We can it win it with or without him.

With him however will be nice. I want the full, healthy roster. There will be hell to pay.

It will be much harder without. Bynum changes the opposing team's offense. That's what a defensive minded shot blocking big does. Our defense is a huge concern still.

We're going to need a defensive anchor in the post, guys. Nobody is scared of Gasol like they were with Shaq (even though Shaq would've fouled out defending guards driving the lane, they didn't want to be put on a stretcher, either).

Back in our three-peat, the Lakers had a motto: our offense is our best defense (I believe this is Phil Jackson's quote).

Well, there was a reason for that. The Kobe and Shaq duo was so dominant, post and perimeter, that teams had to double one or the other, and it left the other open.

If Gasol would bang his way into the post much more, get more physical, my God...it would be fantastic. He would get more looks, also...and we'd have that duo back. Teams would have to double Gasol, and Kobe would go wild...or vice-versa.

But what will happen when we reach the finals again?

It depends on who the matchup is, I'm confident the Lakers can go about dismissing the Cavs without Andrew Bynum, however, I'm not so confident against a scrappy Boston Celtics' team, with Kendrick Perkins and Kevin Garnett being an ultra-physical frontcourt, you're going to need a big body like the A-Bomb to not let the Lakers' frontcourt get knocked around. The same applies for the Orlando Magic and Dwight Howard. When it comes down to the wire, whether anyone likes it or not, physicality and defense is the name of the game, an area the Boston Celtics are clearly better in.

Liked the vid. Wish it was longer. But yeah we do in fact need Bynum....
"If you could stop all the players that get publicized and all the players that the NBA likes and all the players, you know, the players that win the MVP's, you know, for their offense. And some of them, you know, play pretty good defense too. But some of them, you know, they like "this guy he can shoot, he can score, he can dunk." and I want to be the one to stop all those guys, you know, and just kinda spoil the whole party." - Ron Artest

Possible either way.

Sure it will be easier to win it all with Drew than without. I saw some stupid article the other day stating Boston was better without Garnett. That was dumb as Karl saying LA was better without Drew. However, getting Drew back makes it easier it guarantees nothing. Some of you act as if as soon as Drew gets back all the defensive problems are solved. Hardly the case. LA was stinking it up on D before Drew went down. The Kings rolled the Lakers and the Knicks went wild against LA for a half. Perkins has more than held his own with Drew each time they have played and Howard has owned him. Get Drew back, but it will still be a battle. I do think LA wins it though. They did beat Boston and Cleveland on the road without Drew. With him it should get somewhat easier.

I'm still sticking to what I said prior, Bynum will be the MVP of the playoffs.
