Lakers work on chemistry, defensive identity in 1st team practice

first_img Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Vogel also thinks Rondo, who has traditionally been a middling 3-point shooter, could improve as a long-range threat this season. Using now-Lakers assistant Jason Kidd as an example of a great playmaker who became a better shooter late in his career, Vogel said he expects the 33-year-old Rondo to make a similar transition.“He’s going to get clean looks, he’s going to be encouraged to get a green light, and he’s going to be a good off-the-ball complement to LeBron when he has the ball,” Vogel said. “Then when they’re together he’s going to be playmaking and making things easier for LeBron so he doesn’t have to do it all himself, as well as A.D.”Related Articles AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThat’s the focus and possibly the key for the Lakers, getting James and Davis on the same page. The two are already close off the court, and Vogel foresees their games complementing one another well.It doesn’t mean the work is effortless – both men acknowledged it will take a lot of communication to get their rapport where it needs to be. That started in practice Saturday.“Every little thing to happen today, when we was on the sideline we talked about it,” Davis said. “Even those things, something that went right but something that we can do better in those situations. We’re trying to just talk through everything, figure out each other’s games.”The supporting cast to the James-Davis tandem is also of some intrigue. During the media observation of practice, the top group included James, Davis, Danny Green, JaVale McGee and Rajon Rondo.With Kyle Kuzma sidelined with a foot injury and Vogel interested in testing more lineups throughout the next month, there’s no surefire indication that group will be the season-opening starters. But the team also has seen that Davis has enjoyed good chemistry with Rondo, who played with him in New Orleans for a season. Vogel, who has a reputation as a defensive coach, said the practice was split about 60-40 in favor of defensive fundamentals, with the first hour devoted to defense completely. One of the most physical players in the gym was Howard – something he might have been overzealous about, Vogel said, but which could be integral to the team’s identity.“He probably overdid it a little bit, you know he’s knocking guys around,” he said. “Look, you gotta deal with that. You’re coming to play L.A. Lakers, you’re gonna get hit, you’re gonna smashed in the mouth. And he set the tone in that regard.”center_img What are the Lakers going to look like this year?Some scenes from the end of practice on Day One in Saturday’s first session: Dwight Howard and Anthony Davis colliding in the post. Frank Vogel stopping 5-on-5 to keep the tempo up when running back on defense. A fast-paced lay-up drill to end a two-and-a-half-hour workout.The final product is far from revealed, but the Lakers are aiming to be focused, fast and physical by the time the season starts. And the center of it will be the pairing of LeBron James and Davis, the duo that Vogel is trying to put on the court together the most during the preseason.“I think we got the best of ’em, of all the duos (in the NBA),” he said. “We have two top-five players, two guys who really just do it all.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Suspended NASCAR driver Kyle Larson will make his return to racing in World of Outlaws

first_imgLarson, who also was suspended indefinitely by iRacing for his use of the racial slur, apologized for his use of the word in a video he tweeted the next day.”Kyle is an important and visible stakeholder in the World of Outlaws community as both a driver and team owner,” the World of Outlaws said in a statement on April 14. “Kyle has admitted to making a mistake and it is our expectation that he will make every effort to represent the sport in a professional manner moving forward. Provided that Kyle completes the designated training in the allotted time, he will remain eligible to compete in all World of Outlaws sanctioned events.”The virtual race in which Larson uttered the N-word was not an official NASCAR iRacing event, which have been replacing the live NASCAR Cup Series races that have been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
