If you missed our Google+ hangout today at 11:30 a.m. you can watch a replay of it above. In it, Times Lakers reporter Mike Bresnahan and Clippers reporter Brad Turner discussed the two teams and what to expect in the upcoming weeks. A host of topics were covered, including:
The Lakers are 0-4 in the exhibition season; should fans be concerned?
"They were 0-4 in the exhibition season during one of their title years, so, no," Bresnahan said.
How about Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant and how they have blended so far?
"Well, we haven't seen much of them," Bresnahan said. "They haven't played too much together yet. We haven't seen a pick-and-roll with them yet."
As for Dwight Howard, "there won't be much adjustment when he starts playing," he said. "You know what you're are going to get with him, so he should blend in pretty seamlessly. It might take about a month into the season though, for the Lakers to get comfortable with each other."
