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


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.
