Lakers Roundtable: L.A. Times reporters discuss Lakers' struggles, team meeting and Western Conference race

March 11, 2010 |  8:35 am

We bring you the second edition of Lakers roundtable, where The Times' Mike Bresnahan, Broderick Turner and I discuss the Lakers' latest struggles, the team meeting, the tightening Western Conference race and why my knockout championship at a basketball camp in sixth grade parallels the Lakers' current situation. Brez, BT and I bring you this coverage, despite numerous obstacles, including custodians closing up the Staples Center media work room, obstructive objects thrown by colleagues and eating nearly expired potato chips with dip.
