The Los Angeles Lakers finished up their final preseason games this week as they gear up for opening night on Tuesday against the Houston Rockets. Kobe Bryant said the team is ready to compete with “something on the line.”
Unfortunately, the news broke this week that the Lakers will be without the injured Steve Nash for the entire 2014-15 season. Luckily, the Lakers traded for Jeremy Lin this off-season, who will likely have quite a big role with the Lakers lack of depth at the point guard position.
In our Lakers Nation videos of the week, Bryant comments on the latest article in ESPN The Magazine claiming that he is the reason for the Lakers downfall. Julius Randle talks about the tough love he’s receiving from coaches and Bryant has a message of his own for Randle.
