The Lakers run through the preseason has come to an end. Despite their valiant efforts, the quest to hoist the illustrious Preseason Championship trophy into the air went up in flames. 0 for 8 it is.

Count 'em up, Dwight referred to the "process" 14 times in total. Process that. Serena Winters of Lakers Nation also caught up with Mike Brown and asked him a few questions in regards to the goals the Lakers may have achieved, as opposed to just the win-loss aspect of what the preseason has amounted for his team.

There are still more questions than answers regarding them, and eight preseason games didn't produce the results any of us wanted to see with what should have been a vastly improved bench going into the season.
