Forward Metta World Peace got creative before the team’s final preseason tuneup in San Diego. As MWP walked out to the court for his normal pregame routine he picked up team photographer Noah Graham’s camera and, after a quick lesson on focus, snapped off a couple pics of his teammates. Check them out below.
The Stanley Cup continues to make the rounds around Los Angeles and Sunday night that included visiting a place that it knows very well, STAPLES Center. Except this time the hardwood was down on the floor instead of the ice.
As the team exited the locker room following their postgame media obligations they were able to stop and spend a moment with the most historical trophy in sports. Here’s a look at Dwight Howard, Mike Brown and Metta World Peace checking out the cup. Thanks to the LA Kings for sharing the big guy with us for an evening.

From Mike Trudell’s @LakersReporter twitter account:
Kobe Bryant will not play tonight due to a right shoulder strain. He’s listed as day to day.
After getting his extra stretching in and talking with the media, Kobe Bryant was back on the floor working with player development coach Phil Handy. As Bryant drilled with Handy, assistant coach Chuck Person walked by and wanted a shot at guarding Kobe one-on-one.

Dwight Howard finishes with authority through traffic during the 5-on-5-on-5 drill during Thursday afternoon’s practice.
