The 2016-17 Lakers season will tip off on Thursday. It starts with the team’s annual Media Day, held on Sept. 26 at the practice facility in El Segundo. Followed by
the Lakers training camp in Santa Barbara on Sept, 27. It will happen for the first time since 1999. It’s where they started their 1998-1999 and 1999-2000 campaigns.
The six-day camp will run until Oct. 2 in Robertson Gymnasium on the UC Santa Barbara campus. The team is scheduled for one three-hour session on the first and last days, as well as two two-hour practices for the middle four.
The team will travel south to Anaheim two days after the last practice in Santa Barbara in order to commence the 2016 preseason with a game against Sacramento on Oct. 4.
The annual preseason tour will feature two games at Staples Center, two in Anaheim, two in Las Vegas and one apiece in Ontario and San Diego
