Most of you have probably seen this, but I'm posting this for the few that have missed it. If you click on Events from the toolbar at the top of the page it directs you to a site calendar with all this season's Lakers games.

Awesome sauce. :rock:

Lakers Coach Byron Scott wants Julius Randle to improve conditioning

Julius Randle had a solid rookie debut Monday night, scoring 10 points with eight rebounds in the Lakers' 98-95 victory over the Denver Nuggets in their preseason opener.

While Coach Byron Scott was happy with some of what Randle accomplished on the floor, he would like to see more from the rookie.

"He's got to do a better job of setting screens," said Scott. "He's got to do a better job of getting up and down the floor. He does that in spurts.

"The biggest thing with him right now is that he has to get in better shape. He's in good shape but he has to get in great shape."

Scott has held a vigorous training camp, pushing his players to try to make the Lakers one of the best-conditioned teams in league.

"When you're not in great shape and you get tired, you lose focus, it's that simple," said Scott. "It's just a matter of getting him in great shape."

I'm dropping this into Lakers Discussion because that's the most important thing here. Which from my limited full exploration of capabilities already am impressed with the site for being a great place to enjoy it! Wow Barns..... nice job! Thank you. Am sure I will come back with more but for now ...... (where are 3 of my yellow guys saying, "Yeah! with V signs in the air" )

1. Speed .......What an upgrade! Hopefully when Lakersball has thousands more members the speed will not be affected. But wow it's instantaneous.

2. The Looks ...... Without even paying attention and trying to analyze it yet, first doing some posting, I all of a sudden realize it looks GOOD. Comfortable already. Nice aesthetics!

3. The Alert drop down in upper right is nice. I did a double take at first with one of the alerts saying (a member's name) had replied to one of the threads. And then Siri like said, "there may be more posts after this" I like it.

4. Speed

5. Speed .........

This guy impressed me in his first game. He did so much of what we were missing last year and attacks the basket with a force. Reminds a bit of Lamar when he brings up the ball (of course not quite at a LO standard yet) but I think we really found something in the draft.

I already like our rookies a lot.
