It seems like the season just ended yesterday, and yet this afternoon, the Lakers 22 man summer squad (the number will be considerably lower soon) will be scrimmaging against the Clippers squad. Here's a good preview of what the summer holds for the players, specifically Coby Karl and new draft pick Joe Crawford.

I know it's just the summer and 95% of these players have no chance of making the final roster, but you have to be interested and even inspired by these guys. This is their dream come to fruition and now they have a small number of games and practices to prove that they are good enough to play in the NBA. I can't imagine the pressure that must be on them, but here's hoping they are able to make it happen.
