Chris Kaman arrives at arena 10 minutes prior to game, starts

Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

When the Los Angeles Lakers flew to Milwaukee for Thursday’s game against the Bucks, Chris Kaman remained behind for personal reasons before getting on a commercial plane.

Kaman indeed started, scoring 13 points and grabbing four rebounds in Los Angeles’ loss to the Bucks.

Some players don’t need as much time to warm up as others. Surely, Kaman and Mike D’Antoni had a meaningful discussion to determine whether he could handle starting on such a strange schedule.

    I hope the future starting center for the lakers is Hill. Kaman, while a talented player, just hasn’t shown any passion for the game since he’s been in LA. So what if he doesn’t like the coach, nobody does. He just doesn’t strike me as someone other players want to battle with in the heat of the playoffs. Hill is a great teammate and an above average starting NBA center.

      Let’s just say the “Hill is a great teammate” thing is not really true. He’s not loved in the locker room or by management.

        You mean whatever us “experts” on these boards type isn’t the truth?

        The entertainment value is quite high on boards like these for me…

        Blasphemy! Give us some examples about the best player on the Lakers not named Bryant…

    Hill can’t be starting center, he just isn’t god enough. Besides, he isn’t the most loved player on the team.

      I think god is point guard, not a center.
