The Los Angeles Lakers finished preseason 0-6, falling 116-112 to the Kings Thursday night.
That doesn’t matter — literally — but what does matter is if the Lakers’ stars look ready for the season that tips off next Tuesday.
Does that 0-6 record bother the Lakers?
Is Russ worried at all about the team’s 0-6 preseason?

Like the Lakers’ record, that number is wiped clean as the season starts, but the Kings showed an offensive flow that can give them confidence going into the season. The Lakers’ offense showed connectivity and flow for stretches as well, but the defense has a ways to go — and starting against Stephen Curry and the Warriors is no way to ease into the season.
But at least LeBron looks ready.
