L.A. Looks: Vladimir Radmanovic

Phil changed up his look this year by chopping the facial hair and growing out his hair.  Kobe lost the shooting sleeve and went back to the classic 90s Jordan style of rocking a wristband around his elbow.  Now it’s Rad’s turn to change up his style, too.  Though the general public might feel like Rad lacks personality and general American bubbliness, I would argue otherwise.  Interviews with teammates and coaches always reveal that Rad’s nature is “jocular.”  In fact, Rad changes his look more than anyone on the Laker squad along with Jordan Farmar because of the constant hair square-inch flunctuations on his head.  But Jordan Farmar is still young and is from L.A., so its pretty expectable that he’s into his looks.  But Vlad Rad?  Yes!  He just might be the second most image-conscious Laker (next to Sasha).  Yes, there’s a functional reason for the tinted goggles (a Carmelo Anthony poke to the eye), but trust me, there is an ulterior “L.A.” reason for the goggles.  I just can’t put my finger on it…

    horace grant with three point range? the lakers have often had pretty goofy power forwards (kurt rambis) who know their role and play it well… i’m starting to think vlad rad fits the mold.

    For sure…i mean Vlad isn’t bad at all, its just that his deficiencies are magnified when hes up agianst the world’s best like Paul Pierce…..He did well in every playoff series last year except against Celtics….and lets face it….which Laker actually played well in that series?
