Sights and sounds from Day 2 of training camps across NBA Eddie En Fuego Shirt . Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony look sharp in Purple and Gold, Bradley Beal gets Mic’d Up and rookie Scottie Barnes shows off his dance moves With apologies to Allen Iverson, we’re talking about practice. Not a game. Practice, which is how players prepare for the 82-game marathon ahead.We got our first look at Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook in Purple and Gold on Wednesday as the Los Angeles Lakers held their first official practice, while the other 29 teams continued their training camp grind.Here’s a snapshot from each team as we count the days until Opening Night.NBA Board of Governors approves instant replay changesThe NBA Board of Governors today approved changes to the league’s instant replay rules on a one-year trial basis for the 2021-22 season.In an effort to improve game flow, particularly at the end of games, the NBA has eliminated referee-initiated replay review of out-of-bounds violations during the last two minutes of the fourth period and the last two minutes of any overtime period. In conjunction, the league has also extended the Coach’s Challenge so that teams can trigger replay review of out-of-bounds violations throughout the entire game. Previously, coaches could not challenge an out-of-bounds ruling in the last two minutes.The NBA’s Competition Committee – comprised of players, coaches, governors, team executives and referees – recommended the changes to the instant replay rules before the Board of Governors’ vote.LeBron James has heard the basketball world talking about how the Los Angeles Lakers are too old, and he is laughing — both literally and figuratively.“Some of the memes and some of the jokes have been extremely funny,” James said with a grin Tuesday.At 36 years old, James is on a roster of his peers as he enters his 19th NBA season. Nine of the Lakers’ 14 current players are 32 or older, including including eight of their 11 new additions — and Anthony Davis is a high-mileage 28.
Eddie En Fuego Shirt, hoodie, sweater, longsleeve and ladies t-shirtDepending on any late moves, the Lakers’ average age is likely to be nearly 31, which would be two years older than any other NBA roster Eddie En Fuego Shirt .But instead of fixating on his new teammates’ 1980s birthdates, James thinks people should be focusing on the skill, experience and athleticism represented by all those numbers. Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and a supporting cast of accomplished NBA veterans are teaming up with James and Davis, and they are confident they can prove age is not yet a hindrance to their incredible talent.“We come out and we put the time in, we put the work in,” James said. “We make our own narrative. One thing that we know (is) who we are. We’ve got a bunch of guys that have been in this league quite a while that understand and know what it takes to win. The business that we’re in is winning, and doing it all the time.”The rest of James’ new teammates react to the questions around their ages with the same raised eyebrows. The Lakers all seem to wonder why the skeptics don’t realize these players have outlasted dozens of younger players in the NBA for some very good reasons.“It’s never bulletin-board material, because it’s somebody else’s narrative,” said Carmelo, a close friend of LeBron and fellow member of the 2003 Draft class. “We don’t get moments like this often where you have a group of guys with this stature on one team who all like each other. That’s hard to find.”The Lakers got together Tuesday at their training complex for Media Day, exactly three weeks before their regular-season opener against Golden State at Staples Center.With just three players returning from last season’s team, the Lakers realize they have work to do, and they’ve already begun their bonding with a recent weekend trip to Las Vegas. They hope to find a groove swiftly with a roster also including Kent Bazemore, Trevor Ariza, Rajon Rondo and Dwight Howard, who all had previous stints with the Lakers, veteran center DeAndre Jordan — along with youngsters Malik Monk and Kendrick Nunn.James isn’t worried about finding a rhythm with Westbrook, the ball-dominating Los Angeles native landed by the Lakers in a blockbuster trade with Washington after averaging a triple-double yet again last season. The third-leading scorer in NBA history cited his years of experience in playing alongside gifted teammates ranging from Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love.“I’m very cerebral about what I need to do in order for our team to be as great as we can be, and also to (complement) what Russ brings to the table,” James said. “I always figure it out. I don’t think it’s going to be like peanut butter and jelly to start the season, but that’s all part of the process and all part of my work. I like to actually put in the work to get to how great it can be.”
