Plus, they will have a new offense. As Lakers Coach Mike Brown told Bresnahan <a href="http://www.latimes.com/sports/basketball/nba/lakers/la-sp-lakers-20121008,0,3146966.story">earlier this week</a>, when asked about who the focal point of the offense will be:</p><p>"All these guys are good guys and I truly believe they all want to win a championship," Brown said. "If they do, they'll figure out ways to sacrifice a little bit but not giving up their aggressive styles."</p><p>What's the name of the offense, which was devised by Brown and assistant Eddie Jordan?</p><p>"At the end of the year, if we're in the top five offensively, we'll call it Brown's offense," Brown said. "If we're in the bottom five, we'll call it Jordan's offense."</p><p>Meanwhile, as Turner <a href="http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-clippers-del-negro-20120927,0,5889088.story">wrote last week</a>,</p><p>"The <a class="taxInlineTagLink" href="http://www.latimes.com/topic/sports/basketball/los-angeles-clippers-ORSPT000103.topic">Clippers</a>' playoff run last spring and their busy off-season of stockpiling talent simply increased the pressure on them to be successful this season."</p><p>If you have a question for Mike or Brad, send an email to sportshangout@latimes.com and we will try to answer it on the air.</p><p> </p>
