Just for funsies, what do you think the Lakers 07-08 record will be? Sound-off in the comments!
HOOPSWORLD.COM: The schedule for 2007/8 NBA Season was finally released on Thursday. The Los Angeles Lakers have an interesting to-do list with a particularly brutal February. Considering Kobe Bryant’s still festering trade demand, it’s difficult to predict how the season will pan out.
Will the roster be the same on opening night as it is in early August? Will players like Lamar Odom and Andrew Bynum be able to work alongside Bryant as if nothing was said? How will that team with such a shaky foundation handle adversity?
There are no easy answers for the Lakers. They appear to be a good team but not a great team. For the fans who are used to more than a round or two of playoffs each year, that’s just not enough.
But the schedule remains . . .
A challenging start to the season with the opener in LA against the Houston Rockets. The Lakers will later face the San Antonio Spurs and Rockets (back-to-back). They’ll get Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics on November 23rd. Other difficult games include visits to the Phoenix Suns and Utah Jazz.
