Quote:
Walton feigned outrage when Jackson's plans were relayed to him.

"That's messed up," he said. "How do you lose your starting spot over the summer when you didn't even do anything (wrong)? He hasn't told me anything. I would like to start. I'm not going to pout if I don't. I like starting. I enjoy it, but if he feels we'll have a better flow, I guess we'll try it out." ...

What an idiot.

I guess Turiaf will start on preseason, and Phil will evaluate him based on that.

Walton and Turiaf both should be motivated and will probably be playing pretty intense this preseason.

Walton, who strained his right hamstring Friday and is listed as day-to-day, took it all in stride, even joking about the possible demotion.

"You lose your starting spot over the summer, right? You don't even do anything," he said, laughing.

"I would like to start," he added, "but I'm not going to pout if I don't. ... I like starting. I enjoy it. But if he feels we have a better flow coming in with the second unit, I guess we'll try it out and see how it works."

Kwame is hurt, Mihm still needs to get in game shape. Bynum has been been working hard all summer and has been outplaying both in practice so far. It's Bynum's job

still open at this point...it won't be mihm, he still has a way to go before he's in game shape... a radio report last week said he (mihm) looks good but he's huffing and puffing out there. which is understandable the guy was on crutches for like 8 months then in a walking boot for another 3 or four before he started to even rehab the ankle...

so that leaves kwame and bynum...if bynum shows improvement i'd imagine he gets the nod, and if phil is talking turiaf as a starter than bynum turiaf make more sense (to me) than kwame turiaf...

reports are also saying bynum has been a shot blocking fool this week...

Lakers automatcially improve defensvely.

The starting lineup improves defensively. What about your teams second unit?

If Walton isn't starting the Lakers aren't winning.

Don't be so silly. Turiaf is the Lakers back up PF. Who knows..maybe Turiaf will only start the first 6 games and back to the bench he goes.

dont be so silly? he only played 15 minutes per game last year when his toughness, defense, and rebounding could have easily warranted 20-25

and back up PF?? Cook and Radmanovic both played more minutes per game than he did

if they would finally realize Lamar's not a powerforward it would be a lot easier to put turiaf in there more
