CHARLOTTE: GUARDS: KEMBA WALKER has become a more efficient scorer as well as a capable distributor. He'll sacrifice some shots with Al Jefferson coming in, but he should have more space with which to operate. Down the line, he could mesh nicely with pick-and-pop four Cody Zeller . . . GERALD HENDERSON transformed from a raw athlete into an effective, efficient scorer in the second half of last season. He should be the No. 2 or 3 option this year . . . RAMON SESSIONS is locked in as a sixth man. He's not a shooter, but his ability to get to the line makes him an effective second-unit scorer . . . BEN GORDON seems to be going through the motions at this point. His real value this season is his enormous expiring contract. FORWARDS: MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST is going to be a quality NBA player for a long time, but he's not close to being a major factor offensively. He'll continue to defend and rebound effectively for a wing, but he's a No. 4 or 5 option on the offensive end of the court . . . JOSH MCROBERTS proved good enough to be a rotational player on a bad team last year. He has a chance to start early on while the Bobcats bring some young guys along . . . CODY ZELLER struggled against length and athleticism in college, so it seems the 'Cats think he can be more of a stretch, pick-and-pop four. If he proves to be a shooter, he's athletic enough and a good enough rebounder to be a solid NBA starter . . . JEFFERY TAYLOR is a forgettable second-unit player who can defend a couple of positions. ANTHONY TOLLIVER won't see the floor much, but he can stretch the floor with his shooting ability. CENTERS: We'll see how the Bobcats mesh with AL JEFFERSON, the NBA's worst defensive big man and a lane-clogging black hole on offense. He can score, and at (an incredible) $40 million-plus, Charlotte will run everything through him . . . BISMACK BIYOMBO will play some alongside Jefferson, as the Bobcats desperately need to cancel out Jefferson's defense. But the young big man figures to be used more sparingly this year . . . BRENDAN HAYWOOD is still kicking around.
LA LAKERS: GUARDS: KOBE BRYANT is 35 and coming off a ruptured Achilles. Even if he is ready for the season opener (as expected), Achilles injuries have drained the athleticism out of younger men . . . STEVE NASH enters the year healthy, but the training staff has discussed a minutes cap for the 39-year-old point guard . . . NICK YOUNG could grab that other starting wing spot, opposite his boyhood idol. How those two gunners could co-exist is something we'd love to see . . . STEVE BLAKE looked good in this offense last season, but is strictly a back-up . . . JODIE MEEKS might shoot his way into a much bigger role this season . . . XAVIER HENRY will need to prove a lot to earn himself minutes . . . What are you complaining about, Lakers fans? You got JORDAN FARMAR back! FORWARDS: PAU GASOL should benefit from the departure of Dwight Howard, who never bought into head coach Mike D'Antoni's offense or even tried to mesh with Gasol. D'Antoni's up-tempo, Euro-style system is perfectly suited to Gasol's strengths. And when Nash sits, they can run a lot of sets through their big man . . . WESLEY JOHNSON will have a chance to grab the vacant small forward spot. The former No. 4 overall pick has been a big disappointment through three seasons, but he looked decent as a spot-up shooter last seasons . . . JORDAN HILL will be the first big man off the bench in a thin frontcourt rotation. He can rebound and clean up around the basket a bit . . . ELIAS HARRIS keeps the Gonzaga connection going . . . SHAWNE WILLIAMS has had success for D'Antoni, but he is far removed from his days contributing for the Knicks. CENTERS: CHRIS KAMAN is the consolation prize after Dwight Howard's departure. Yes, it's a monstrous downgrade talent-wise, but as a skilled 7-footer, Kaman at least fits D'Antoni's system better . . . ROBERT SACRE has a chance to develop into a useful back-up center.

*Bobcats-Lakers Preview* ========================


Charlotte (20-27) at Los Angeles (16-30), 10:30 p.m. EDT

While the Charlotte Bobcats haven't defeated the Los Angeles Lakers in almost three years, Al Jefferson may be able to get them over the hump Friday night.

Not having to face Kobe Bryant should also help their cause.

The Bobcats try to snap a five-game losing streak against the Lakers, who are on the verge of yet another six-game skid.

Jefferson has been on a tear of late, averaging 26.9 points and 11.9 rebounds while shooting 55.7 percent over the last 10 games. He scored 11 of his season high-tying 35 points in the fourth quarter and added 11 boards as Charlotte (20-27) opened a four-game trip Wednesday with a 101-98 win at Denver.

"I'm getting healthy, I'm getting there. I'm probably at about 85-90 percent right now," said Jefferson, who missed nine of the first 12 games with a sprained ankle. "I'm working towards to get to 100 percent. I have to be able to do it both on both ends. That's the only way this team is going to have a chance at success is if I play at a high level."

Jefferson has scored 22 or more points in nine straight contests. The Bobcats are 11-5 when he reaches that mark compared to 4-18 when he doesn't.

"He is scoring and then we are also scoring off him," coach Steve Clifford said. "His effect on his teammates is good."

Jefferson was held in check during an 88-85 loss to the Lakers on Dec. 14, posting 14 points on 7-of-18 shooting. Bryant, whose 28.2 points per game in 17 lifetime contests versus Charlotte are his most against any team, totaled 21 points, eight assists and seven rebounds in that victory.

While the Lakers (16-30) also went on to win two of their next three games, they have since dropped 17 of 20, enduring two season-worst six-game losing streaks Dec. 21-31 and Jan. 5-15.

Los Angeles is coming off Tuesday's 104-92 defeat to Indiana, its fifth loss in a row. Pau Gasol and Jodie Meeks scored 21 points apiece and Kendall Marshall had 13 assists, but the Lakers were outrebounded 63-50 and gave up 17 offensive rebounds that led to 20 second-chance points.

The Lakers could be hard-pressed to get back on track without Bryant (knee), who has played only six games this season and is expected to remain out through next month's All-Star game.

"It's hard to hear that," Gasol said. "It's hard for our team to be without its best player. We've just got to continue to work and stick together."

Gasol, averaging 20.9 points and 11.7 boards over the last 15 games, has recorded a season-high five consecutive double-doubles. He has been limited to 11.7 points and 35.0 percent shooting in his last three meetings versus Charlotte, though.

Meeks is averaging 21.0 points over the last four games while going 15 of 27 from 3-point range.

The Bobcats could get a boost from point guard Kemba Walker, who is nearing a return from a sprained ankle suffered Jan. 18. Walker, averaging 23.3 points and shooting 54.7 percent in his last three games versus Los Angeles, was averaging 24.8 over a four-game stretch before going down.

The Lakers are 2-9 at home since the start of December, the NBA's second-worst record over that span. They have also gone a league-worst 2-10 against Eastern Conference teams since Dec. 16.

The Bobcats have won three of four against the West after dropping 10 of their first 12.
