Today, September 27, 2022 is the opening of training camp for the Los Angeles Lakers. This traditionally is the official beginning of the NBA Season and that would be for 2022-2023. This year, we have a new coach and some new players and we are starting camp with Westbrook on the roster. We shall see what transpires in the next three weeks as camp opens and closes and then the 8 Preseason games are played to the opening of the Regular Season in Mid-October.

Media Day is done and Training camp continues to Monday October 3rd for the first Home Preseason game against the Queens. One dude getting a lot of rave reviews is the ex-Celtic signing Matt Ryan. We shall see if he sticks or gets cut.

If there is any truth to this, these types of "Who-dunnit" stories are continuing to emerge. James is remarkably quiet though.

Yea shopson, lots of kudos going Nunn's way and many include his fresh energy as well as his long-distance shooting is vastly improved.

Maybe Ham is going to get the so-called "Big Three" to play the way everyone envisioned two years ago. Maybe.

Well talk is just flat-out useless. All the excitement about the possibilities and what peeps are hoping to happen on paper under Ham's direction are always tempered by reality as this vid demonstrates. Not too many made baskets in this training camp practice vid. This is pretty anemic at best. Nunn, Beverley, James and others missing shots like no tomorrow.

Granted, everyone knows it is just practice but I am a very firm believer that what a given player does in practice can and does carry-over to games. Nobody has a switch that they can just flip and become a superstar, sharp-shooter.

The Lakers take the First Quarter 27-21. They are looking mildly decent.

Christie is in the game in the Second Quarter. Pretty balanced scoring through everybody who has played. Even Westbrook has 5 points to match AD's 5 points.

Jones, Bryant, T-A, P. Bev, and Reaves are on the floor. Interesting line-up by Ham.

P.Bev misses two shots after he got the O-rebound he missed the second shot. Geez, this dude can't buy a basket.
