“It’s very easy for you journalists to get people to discuss our time. We understand that. We know it’s your job and you have to do it. We laugh about it, we welcome it with a bit of bitterness, and then we move on.”
Everyone has the right to have their opinion of us, but we are the only ones who know who we are. We know what to do and how we will do it.

As a reminder, the Los Angeles Lakers team this season will consist of: LeBron James (36), Carmelo Anthony (37), Marc Gasol (36), Trevor Ariza (36), Dwight Howard (34), Rajon Rondo (35), Deandre Jordan ( 33), Wes Matthews (33), Wayne Ellington (32), Russell Westbrook (32), Kent Basemore (32), all closer to the end of their careers than the beginning.
