1. Who impressed you most this Preseason? Bynum I had high hopes for him but also thought he was still young and would probably need a year or 2 more to get to were he is now.

2. Biggest Disappointment in Preseason? Vladrad I know he is a good shooter and once Kobe is drawing the doubles he should get some easier looks then he is getting now but still disappointing to watch as of right now.

3. Other than Kobe and Odom, Who is the Lakers' Xfactor? Kwame I think if he can keep that determination that he has been showing since the playoffs last year and if he stays serious about wanting to hit the 15/10 mark like the card he is carrying states he can be that missing link.

4. Best shooter not named Kobe? Vladrad once he heals and once Kobe is back on the floor I think he will turn out to be our best shooter.

5. Best Perimeter defender not named Kobe? This is a toss up I have really been impressed with Evans, Farmar, Parker and even Sasha the 1st 3 seem to be able to play the passing lanes and get steals Sasha just irritates his opponents I thinks we defiantly need to learn when to and when not to go for the steal.

6. Offensive philosophy: More Run N Gun or Halfcourt sets? Depends on who were playing we should always want to control the tempo example opening night we should run a half court offence (why?) because the Suns run and gun and are dam good at it so we should slow them down to a half court game and pound the ball inside and expose there weak front line Bynum played very well against them and Odom has proved he can out play the Matrix when he feels so inclined.

7. Besides Kobe. Who would you give the last shot to when the game is on the line? Most likely Odom but depends on who has the hot hand it could be different if say Vlad has gone 7-8 from 3 pt land I might want him to have it.

8. Will Odom make his first All Star appearance? I would love to see him go to the AS game if he uses his son’s tragedy to motivate him he could but in 7 years he hasn’t so I am not so optimistic on this one.

9. Do you think Bynum will ultimately grab the starting C spot despite Kwame and Mihm's return? I think it all depends on what Kwame and Mihm we see come back if Bynum keeps up his play that he has shown against the Suns and Nuggets they might be coming off the bench till they get back in game form since Bynum is in great shape right now and playing great ball.

10. How many wins do we get this yr? 49-52 I think we can pull this off with our improved chemistry and added depth

1] Andrew Bynum. Thought he was a bust or it would take him 3-4 more years due to big men developing later then sooner, but have to love what he showed during the preseason.

2] Vladimir Radmanovic.

3] If Farmar starts, then him, but if not then Andrew Bynum.

4] Sasha Vujacic.

5] Jordan Farmar

6] Half-Court, feed the ball to Bynum!

7] Jordan Farmar. He messed up in the pre-season against my Clippers ;), but the man is clutch. I'd know from my UCLA days, just watch the game against Gonzaga when Morrison broke into tears.

8] No, West has too many F's who are better and will be ahead of him. I mean, if Melo struggles to get in, how will Odom?

9] Yes, Bynum should keep the starting job, although not play starters minutes.

10] 45-48. Lakers did improve, but so did the rest of the West. In fact, I'm putting down a straight answer of 46.

[ANSWERS ] & [ BRIEF COMMENTS]


(1.Baby Boy Bynum) --- As expected given the opportunity he's lookin' solid.

(2. Radman )--- Unfortunately due to his injury he hasn't shot well.

(3. Kwame) --- Being the Lakers center comes w/responsibilties of being great.

(4. Cookie )--- Though rad will most likely succeed Cook given his reputation I can't judge on something I haven't seen yet.

(5. Vujacic) --- Though Sasha's an aggressive all around defender he does have a tendency to committ silly fouls. Mo will most likely succeed Sasha by ASB.

(6. Halfcourt sets) --- Implementing the triangle is most suitable to our Phil_osophy based on our nucleus in players.

(7. Odom ) --- Aside from being long and athletic Odom who controls the boards can also push it up court thus creating his own shot all in the same sequence.

(8. You bet cha') --- I been preping Odom up all summer long w/the possibilities of him finally becoming an A.S. in his 8th year. He also has the intermotives within himself to drive him to that status.

(9. Not Quite )--- Let's not get ahead of ourselves Bynum will make the most of it but interms of competing w/veterans who have been legitimate centers in the NBA for 5 and 6 years respectively. Bynum as a 19 year old w/out ever playing collegiant ball has no advantage yet over Kwame & Mihm atleast not in his 2nd year.

(10. 45-48 wins)-- Due to our key players still recovering from injuries I had to scale back on my initial thoughts of winning 49-52 games, besides living here in Vegas have tempted me to place a wager on my Lakers to win 43+ games so aslong as they cover the 43+wins I'll be a happy camper towards the end of April.
