What a great pickup Boozer is for us.

Boozer's thoughts on Randle's first preseason game: LINK

He will prove to be a necessary veteran influence for Randle. He seems like a big brother to Randle. He is very well-spoken, and can still contribute. He will probably be the most under-appreciated player this season, and will probably give us many headaches due to his increasingly old-man play, but like I say, he is going to be crucial to Randle's development. Go Boozer!

I have to admit he wasn't my first choice but the more I hear and see him, I will concede that he's winning me over. I also posted a link that you guys will enjoy; as always, when thread(s) are created, IMO, they are for debate, criticism, praise.

Thanks..:)

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."

During the summer, the Lakers...
