I only heard the first few minutes of the interview and if you don't mind a very generalized recap...

He congratulated Dan Patrick on his new show.

Patrick asked how you prepare for media day.
Phil said there are many events, photos, promotional things to do, then finally the media gets to ask their questions.

DP asked Phil to name 3 questions he knew he would get.
Phil said they would probably be: Are you surprised that Kobe is here? What do you think your chances are this year? How is your health?

Phil said he's still about three weeks away from throwing away his cane. His hip is still a little troublesome so he can't be as ambulatory as he wants to be moving up and down the court. He has been increasing the intensity of his therapy.

Phil talked about how he understood Kobe's frustration. He wasn't going to amplify or mollify the comments. Kobe is a talented player who wants a chance to compete on the stage of the finals.

DP asked how close the Lakers were to getting KG or O'Neal. With KG he said McHale was reluctant to trade him to another team in the Western Conference where it could come back to bite him, so he can understand that. Also gave some jibes about he wasn't as reluctant to trade him to Celtic Green. And they did get some good young players back. With Jermaine O'Neal it wasn't as close or that it hasn't come together yet. (Yes he did say "yet" for those who like to analyze every word.)

DP asked about Shawn Marion and Phil said he would give a standard answer that he and management are in agreement that if a move can be made to clearly improve the team, they want to make it.

DP asked if Phil was coming out of retirement, would he want to coach this team? Phil said, yes, that it is a talented team.

DP questioned him and started to pursue a line of questioning like how would you do against the teams in the West -- San Antonio for instance. Phil was quick with his response, "Well we were 2-0 against San Antonio before we went down with all the injuries." Cited being 29-13 at the time Lamar went down, Kwame went out, Luke went out -- the whole frontcourt basically, plus being without Mihm. So instead of improving from that place going toward the playoffs, the team went really downhill.

He also talked about how the injury issue is a black spot -- are the Lakers snakebit? That's the feeling that has to be overcome. Most of his teams in his 18-year coaching career have not had that many injuries and it got ridiculous last year.

DP pressed him to say "Do you really think you are as good as San Antonio." Phil said he's confident they can compete -- the difference is that San Antonio improved and stepped it up in the playoffs, and the Lakers went in the opposite direction, so that's the challenge.

That is all I heard -- and my apologies for it not being verbatim. Any nuances or translation problems are mine!

Thanks for the recap.

Phil sounds very confident. He is right about the injuries; those absolutely killed us last year.

- Odom for 26 games
- Luke for 22 games
- Kwame for 41 games
- Vlad for 27 games
- Mihm for the season

Funny thing is, aside from Kobe and Turiaf, those are our best players. We couldn't have Cook or Smush be the one that takes one for the team. All of them missed, at a minimum, a quarter of the season. Our starting center missed half the season, with his back-up missing the entire thing. Odom and Vlad missed a third of our games, Luke a fourth.

Having Kwame's great defense for more games would help, as would Mihm being another quality big off the bench. Luke is the glue for the offense, so losing him hurt. I'm not even going to get into Vlad. And Odom, well, we all know when we don't have him we are SCREWED.

Thanks for the recap.

I'm one of the few that thinks the team is pretty good. Not championship good, but better than 1st round good.

The injuries jacked us up last year. Not so much for the actual games missed, which hurt, but more because it's so hard to establish chemistry. And considering the Triangle relies very very heavily on chemistry and practice,... well, there wasn't much hope.

Barring major injuries, I see big improvements this year.

Having Fisher is going to help. I mean, we still don't have any defense at the 1, but now we have another player that knows the offense like the back of his hand. All those times Smush looked lost on offense is going to change. That has to account for something.

Any diehard laker fan should be on pins and needles going into this season. With EVERYTHING that went on with Kobe this summer, including bashing Bynum and his other teammates, things could go very wrong for the Lakers.

If this team has any bad set backs or injuries then you can kiss the playoffs goodbye. Kobe will be irrate at that point and may demand a trade again. Which would be very bad for the Lakers.

Bynum HAS to have a good year. This organization and Kobe have put a lot of pressure on his shoulders. If Bynum sucks this year then not only does his trade value drop greatly, but Kobe will want to leave as well.

At thihs point I think it would have been best to see Bynum go back home to Jersey while we got J-Kidd. But im not trippin. Im just hoping that Bynum really comes out of his shell ans suprises all of us this year.

^ Assuming we could have kept Odom, getting Kidd would have been great.

A Kidd/Kobe/Walton/Odom/MLE (Magloire?) team with Turiaf, Mihm, Evans, Farmar off the bench would have been very, very good.

I believe he means keeping odom to get marion.

To do a Odom and Marion swap, it does not clearly improve the team.

hes not gonna give a straight answer. why would he? if he tells everyone he wants the trade and it dusnt happen, odoms gonna be pissed off. if he dusnt want the trade, he can cause marion to bak up on his request or if it happens, marion will be pissed about wat phil said. keep it on the low til its pretty much dun.

It will be nice to see the ball go up again, but I do grow weary of the injury excuse. Did it hurt us? Yeah, but is there someone on this board that actually thinks we were 2nd or 3rd round material without the injuries?

Phoenix, Dallas, Spurs and Jazz were all better than us. Rockets came on at the end.

2nd round? Absolutely. If we had the right match-up, we could make the second round.

Can't understand why they keep pointing to the injuries when every one of those players, save for Vlad, HAS HISTORICALLY BEEN AN INJURY WAITING TO HAPPEN. Besides, you're player Odom -- AN INJURY WAITING TO HAPPEN -- at the PF spot in the Western Conference. Guess what... good chance he'll get injured. Likewise, Mihm's injury was a known quantity BEFORE THE SEASON STARTED.

I'm tired of the injury talk. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN EXPECTED. It's like they're saying: "we were HOPING that we'd get LUCKY and those prone to injury would not be injured... didn't pan out... we're HOPEFUL that we get LUCKY this season and those prone to injury don't get injured as much." In other words, they're rolling the dice hoping for sevens, and, when they don't get it, they'll use not rolling a seven as their excuse.

It's like telling your mortgage rep "dude, I totally planned on paying the mortgage this month... in fact, I went down to the casino to play some poker fully expecting to earn enough to pay the mortgage bill... unfortunately, the bad luck bug hit and I lost instead... if the bad luck bug doesn't hit next month, I'm totally paying it."

yup. and injury is part of the game. we have shown that we are a mediocre team when we are injured. the odds are against us when we have to rely on NOT getting injured to make any progress.

thats what i been telling almost everyone who talked to me about how bad the lakers were last year. i kept saying that if they had the chance and stayed healthy they could have made the run. now with fish running the point and everyone healthy and made a mid season trade second round here we come. :jam2: :jam2:
