I just thought of some facts:

- Kobe is going to be 34
- Nash is 38 and is going to play 3 years in LA
- Gasol might be going if he doesnt fit to the system
- If World Peace struggles too he might be shipped away for cash or draft picks


What I exactly mean with my post is, what if now all the expectation which is upon us is going to go through the summer and post season of 2013 and then we fail against OKC/Spurs etc. in the West Finals or in the Finals against the Heat. Then the world is gonna put the blame on us that our Superstar Lineup consists great on the paper but not on the court etc and that we have to find our rhytmn and communication on the court.

I mean it happened to Bosh,LeBron and Wade in 2011 against the Mavericks too. You know they all were stuck together new and they did it in 2012.

So what if we are not going to be the champion in 2013, WHAT I OF COURSE NOT HOPE ;) I hope we are going to be the new champion in 2013....

I mean just imagine if we fail...its gonna be big news in Lalaland.. :unsure: :unsure:

Again, not one second played together, but negativity brought up.

It's astounding!

Is pessimism that necessary for some so they don't work themselves into a frenzy. It's O.K. to be positive about things - holy crap!

The lakers have 82 games in the regular season to get ready for the playoffs. They will be ready. Just enjoy the ride.

Also, worst case scenario, we're the 2010-2011 Miami Heat. And we know how that ended.

Don't worry.. Kobe, Nash, Dwight, etc have probably all thought of this.

They have too much pride to lose with this squad.. they will be ready

For Kobe, Nash and Gasol, it's just a two year window. When Kobe and Nash retire, and if Gasol is gone, we'll have tons of money to rebuild around Dwight. I don't see us having a down year for a long time. It's almost like we can afford to fail. It would hurt not to win it all this year, but it seems we've secured our immediate and later futures.
