    hard to disagree with, but still depressing.

  • kingkb

    it puts us as the 8th seat in the western coference.. not to good

  • lakerfan81

    Not sure if Miami is better (or as good) as the Lakers. So I wouuld move them up one. Maybe a tie with Denver and GS. I think Denver is in the same place LA is they are as good as their defense and neither one is a very good defensive team.

    hahaha lol voted by fans as u can see we all r fans but its looks like we r wrong bout a lot of things and mostly trades sooo wer 13 hah more like 10 or 11th but does this mean we get 13 overall pick in the draft NOOOOO… so this rank means nothing and umm suns #1 they suck…. go lakers

    I think the ranking is fairly accurate, Spurs should be on top though. As for the Lakers, we should be above Golden State and below the Nuggets. We’re better than the Warriors and as for Denver, theyre a much better team than us, AI-Melo-JRSmith-Hilario-Camby just screams better. That leaves us a 7th or 8th seed in the West, which means we’ll probable meet the Spurs or Suns, which is another likely first round exit. Maybe, Lamar will finally become a good second option and everyone gels together and start playing consistently, but then again thats a huge maybe.

  • PHANTOM

    i think barring injuries and if bynum is consistant we could move in the top 5…

    We are the 4th best team in the West. Mark my words the Lakers will be the 4th seed in the west. I’ll even gaurantee that we will have a better record than the Spurs. I’m not saying that we’re better than the Spurs, I’m just saying that we will have a better record, which will put us in the 3RD seed in the West. I gaurantee it!!!!
