BVIslander D’Moi Hodge was present and in good spirits for his Los Angeles Lakers Media Day on Monday, the first official team activity ahead of the 2023-2024 NBA season.

The season officially commences on Tuesday, October 24 and the Lakers will take on the defending NBA champions, the Denver Nuggets, in one of the two opening games.
