I'm actually happy for Kurt Rambis. I realize that this is a preseason game with Minny going all out against LA's 3rd stringers and their camp invites but it looks like the Minnesota players have bought in and they seemed to gel quite well out there. Maybe this year it won't be "Kobe and the Lakers vs. Kurt Rambis and the Timberwolves" whenever these two meet at Staples. I know the guy was a long time Laker but it's kind of embarrassing to have your coach be the face of your franchise whenever they meet in LA. lol.
As far as LA is concerned, I'll have to watch the game in full tonight but it looks like three point shooting and inconsistency at the FT line continue to be a couple of things the Lakers should be working on. 28.6 3P% on 4-14 attempts and 54.5% FT% on 18-33 attempts. Nasty.
