The Lakers spent Thursday getting ready for their Friday night matchup with the Washington Wizards. During the practice session, the Lakers allotted some time to take their annual team picture. It was a rare chance to see Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash in Laker jerseys this season. Nick Young also practiced Thursday and is expected to come off the bench and make his return Friday.
Off the court, Lakers president visited ESPN LA 710 radio Wednesday for a radio interview. She emphasized her position at the top of the Lakers’ decision making. With Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak in charge of the basketball operations, Jeanie said she is confident in the direction and ability to get the Lakers back to their winning ways.
