Yesterday, the Lakers lost to FC Barcelona and remained winless in the NBA Pre Season.  Yes, the Lakers are just visiting Europe thank their fans across the ocean, but at least put on a good show.  The Lakers lost to Minnesota Timberwolves, and FC Barcelona, both team who do not even compare to the Lakers.  Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum may be injured, but the rest of the team has to make an effort to win.  The Lakers are currently 0-2 in the pre season, and no Laker fan can be pleased with their performance thus far.  Let’s hope the team’s performance does not foreshadow the Lakers’ regular season.
