1382508903001-USP-NBA-Preseason-Utah-Jazz-at-Los-Angeles-LakersThe NBA season will tip off on Tuesday, and the Los Angeles Lakers are ready to embark on another 82-game journey. Although the team does not have high expectations, the players are determined to turn some heads and prove their doubters wrong.

Kobe Bryant has already been ruled out for the Lakers’ season opener, but the front office has done a great job loading up the backcourt. Even though the Lakers lost Dwight Howard over the summer, the team added a lot of young talent to the roster and their project is about to begin shortly.

In preparation of next Tuesday, here is Lakers Nation’s week in review.
