ESPN.com ranked the NBA’s top contenders:

6. Los Angeles Lakers – Imagine Kobe Bryant changing his request from “trade me” to “parade me.” A team that keeps maturing with Andrew Bynum can dare to dream. Still, a much longer shot than the five above this slot.

Also, according to the Hollinger Power Rankings that measure each team’s performance in the season. The Lakers have the best chance in the Western Conference to go to the NBA finals and win the NBA title.

We are now 10 games over .500, and considered by experts as contenders. All this after losing out on Garnett, making no big trades, and Kobe demanding out. Did even us die hard Laker fans expect this kind of start? The emergence of Bynum, our 2nd unit statistically one of the best in the league, and a happy Kobe. Sound off in comments on what you think of the season thus far!

    And the Lakers are NUMBER 4 in Marc Steins NBA power rankings. I havent seen them this high for years. I know it’s just one mans thoughts on the top NBA teams. However, its finally good to get some respect for OUR team.
    http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/powerranking?season=2008&week=10

    Were making moves! And finally getting praise for it!

  • gugy

    There is no reason to celebrate yet.
    We are doing well, but let’s wait until the regular season ends and the playoffs starts in order to praise this team.

  • Lakers4life

    Even though the lakers r doing good right now just remember that we started this good last year n we finished @ 42-40 so how knows what going to happen

  • nyla

    Cavs a contender? And over Orlando?? Are you kidding me?? lol ESPN needs to revise their hiring process. They’re starting to embarrass themselves. By the way, where is New Orleans? If we’re considered contenders, they have to be.

    Nice find though.

  • http://www.myspace.com/dbricks DBricks

    Last year we had a preety easy early schedule as well. Pro-domintley home games. This year we’ve beat Houston, Suns twice, Detroit, Spurs, and have taken care of the lesser teams for the most part. Eventhough the Celtic games were bad, at least we dont have to play them again. And who are they not beating at this point. So I think a few games we eaisly should of won. Golden state, First game vs houston, Vs the CAVS, and the Bucks all come to mind. we get those 4 were 25-7 at the least. Right now im not saying were championship materal, but im preety impressed with this group thus far

  • foxxy

    LAKER FANS WE MUST STAY POSITIVE…I LIKE WHATS GOING ON !!!! AND IM NOT SURPRISED EITHER!!!!OUR GUYS JUST KEEP PUSHING…WE’LL GET BACK UP THAT MOUNTAIN TOP ALL IN DUE TIME ” PATIENCE” ITS GONNA HAPPEN…AND IT WONT BE FAR AWAY!!!!!

  • http://MySpace RitchQB

    I am surprised by the Lakers this year and how good they are, but I shouldn’t be. Last year the Lakers were on a good role until injuries to Luke and Lamar ruined their rhythm going into the playoffs. The real surprise is Bynum and Farmar and how much they’ve stepped up. I actually believe Kobe when he says that this team is tight and has chemistry. If only we could cut out all those turnovers….

    GO LAKERS!!!

  • LakersFirst

    [Comment ID #21484 Will Be Quoted Here]

    Don’t forget, the Lakers were 42-40 last year because they were plagued with injuries last year. Injuries killed last year. If the Lakers didn’t suffer season altering injuries to LO, Walton, Radman, Kwame, etc, who knows what their record could’ve been. Hopefully the team can remain and get healthy for the remainder of the season.

  • nyla

    We’ll finish strong this year.

    I still think about those 4 games. That would have been nice.

  • DCLAKER

    Lakers never were pretenders.Just had alot of injuries that slowed the process.THE PACK RULEZ!!!

  • http://www.mr47.com mr47

    The good thing is lamar or luke going down wouldn’t be that big of a deal this year. Lamar is an asset, but he’s still stuck where he’s always been stuck….in inconsistency land. We would need lamar against the better teams, but we wouldn’t fall apart like last year. Not when we have bynum (i consider him & fish bigger pieces to our puzzle than lamar), fish, and ariza to pull through for us.

  • ryanfu09

    I agree with everyones thoughts… but if you really think about it… With Kobe and Phil on the same team ANYTHING is possible!… Championship might be to early to speak… but with those two guys on the same team.. I wouldn’t doubt them!

  • Reggie

    I still think we are one player away from being real contenders. Maybe Elton Brand, JO, or Artest. I think we could get one of these players through free-agency this summer. But I don’t think Mitch needs to make any mid-season deals, I want to see how this team does first.

    thats what we needed , to jump from pretenders to contenders, but i think the only way to make a championship is to ship kwame out, please bring artest…… and stay healthy..

  • http://thelakersnation.com Tyler

    hey i think we have a chance for shure. even if we do drop down like we did last year it will only be because of injuries like last year. if we play the suns we already showed them twice we can whup them so well be a second or third round playoff team this year, next year WORLD CHAMPIONS.

  • DCLAKER

    Great minds do think alike in Lakernation.Yes we are ONE MORE PLAYER away from being a 1st,2nd or 3rd seed.JO-EB-Artest-Maggette take your pick cause one of these player(or 2)WILL BE A LAKER,whether this year or next.The team the lakers have now is developing very rapidly though.Adding one more piece would propel this team to that Trophy.Celtics vs.Lakers in the Finals.All I see is KB/AB holding that trophy together while DF says to himself “just like the ol’ days”.THE PACK RULEZ!!!

  • David

    Guys, we are a top 3 team in the west. There are only 2 teams that i am afraid of in a 7 game series. The Spurs, and the hornets. It seems that Chris Paul has career games everytime he plays the Lakers. What he have 20+ assists last game? As for Phoenix? I hope we play them this year.

    Anyway, to be serious contenders what we need is a work horse in the post. A Charles Oakley type player who can defend and rebound. Then we would be serious contenders. The ideal guy would be Carlos Boozer, if only it could happen.

    Let’s just pray for health and keep improving. GO LAKERS!

  • LakersFirst

    [Comment ID #21521 Will Be Quoted Here]

    AB4Sure: I agree with you. How many times did people post about this team not being able to compete and that the Lakers would barely be a .500 team? How many times did the Kobe-only fans rip apart the rest of the team and say “Get this guy some help”. I stood by the Lakers during the dismal 90′s, after the great Magic Johnson was forced to retire and we had to support Sedale Threatt, Elden Campbell, and Cedric Ceballos, but I have no regrets for standing by the Lakers. Standing by the Lakers duiring the down years made the 3 championships in a row just more sweeter. To the true Laker fans, EVEN IF THE LAKERS 0-82, we’ll still support our team!!

  • lakerschamps08

    wow i mean its all great but we have 35 percent chance to finals and spurs have like 9 percent ummm i dont think so….but hey good for us go lakers

  • ab17

    in my opinion we were NEVER pretenders.

    can we trade Kwame Brown for Caron Butler? PLEASE?????? With a cherry on top!

    Good call Mitch, good call!

  • Edwin

    Would all the doubters just shut up! We are contenders. We would’ve been last year had we stayed healthy, and if Bynum had continued his stellar improvement. And we don’t need another All-Star to push us over the hump. Unless them being here doesn’t hinder Bynum’s development. We need another piece, but we need that piece to accept a role. I don’t know if Brand or JO would do that readily.

  • http://lakers.com k0be da 1 andonly

    I ALWAYS THOUGHT WE WERE GONNA HAVE A GOOD SEASON [LAKERS BABY!!!!!!]

  • 24allup inya

    Well u know im the most optimistic person on this blog, but the Lakers are not good enough to get over the hump.At the most i see them going to the Wstern conference finals but they dont quite have what it takes to win a 7 game series against one of the elite teams in the west.I HOPE THAT THIS OFF-SEASON WE CAN PICK UP THE PLAYERS THAT WILL MAKES US CONTENDERS SO THAT WE CAN SPOIL IT FOR BOSTON…

  • Lakers

    why the heck do some people always have to say Lakers are gonna win it next year. When we could win it this year.

    and Lakers should be 27 – 6 by now because of stupid losses to Bucks, Cavs, Warriors, Nets, and Rockets the rest were well deserved losses but oh well this is the 2nd youngest team in the league but they have learned quick

    and another thing I dont think Laker fans know but this team is much better than last year WAY better we improved in both of our positions that we lacked which was center and pg and players are one year wiser and have an extra leader like Derek Fisher

    I mean what an upgrade

    Kwame
    odom
    luke
    kobe
    smush

    2

    Bynum
    odom
    Ariza
    Kobe
    Fish

    and

    we got a much deeper bench and vlade has shown up more games this year than all of last year

    So Lakers are back on top and now are considered elite

    ps: people need to start giving me some props because I already said lakers were elite and that was a week ago so start respecting my basketball IQ

    pss and I did say lakers should win more than 55 games if healthy so mark that to people

    what did the lakers “pretend” to be in the first place? is it just a word to rhyme with contend?

    anyway the lakers are better than last year and will take the pac division from phx any time soon.

  • thomas thomas

    do whatever it takes to be champions, as long as we dont trade lamar bynum, or kobe, those three are good in the lineup, get rid of vlad and kwame no matter what

  • adrian

    we started off this good last year we are coming up to a really hard schedule where we are on the road almost a whole month after that we will see how good we really are

  • lakerboi

    The best thing is that we will be at this level or higher for year to come. We have a good young core line up. THE KEY: We need to re sign Ariza and Turif for around 3-4 years and we will be good.

    If Ariza developes like Bynum and Farmar have by 4th quarter of the year, we have a strong line up:

    KB
    Bynum
    LO
    Ariza
    Fish/Farmar
    plus the depest bench in the league….GO LAKERS

  • MILO

    LaKErs,
    i agree with you Lakers are the best, but i got to say that our year will be next year when Mitch pulls the trigger and get’s Artest here and JO oppts out to come here.Think about it Kwame and Sasha are off the books next year.Mihm and LO can be traded for Artest add a pick to get it done.Vlady we can give away to someone if anyone wants him???This will create more cap space wich will enable the Lakers to sign JO.Now imagine Bynum and JO that = offense rebounds and one off the strongest post defense in the entire league.In addition to that we get Artest who is a good offensive and defensive player and a crazy mu-tha-fu-ck-er as well and along with the best player in the world (Kobe).The Lakers will terrorize the entire league.Now maybe im day- dreaming, but with an agresive FO and some perseverance i really think it can be done hell yeah!!!

  • ab4sure

    [Comment ID #21577 Will Be Quoted Here]

    who’s hatin??? my point was true lakers fans never thought of the lakers at the los angeles fakers. We have pride in our team and don’t depend on one player like you. So now you like Durant??? So you will soon be a Seattle Supersonic Fan??? Well, maybe a Oklahoma City Sonic fan as they will soon move.

  • Jimmy

    nobody saw bynum breaking out as much as he has. Here are my thoughts:

    1. Vlad – He has shown to be able to step up for the bench. Remember, he sprained both of his wrist which limited his shooting capability so that’s why you’ve seen him drop off since the early hot start. He’s also injured right now anyway.

    2. Kwame – The thing about this is, Mihm cannot be relied on to be healthy at this point. You ship Kwame out somehow for Artest? Well you’d better get another big man somehwere. The Kings would probably never deal with us in that magnitude anyway.

    Does a true laker fan become a fan for another team just because their favorite player goes to another team??? You have ripped the FO just about as much as anyone here for not trading Bynum among alot of other things, when are you going to apologize to Mitch??? It turns out he was right and you were wrong. Now your on the Bynum boat and that is cool but you were singing different tunes and basically bailing on the lakers. Sounds like you definitely need to apologize to Mitch.
