Radmanovic Looks to Continue Upward Trend

After a forgettable first season with the Lakers two years ago in which he was immobilized due to a snowboarding injury, Vladimir Radmanovic said in his exit interview that he thinks this season brought an increased comfort level with his offensive game and so to, his new city. Ramdanovic said he had a “good season, but as a basketball player, you’re never really satisfied with what you do.”

Going into this season, Vladi said he felt the need to prove himself somewhat after drawing criticism for his ill-advised snowboarding mishap in 2006-07–a goal he feels he accomplished.

Entering next season, the sharpshooter said that paying attention to the details will be critical in the Lakers’ attempt to duplicate their NBA Finals appearance. According to Radmanovic, simple mistakes such as turnovers often mean the difference between winning an NBA title and coming up two wins short. For his part, Vladi said that he plans on working on his consistency in 2008-09–a feat he said will be made easier by the triangle offense.
