LA Lakers 2013-14 Preseason Tracker: Latest News, Tweets, Media from China Trip

The Los Angeles Lakers have quite a slate of action lined up for their preseason. In fact, it should top the Miami Heat's training camp adventures in the Bahamas as the most interesting trip of the pre-regular season action. 

It's all about China, the country that has embraced Kobe Bryant as one of its own over the years. 

After an international flight on Friday, Oct. 11, the Lakers had a full slate of activities lined up. Between then and the second preseason game against the Golden State Warriors, one that will take place on Oct. 18 in Shanghai, the team will visit The Great Wall, the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and so much more that their envy-invoking destination has to offer.
