Stu Lantz is this weeks, “Broadcast of the week.” Congrats to our magnificent broadcasting team and especially to Stu! Over on NBA.com, he broke down eight reasons the Lakers can succeed this season…

NBA.com: 1) A Season of Health
Last year, especially, the Lakers did not have any kind of luck with their health. Most teams at some point suffer from the injury bug, but the Lakers were really hit last season with their core players sustaining injuries. Kwame Brown missed half the season. Chris Mihm, projected as a starter, missed the whole season. Lamar Odom missed 26 games. Vladimir Radmanovic, for numerous reasons, missed 27 games. And Luke Walton missed 22 games. So luck is something they need this year regarding their health, especially to their main two, Kobe and Lamar.

2) Growth by the Youngsters
As the second youngest team in the league at 25 years and 158 days, the Lakers young kids have to continue to grow as players. Andrew Bynum has shown some real good growth from the beginning of the season to date (see his 20 point, 11 rebound, 5 block performance vs. Golden State). Jordan Farmar has given them energy and three-point shooting off the bench. And they recently traded for 22-year-old Trevor Ariza. All of them have to continue to display the growth that they have thus far if this team is going to get to where it wants to go.

    Stu is a Great Broadcaster because he is accurate when he gives his take and he is a great teacher of the game. You can learn alot from him by just listening to his broadcast.

    Lame-ar Odumb, Kwame Brown Stain, Luke Walton, Chris Mihm? These guys have been horrible this year, particularly Lame-ar and Luke. Mihm is a good backer. It is a shame he’s always hurt. The other three have to GO ASAP!!!

    You can include Sasha in any trade too. Maybe that would free up some playing time for J Crit. He’s got talent.

    We’ve got a lot of rubbish to unload, so let’s KEEP Andrew, Farmar, J Crit and Ariza. We finally have some talent and these people including these productive players in a trade while holding out hope that Lame-ar is going to come around are FOOLS!!!
