Lee Jenkins: Focused on the future, Lakers letting present slip away

LOS ANGELES -- Every training camp, Phil Jackson orders a drill in which his team has to make a combined 82 full-court lay-ups within a span of two minutes. If they need more time, they start over and do it again. Jackson rarely runs the drill during the season, lest he wear out veteran legs, but he dusted it off during a break in the playoffs last spring, and then watched the Lakers sprint to their second straight title. At practice Monday, Jackson told players to line up under the basket, and they knew what was coming next.
