Rocky Start for the Lakeshow/ Lakers Optimist on Facebook!


Hi folks! The season is off and running! Lakers are off to a rough start, but finally notched thier first victory albeit against another struggling team. Byron is working on the right mix off the bench and this team is learning each other. Kobe is learning his aging body in quite possibly his last season. Russell is learning how to be a star. Randle believes he is a star and Clarkson is picking up right where he left off. Hibbert is anchoring the defense as expected.

The Lakers continue to lack the one thing that wins games– defense. They seemed to get it against the Nets. Yes the Nets are awful right now but history will show you that a win against an awful team can sometimes be the right medicine. It keyed Cleveland’s run last year after a lackluster stretch of losses. 

Byron finally decided to give Kelly and Bass a seat in favor of Metta and Nance Jr. There is no substitute for defensive energy and major hops! This was key is thier first win. Lakers, if defense is thier calling card this year must hold thier opponents under 100 points.

There I go rambling! All I wanted to do was give you my Facebook page. I can’t always write up something but I’m always posting here.

Lakers next face the New York Knicks on Sunday. Another winnable opponent. Let’s see if the growth continues.
