No.

I personally don't think we have even peaked yet.

Our defense was consistent to start but has been inconsistent the last several games. We need to clean that up.

Bynum and Pau are finally getting into a groove where both are scoring in double-digits every night. Earlier, either one was in double-figures or the other wasn't. Their chemistry is getting better, but still a ways to go.

Our half-court execution needs to improve. Especially feeding the post.

Kobe's shooting hasn't been great the last several games either.

There are plenty of other things that we're not doing.

The big reason why we're 13-1 is our bench, which I believe is the best in the league. With Ariza, Odom, and Farmar as your main 3 guys off the bench, you can make mistakes and not pay for them. Not even Dallas was as deep as we are.



"The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure.
The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences,
and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon,
for each day to have a new and different sun."

There is a LOT of room for improvement. That's the thing. People associate winning with peaking - not the case here. Because we MAY not at the level yet to beat Boston.... that's my take.

Did Boston peak too early last year?
Did the 72-10 Bulls peak too early?

Get a grip.

Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers
