I was his primary caregiver for the past 7 years and we became extremely close and tho' I'll miss him greatly, I'll cherish the memories of the time we spent together.

I knew this blog was special and you guys are why...thanks again so much for your kind thoughts,words,and prayers. It means so much at a time like this.

Let's go Ls...all the way to a 3-peat!!!!!

@GDUB...

I want to add my condolences to this community's expressions for your loss. Losing a loved one for whom you are the primary caregiver leaves a hole in our hearts that eventually is filled with the wonderful memories time shared. But it takes time. God bless you during your journey from loss and grief to comfort.

TENDENCIES TO CONSIDER . . .

--I know we all are excited about D Caracter's potential. But I am noticing a tendency of him having his shots blocked more often than not. NBA success will require him reckoning with this reality.

--Through three meaningless preseason games (major point not to overlook), Kobe's outside shot is consistently off, but wildly so. No pattern (sometimes long, sometimes wide right, then wide left, etc.). Clear indication his legs are not in shape yet.

--Ball in Steve Blake's hands already leads to better flow in the triangle than what Farmar accomplished after years in the system. Expect more three-point accuracy from him once others (Barnes, Brown, Odom) develop game chemistry with him and better floor spacing becomes a positive by-product.

--The loveable Ron Artest is taking body-balanced, floor-balanced, in-the-flow three-pointers with confidence unlike at anytime last year. Definitely see him settling in to a comfort zone in the triangle now.

--Theo Ratliffe can still cover ground and block shots in the paint. Defense has yet to plan for and trust in him yet. It will come as the season unfolds. Amazing combo of Bynum/Gasol/Ratliffe shot-blocking rotation will make wing defender combo of Kobe/Artest/Barnes even more aggressive.

--Has anyone spotted the "contract-year" Sasha yet?
