Every day, SBNation.com will celebrate a random photo series from the past or present, making your morning a little more colorful.
We missed photo of the day yesterday, but only because I was busy recapping Wizards Midnight Madness. And you know what that means? Even though it's still September, it's officially basketball season. And with the 2010 season beckoning, we should take a look at the two the teams that figure to capture our imagination all year long--Miami and L.A.
And even though they haven't played a game yet, we can still learn a lot from media day.
And while the Heat play with the three basketballs, 3,000 miles away, in Los Angeles...
The Lakers are just trying to carry all their trophies.
In Miami, they're fake-laughing their way through camp.
Meanwhile, in L.A., somebody just brought up the Miami Heat... Hysterical!
Chris Bosh didn't get the memo about looking tough.
Neither did Pau Gasol, but... That's a trophy in his hands.
Want to see how it's done? Look at the brooding intensity in LeBron's eyes.
Why can't Kobe look that tough and menacing?
Oh, the trophy again. Right. I keep forgetting about that.
