SamJacobson was supposed to stay home after college and play in front of the hometown fans, living around the corner from his parents in Cottage Grove and drudging through snowstorms in a four-wheel drive to get to home games at the Target Center.
Jacobson has had to make the adjustment to being away from home, in addition to that pesky lack of playing time.
His dad, Chuck Jacobson, said it's not a surprise that Sam hasn't played yet because the Lakers are loaded at the guard position with all-stars Kobe Bryant and Eddie Jones.
