Default Mitch Kupchak scouting all over the world

A SoCal summer with no Lakers

The Press-Enterprise

The radiant smile of Magic Johnson first cast its spell over Lakers fans when he played in Southern California's Summer Pro League in 1979.

The exuberant talent of Kobe Bryant first descended upon Lakers fans when he played in the Long Beach Summer Pro League in 1996.

For 37 years, fans saw the beginnings of greatness when Johnson, Bryant and so many other Lakers took their first professional steps during summers in the Southland.

That won't be the case this summer. Like so many of their NBA brothers, the Lakers have moved on to play in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas this July.

Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said the reason for the change is simple.

"There was nobody to play against," Kupchak said by phone from Barcelona, Spain, where he is scouting. "I can't sugarcoat it. As you know, you have to go where the competition is."

Kupchak only have 3 more stops, from Spain kupchak will continue his scouting to Philippines, Australia and and his last stop is Area 51 where a player named ET is being heralded as the next Magic Johnson.

By the way, I am very sad that the Long Beach Summer Pro league is no longer for the Lakers. It was a tradition that has ended.

Now, I may have to do a roadie to vegas for this one in July!
