    yeah, they are bound to pick up little injuries after such a long layoff
    small sprains and bruises, nothing bad though... normal

    whats also normal is how they sucked that first game
    and maybe again today
    like the article says, they are relearning how to play ball
    im loving it
    how awesome was brown calling a time out a minute or two into the 3rd quarter to pull kobe to the side and get in his face for not putting his arm in the shooters face when someone made a 3 in his grill while he played defense with his kobe glare instead of his arms
    mike brown looked him in the eye and gave him a mike brown glare and then told him to put his motherfucking arm in the air and his hand in the other dudes face
    game recognize game
    kobe nodded his head and went back into the huddle like a good honest player should
    that was awesome
    mike brown is telling kobe that while he is a superstar he is still a player and he is still the coach
    and that dynamic is way more important than just between kobe and mike brown
    its that the rest of the team sees and understands what is going on between the two
    thats the dynamic that you best need in a modern professional with these mega stars that make many times more than the entire coaching and front office staffs combined
    its the best way to build great team chemistry
    which is what we have not had under phil jackson
    and his once seemingly earnest but eventually more condescending sounding bullshit all these years
    thats why we had a team with so many weapons yet we under performed so often when it counted the most

    we all know that the kobe/phil lovefest was a farce, the players knew it too
    they have never respected each other
    but they are both good corporate men, or they have had to become because of credibility tarnishing events in the past for both
    lots of money at stake, and lots of legacy as well
    so they buried the hatchet and did everything they could to humble themselves a bit and get
    shit done
    but there is only so much trust they have between each other, real trust... not after previous betrayals
    so they only work so effectively, but not as well as they should

    so there was no love lost between them when there wasnt any there to begin with

    the players see and feel this every day at practice and in games
    they all know it way more than we could
    and it affects their game, its got to
    thats a big time part of chemistry imo

    i think kobe will play harder this year that he has in a while
    he will play for his coach
    and the players will play for kobe and the coach because they wont feel like afterparts
    look how many players mike brown had out there dressed in the lakers purple and gold for that preseason game
    there was like 20 dudes out there
    never seen that shit before
    but he wants everyone to feel like a laker in a game with all the pictures and the house rocking at least one time
    even if they dont get on the floor much or at all, im sure its still something great
    and it might have been something the veterans came up with and suggested to the coach due to the camaraderie that arose during this compacted training camp schedule that had guys spending way more percentage of their days together than under normal situations
    a lot of shit had to get done in a very little amount of time
    and remember that the whole lockout thing really tested the solidarity of players league wide
    so i think there might be some level of a huge sigh of relief when players of different nba-economic backgrounds got back into a training camp type of situation where its just about getting back in shape and in getting the teams gameplan down
    im guessing there is a little chemistry bump from that because it had the possibility of being the direct opposite of a bump if that reported players rift was pushed further
    instead everyone kinda worked together and tried to make the best deal they could make for all and still get back on the court

    those extra camp invites probably get paid a nice chunk of cash for every extra day they are on the roster
    and one more day of playing with superstars
    and being a laker

    so thats pretty cool

    The lunotriquetral ligament stabilizes two of the smaller wrist bones on the outer part of the wrist.
