The Lakers opened the preseason with an ass-whippin by the Nets, 97-123. Couple of the youngsters were show-cased such THT and Munn. AD looked really good. Everyone else pretty much didn't play. Here's a synopsis from LakeShowLife.

These three guys are going to be keepers for awhile. They are pretty good and are a good core to build for the future when some of the aging players retire.

I'm still a bit surprised that they converted Reaves' contract already. I thought he could really benefit getting minutes in the G League, especially with the competition for minutes already expected at guard for the Lakers.

Lakers also signed Cam Oliver to an exhibit 10 contract (like they did with UDFA Chaundee Brown) a few weeks ago. If nothing else, he's a camp body at the forward position that could end up with South Bay.

Apparently Reaves is that good to merit a full-blown usual NBA contract. Reports are indicating he is playing alot like Alex Caruso and may be just as good or better.

Out of all the older guys we signed, Ariza came to the Lakers with the most injury baggage and it has now been confirmed. Will see him later in the year when he is healed and I suspect he'll be the first older player to retire as a Laker with the present older roster.

There is a lot of individual players on this new roster that are having good-to-great games in the preseason. Dwight Howard shined against the Warriors with 23 points and a host of associated stats. LeBron and Westbrook demonstrated a lot of rust and discoordination which I suppose is to be expected in the Lakers third Preseason loss. THT had another good game. Defense is still lacking as well. More work to do.

Losing THT for 6-8 weeks isn't too bad of hit especially when Chaunee Brown and some others are playing well. However, Malik Munn is down and the injuries are accumulating way too early in the season. This can be disconcerting at this point.

Even with the Big Three playing, the Lakers lose again. 0-5 in the Preseason. The killer this time was/is turnovers and defense was suspect as well. In the meantime, James Ennis is lobbying hard in public to be signed by the Lakers. The Lakers only have two functional forwards as LeBron is often playing as a Guard of which the Lakers have tons. Should be interesting to see if Ennis, actually gets his wish because of his defensive prowess.

The Lakers lose again. 0-6 for the Preseason. I suppose the Lakers are going to somehow turn a switch and get ready for the Warriors on the 19th of this month? Defense is still pretty suspect and shooting is still not up to where it should be. We shall see.
