Under the radar and counted out already. Cannot be bad as last year, so being underdogs I embrace it and welcome it. Go Lakers!

Don't know if you guys checked out the Kobe Q&A but man he was funny, he mentioned the ESPN ranking too. lol

Although there is a good chance that this team may not be all that good, it will still be easier to watch than last season. I'm sure everybody here knows just how frustrating it was to watch that "super team" struggle night in and night out and get swept in the playoffs. I mean, just the fact that there will be less drama this season is a win in my books.

Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

I kinda like this team...
they just need a PF...
Its full of people who are HAPPY to be a laker...
And proud to play with Kobe...
No players like Jamison who came for a free ride for a Ring...
no players like howard who are going to cry and whine over the pecking order
just a bunch of people who want to be lakers

That's what makes it seem like it's going to be a fun year. There should be a nice cohesion of players that will just play hard together. I'm excited off of that alone.

yep, players who cooperate and function as a TEAM, KEY WORD: 'TEAM'
will end up playing better
this season will be interesting

I keep looking back at how Farmar, Sasha, Ariza , Ronny looked UP to Kobe and Fish so that big bro- lil bro bond is different than the role Blake Barnes and Metta played.
Wes, Farmar,NY,Hill,Meeks and Odom/Jamison/Vet yet to be waived/Lou Amundson
I think u have guys fighting for NBA lives, all of which have things they are good at.
I think Nash, Pau and Kaman could play .500 ball or better for an entire year without Kobe. Especially with Young, Meeks, Hill and two back ups for Nash.
My question is would they trade Pau and Blake for a Young stud and maybe One bad contract.
Because Blake playing well could leverage a JHill type deal easily, if a team needs a back up PG , and Farmar and Nash have solid seasons.
And Pau is still a 19 mill dollar expiring and Lakers have sold everybody on 2014 but things could come to a head with Rondo or Love or even Westbrook. Perkins is a bad contract. Blake and Pau fit better on theory around Serge Thabo and Kevin.
Ill build around Westbrook with Kobe as his mentor.

Nick Young already recruiting DeRozan
I've always liked Steve Blake.
