Banner day

The Lakers won’t raise their 2008-09 championship banner until opening night next Tuesday at Staples Center. They will hold a formal ceremony, raising the banner and handing out championship rings before facing the Clippers. However, that didn’t stop the team from hanging their four most-recent title banners in the gym at their practice facility this week.The Lakers plan to hang banners for all 15 of the franchise’s titles, but they got started with the four won while Phi Jackson has been the team’s coach.
