Lakers News: Chris Kaman Says Lakers ‘More Professional’ Than Clippers

In an effort to fill the void left by Dwight Howard, the Los Angeles Lakers went out and signed veteran center Chris Kaman during the NBA off-season.

Although Kaman is no longer the All-Star-caliber player he used to be with the Los Angeles Clippers, the NBA journeyman is still a force to be reckoned with inside the paint and a welcome addition to the team.

Recently, Kaman was asked about the difference between the Lakers and Clippers organizations. Kaman said the following via Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com:

“Everything changes. Here, everything is a little bit more professional, I guess I would say is the word I would use. Without being disrespectful to the Clippers, I think this is a little bit more professional of an organization. Now, the Clippers have turned things around and I think with Doc [Rivers] there and the changes in some cast members, I think they’re going to be pretty solid as well.”

Despite only being back in Los Angeles for a short time, Kaman has clearly seen a difference between the organizations. Kaman stressed the professionalism of the storied Lakers franchise in comparison to the Clippers and that really comes as no surprise considering the team’s history.

Kaman’s role on the current Lakers squad remains to be seen. Head coach Mike D’Antoni has let it be known that he intends to shift four-time All-Star Pau Gasol back to center while seriously considering Kaman as the starter power forward.

As of right now, Kaman will likely come off the bench heading into the preseason, but that may very well change as D’Antoni attempts mix things up to find the right fit at the four spot.

    “a bit” more professional == “a lot” more professional
