NBA preview: New-look Lakers could put the heat on Miami

One other thing.

The Lakers went 0-8 in the preseason, which is meaningless and not worthy of a mention, unless you are the rebuilt Lakers.

At a glance

For openers

The 2012-13 NBA season opens Tuesday with three games — Washington at Cleveland, 5 p.m.; Boston at Miami, 6 p.m. (TNT); and Dallas at the L.A. Lakers, 8:30 p.m. (TNT). The Jazz open against Dallas on Wednesday at Energy Solutions Arena, part of 10-game schedule that night.

Nobody seems to worried prior to L.A.’s regular-season opener Tuesday night against Dallas, but a slow start in the games that count would jolt Laker Nation like a 6.5 earthquake.

Don’t count on it, however.

Owner Jerry Buss didn’t approve a $100 million payroll to play second fiddle to the Heat.

Or the Clippers.
