"His return was a surprise. I didn't expect it. Now this will no longer be the last year of my career, for sure. I'm doing ten hours of yoga a day to be better prepared. I get up every morning at 4 a.m. to train before training. When I sleep? Never. With Barba I won 17 NBA titles, 12 Finals Mvp and I have no intention of stopping. Old? He knows me, he knows how to handle me. Kareem has played four NBA Finals and won three rings from 38 to 42 years old. That is my goal.
The Opening Night tomorrow in Salt Lake City will be very exciting. Can't wait. Playing for Barba is a so transcendental experience I didn't think I could relive it."

The whole Lakers season will revolve around Kobe. In a moment of his career on the balance of two demons, a past as a ruler and a future in decline, Kobe will fight them both, well aware that the latter will be unbeatable.
But he will fight it anyway, with all his strength.
And it will be a real blast.
He will alternate old style 50-point performances with 90 shots with other 15-point games without a missed shot, with others where he will flirt with the triple double.
I repeat, it will be a real blast. And it will all start again in the Opening Game in Salt Like City of the first 29 games Association.

Barba's surprise move, that's Wiggins

(Oct, 2016) "He does not have the right attitude to become a star? With me will have." Nobody believes in Wiggo as Barba who's enchanted by smoothness, elegant players. The canadian small forward is an elite athlete, as there are few around, and this seems to be enough for Barbatrucco, despite all the flaws. For "The Ninja of the North" to go to the next level means that he needs someone to help him devise a better mental strategy. Needs to think a bit differently than he currently is. His emotional state is erratic which is why his games are inconsistent.
"He's only twenty-one - says Barba - I bet all of you journalists at twenty-one wrote like dogs, don't you?"
Image
Despite the Barba words, Wiggins could become a trading pawn in some months to get Draft Pick. His first contract (6 million this year) makes he easily salable on the market.
Barbatrucco send to TWolves the fresh 2 overall pick of the Draft, small forward Brandon Ingram and some second draft picks managing to get rid of Timofey Mozgov's cumbersome contract sending him to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for the 2013 first overall pick Anthony Bennett.

Twelve players with expiring contract out of sixteen

Wiggins is the twelve player with expiring contract on a roster made up of fourteen, including the other four newcomers to El Segundo, the twenty-nine French point guard Nando De Colo, the 26-year-old Greek small forward Barba Pretorian Kostas Papanikolaou and centers Javale McGee and Anthony Bennett (both signed at minimum salary).
Barba has created the right conditions to be able to lay down the law in the next free agency where there will be players like Kevin Durant, Giannis Antetokounmpo and LeBron James.

The usual Barba, sacking Salt Lake City in its old ways

(Nov, 2016) Wild, devil Barba! Away from the scenes since 2014, with a 38-year-old Kobe snatched from retire, with Julius Randle out of the game with a knee injury in the first minutes and a whole new expiring-contract-team, the Coach Zen made the hit in Salt Lake City in the Opening Game tripping the Jazz for 76-81. Kobe, 23, stick a fiery dart in the heart of the Jazz with an hanged triple coming off a screen: 71-76. With 37 "left.
Image
Lakers bench surprised everyone, as always in the Barba teams. The French point guard Nando De Colo, one of Coach Zen's protégés, has placed 8 points with 2/3 behind the arc, scoring a key-three with 5 min left that has shifted the inertia of the match. The Greek forward Kostas Papanikolaou, Coach Zen's praetorian, has upset the Jazz defense in power forward position as substitute of Randle playing like Tony Kukoc and Barba's influences have been positive also on the 2013 first overall pick Anthony Bennett, who had disappeared in years from the NBA, and today author of an substance game in the middle with 9 boards (it's an 8 min quarter game).
Wiggins (1/7 for three) start off the bench.
"I'm tougher with my pupils, as Papanikoloau knows - says Barba. Wig is only 21, if he wants a place in the starting five, he must deserve it."

INJURY REPORT
Julius Randle suffered an injury in the first quarter against the Utah Jazz and has not returned in game. The medical response speaks of a contusion to the right knee and a short recovery time.
