They were MUCH better than everyone else last year. I won't count them out. . losing Wallace, etc, for a few games won't help. But, they'll roll through the playoffs. . however, Coach Brown seems to have lost a little edge. . he's probably still pissed about the Olmpics.
Miami's a whole new team with Shaq obviously, so that will be an interesting matchup if they play.
I've got center court 5th row tickets to see them pound Memphis when I head out there over xmas. I'll stay w/ my Dad who's in Desert Mountain. . harley central up there by Cave Creek. I may have to break down and rent one. lol
I am not giving up hope on my team the Lakers will come back strong and win...
I grew up a Lakers fan and Magic is my favorite player ever, even went to his b-ball camp. lol But, I can't stand Kobe, and haven't liked the Lakers since he's been there.
I'm more of a college b-ball fan, just get tired of the pros and their attitudes. But, there's some decent b-ball being played right now. I was hoping everyone might wake up and play a little defense after the Pistons roll last year. . but nope, everyone still scoring 90-100+ every game.
