me 45 minutes to warm up for practice and games. It was crazy. [The knee] was very sore, you just played around it. I couldn't attack, put pressure on the defense the way I wanted to." If Kobe wasn't healthy last year, when he posted the NBA’s highest scoring average in 19 years, what could he possibly have in store this year?

fu*ker, i think ur crazy, 2 years ago the lakers lost shaq & phil & had to make a million adjustments, we all know that was a rough year, last year nobody predicted us to get to the playoffs, everybody counted us out from day 1, yet we did make the postseason & we almost won that series if it wasnt for the team breakdown(TEAM NOT JUST KOBE) anyway, besides kwames bumass droppin every pass & brickin every play in the paint the only other REAL WEAKNESS was a consistant 3 shooter, which every team has had in the finals...they got that in Vlad(i hope) how do u figure a team that made the playoffs last year, & they upgraded this year will now have a below .500 record & miss the playoffs?

I love how the second some mediocre player like Vlad Rad signs with the Lakers he automatically goes from a dime a dozen european jump shooting bench rider who takes a game off everytime he breaks a fingernail and is more worried about his hair then he is developing any kind of inside game or rebounding skills or any other parts of his game for that matter, to the "savoir" of the Lakers. Yall are the most unrealistic fans of any team I have ever met. Putting all your eggs into the Vlad Rad basket Second of all, you guys already had several capable 3 point shooters. You give Brian Cook the same amount of minutes Vlad Rad gets and he will put up the EXACT same sh*t with better rebounding numbers.

There are several non-playoff teams that have improved drastically over the off season compared to the Lakers. If the Rockets stay healthy they will definitely do better then the Lakers, at least 10 games better. Hell, if they were healthy last year the Lakers woulda been bumped down another spot. Now with Battier and Wells it's lookin like they could even afford to have McGrady or Yao go out for month or so. Not to mention the Hornets who were damn near a playoff team last year and all the sh*t they did this off season. Peja, Chandler, Bobby Jackson.....but oh, Vladimir Radmanovic definitely beats all them out right? Not even fu*kin mentioning the fact that the T'Wolves got Mike James and you know KG aint gonna let them miss the playoffs again.

Lakers will be lucky as hell to get a 8 seed. I know you're a Laker fan and being unrealistic comes with the territory but time to face facts.

See that's the difference between most real fans of a ball team and Lakers fans, we generally appreciate and don't insult people who won us 3 championships in a row.
