My guess is Lakers win 30-35 games next season. Probably not enough to be top 5 in the draft unless they pull a Cleveland.

im guessing we're gonna be 6-8th next year, unless some blatant tanking is done, or unless most east teams miraculously  gets better this upcoming season

SG spot will open up if Kobe decides to retire. The best option is to take 6'6 Terran Petteway. He's actually up to 218 lbs/4% BF. He also has a wingspan of 6'10 measured at the kevin durant camp.

It looks like the NBA is trying to change the lottery in a way that would make it easier for teams to jump up.

Damn, we could end up anywhere from 3rd seed to making the playoffs.

 

Considering the teams in the West that are likely to be worse than us:

Utah, Sac and Denver are in the mix.

In the east:

Philly, Milwaukee, Orlando.

 

We could very well end up with the 6th-7th spot - which would go to Phoenix. OR we could get lucky in the lottery and get a top 3.

I know Kobe isnt in his prime

 

 

But

 

I still think having

Lin and Nick Yooung , aong with old Kobe can be equal to have prime Kobe andSmush and Shammond Williams.....what I mean to say is , I like the overall perimeter game

 

 

the West is stacked

 

But 

 

Could SAS have injury derail them, or could paying Boris Diaw backfire in any way?

Could Curry and Bogut have injury plagued seasons?

 

What is Portland long term?

 

Is Phonix constructed the right way?

 

 

I think some teams can be worse than last season

Minnesota will likely be worse

 

 

If Lakers can put their head down and surprise people for the first 20 games and end up 12-8 per se

 

Maybe Kobe, Lin, Swaggy and the tough set of bigs we have can grit out some games

 

 

 

So much depends on Kobe though

 

If hje is Wizard Jordan...this will be ALL about KObe and Randle and CLarkson

 

 

If he is closer to 43% Kobe, then we have a shot to make the playoffs

For some reason, I think this Lakers team just may make the playoffs.

On paper the talent looks like a fringe playoff team, but the West is insane next year. In addition, there are too many uncertainties to deal with like Kobe and the rest of the team's health. In reality we will probably win 35 and end up in the 10th seed, aka basketball purgatory. I'd love to be proven wrong, but until the draft reform the best positions are contender and bottom-feeder.

People said the same thing about last years team before the season.

Utah Sac and Denver will have a better starting 5 than we do.

Utah and Sacramento are pretty arguable.
