Dave McMenamin's post on LA Lakers | Latest updates on Sulia
Here are some additional quotes that didn't make it into my story tonight ...
Kobe Bryant on the Lakers' stacked starting five: "We're playing extremely well. It is pretty effortless for us."
Chuck Hayes on going up against the twin towers in Pau and Dwight: "They're like the Avengers out there. They're huge."
Dwight Howard on his performance: "I think I was very active on both ends of the floor … Other than that, I was a little rusty. Offensively I’m just trying to get my timing back. Defensively I’m just trying to be there for my teammates. I think we’re going to be a good team this year. I think we’re going to be good."
Mike Brown on where the Lakers' roster stands (CDR, Goudelock, DJO, Morris and Somogyi were all DNPs): "We know that we have to cut down still. I think we got 18 guys. I don’t even know when the cut date is, but it’s something that we got to keep talking about."
