Lakers Nation Week In Review: Aug. 3- Aug. 10
The 2013-14 season is still some time away, but Lakers fans got a glimpse into the next 82 games as the schedule was released this past week. Although the Lakers will be going into the season with lower expectations, the team is still a marquee franchise and will be playing on the league’s biggest days.
The new season will tip off on Oct. 29, and the Lakers will be one of the few teams suiting up on that night. At this point it is unclear whether or not Kobe Bryant will play, but regardless, fans will get to see the Battle of L.A. between the Lakers and Clippers.
It was a busy week at Lakers Nation, and here is a look back.
