Laying down a marker

In the first game of the season, the Los Angeles Lakers bench played fantastically, and led their team to an easy victory over a supposedly superior opponent. Stop me if you've heard this one before.

A season for The Byrds

In 2008, a mediocre Lakers team transformed into an absolute joy to watch en route to their surprise trip to the NBA Finals. This year's team may not have the same aspirations, but they can make...

Defense Preview: Was last year real?
