The Lakers' preseason got underway with a win and a loss. Newcomer Xavier Henry made a strong first impression in a 104-95 win over the Golden State Warriors on Saturday. The following night, the Lakers lost 97-88 to the Denver Nuggets, losing Wesley Johnson to a  strained left foot in the process. The Lakers had been relatively injury free through training camp, waiting on Kobe Bryant to return from Achilles surgery. Rookie Ryan Kelly still hasn't been fully cleared after foot surgery in April.

Forward Vladimir Radmanovic, who was once infamously called a "space cadet" by Lakers Coach Phil Jackson, has found a new team to orbit. In a move that trims $8.5 million off the Lakers' payroll, Radmanovic was sent Saturday to the Charlotte Bobcats for a pair of third-year pros -- forward Adam Morrison and guard Shannon Brown.

Jeanie Buss couldn't help but laugh. She's Phil Jackson's longtime companion but says she doesn't even know how much he wants to coach in the NBA again. "I can't answer that question," said Buss, a Lakers executive vice president. "Only he can. Nobody's called him. Unless somebody calls, we won't know how to answer that question. " That uncertainty also applies to the New York Knicks, who recently fired coach Mike D'Antoni . Jackson won 11 NBA championships as a coach — six with the Chicago Bulls and five with the Lakers.

Vladimir Radmanovic hasn't yet formally apologized to teammates, but they're aware of his admission of guilt. "They're calling him 'Slalom Vlade,' " Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said. The Lakers haven't decided whether they will fine him for lost time since his confession that a separated right shoulder was caused by a snowboarding spill, not a fall on a slippery sheet of street ice in Park City, Utah, his initial explanation.

His mind played tricks on him during his first four years in the NBA, and it left Shannon Brown's psyche a bit fragile when he contemplated his place in the league. The 6-foot-4 guard had been on four teams in four seasons, and he wondered why he couldn't stick with one team and why he was progressing so slowly, even with the Lakers. Those doubts that lurked for so long, however, are gone. They have been replaced by a sense of confidence, Brown said, because of all the hard work he put in last summer to mold himself into a better player.

Not that the last three seasons felt like a lifetime as the Lakers went from Kobe Bryant's days of rage in 2007 to back-to-back titles in 2009 and 2010, but I have stuff to catch up on.

Ahhh, Charlotte, where worlds collide and careers are changed forever. Well, at least for Adam Morrison and Vladimir Radmanovic. Last month, the Lakers acquired Morrison and Shannon Brown from the Charlotte Bobcats for Radmanovic, a move that saved the Lakers about $17 million in salary and luxury taxes. Radmanovic was vilified by fans while playing for the Lakers because of his inconsistency, but Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said Monday that Radmanovic was missed by the team.

The question caused Kobe Bryant to pause. He was asked about his feelings of having Shaquille O'Neal as a teammate again on the Western Conference All-Star team. The two last were teammates in 2004, when the Lakers lost in the NBA Finals to the Detroit Pistons. Soon after, O'Neal was shipped off to the Miami Heat in a trade before he was acquired by the Phoenix Suns last season. "Are you kidding me?" Bryant responded. "I haven't given it any thought. It's going to be a fun little vacation for me."

Following a visit with the Spurs on Saturday, Karl Malone's agent said Monday that if Malone decides to play again, it probably will be for San Antonio. Malone, 41, is expected to make an announcement about his future before the Feb. 18-20 All-Star break, perhaps even this week. "If he would choose to play, the likeliest candidate would be the Spurs, which is a team he almost played for a year and a half ago," Dwight Manley said.

Zach Randolph had 20 points and 10 rebounds and Eric Gordon scored 17 for the Clippers, who fizzled in the fourth quarter in the finale of a seven-game trip.
