Today, September 25, 2010, officially marks the start of the 2010-2011 season for the Los Angeles Lakers. The team will participate in Media Day, answering questions and posing for pictures. There will be no practice for the Lakers, but everyone will get to see the new, and old, players wear the uniforms for the first time since last season.

After the Media Day extravaganza ends, the Lakers will begin their actual training camp; the roster currently stands at 18 players. The Lakers added four new players, Trey Johnson, Anthony Roberson, Russell Hicks & Andrew Naymick. The chances of these players making the team are highly unlikely, but who knows, the Lakers may see something special in one of these men.
