Hopefully Bynum is back to full health by the end of the regular season... :mellow:
My vote for this one--surprisingly, would be the Jazz or the Nuggets.

WITNESS Kobe.

You can take the Hornets off the list. They just traded Chandler for Joe Smith, Wilcox from Thunder. Not only does this eliminate New Orleans as a possible championship dark horse it also keeps Boston from getting Joe Smith.

Exactly. The only team capable of beating the Lakers if they play to their capacity is the Lakers themselves.

The Celtics, The Rockets, and the Spurs if they are able to acquire Vince Carter are all viable threats.

The Spurs are better off keeping Mason, Hill, and Bowen. Even Duncan said so.

I agree.

At this rate, our places might start getting over-confident and start underestimating teams.

I don't think any team in the NBA can beat a healthy Lakers team.

The Lakers have the best starting 5, deeper team, good bench, etc...

Bynum comes back and Lakers play defense = 2008-2009 NBA Champions

Ourselves. No one can beat us if we play the way we are supposed to play. It seems like these guys think they are too good now. Which is evident by underestimating Denver and Phoenix.

Bynum's knee, Gasol's defense, and Kobe's chucking are the biggest threats to the Lakers.
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

Who? If the Lakers reach the finals,then Celtics the most(but who says they are even playing the finals). But if Cavs defeat Celtics then i ''fear'' Cavs less in the finals... And thats why the homecourt advantage is SO IMPORTANT !!! It's safe to say that the Lakers have homecourt adv. all the way to the finals,which is just great.

The thing i fear most is the Celtics have a better record than the Lakers,nothing is worse!
