While Mark Medina is enjoying vacation, here's a question for everyone
With Mark Medina on a well-deserved vacation, the rest of the staff here at The Times will be chipping in on the Lakers blog. All we ask is you be patient with us, as no one can match the posting machine that Mark Medina is, but we hope to give you some things to think about. And we want to give you some launching points to start your own discussions in the comments. Starting with:
Are Matt Barnes, Ron Artest and Kobe Bryant the best defensive trio in the NBA?
Here's one take on it. What do you think?
By the way, the schedule will be released Tuesday. Who wants to bet there will be a Lakers-Miami Christmas Day matchup?
