We might even see 3 new West playoff teams instead of 2.

 

Gasp- 4 if you think both Utah and Clips fall dramatically

Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

I don't see them dropping off that drastic. I see the clips being 7th but its the clips so they could be worse lol

Wolves not winning 50 games. Even if KAT takes a leap....that team isn't built for this conference.

We can sneak about 35 wins depending on how efficient our shooters are

Jazz grizzlies mavs and pelicans are not that better than the Lakers

 

Jazz - Loss George Hill and Gordon Hayward.  There key players are now Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors.  They play team basketball but certainly lost two key starters whom were a key part to their offense.

(Therefore, I agree that the Lakers may potentially end up with a better record then them)

 

Mavericks - With a core of DSJ, Wes Matthews, Harrison Barnes, Dirk, and Noel, I can see them doing quite well.

(Talent wise and experience wise, I give them the advantage over us)

 

Pelicans - Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins are better than any combination of players currently on our roster.  Together they may have issues as they didn't seem to find a rhythm with one another last year.

(Regardless, that team alongside Jrue Holiday is still very solid, I give them the edge over us as well)

 

Grizzlies - Loss ZBo but Conley, Marc, and a healthy Parsons is still decent, I see them falling off but not sure how far.

(Tough call on this one)

 

Overall, while the West did get stronger, there are still a handful of middle of the pack teams that loss key contributors thus making the bottom 3 seeds a very tough call.  I don't think the Lakers have a good shot at the playoffs, but It's certainly not impossible.

Wonder if Pels make a mid season trade of Boogie if out of playoff pic?

Why wouldnt they?

 

Mavs might intentionally tank.

(Scratching my head at Dirk's willing discount...though he probably only plays 50 games as he breaks down)

 

Jazz are falling out most likely. Are they counting on Jingles?

Hood may be their best player this season.

 

I'm not sure how many games Lakers win but position wise espn seems close.

Cant see them higher than 11th tbh

I can see us winning 37-38 wins. I think Lonzo will unlock many of our 3rd quarter offensive struggles. The tempo of the game will favor us.

33 is a fair prediction.  A 7 win improvement is likely.

 

I'd say they'll go 31-51.

I'll go with 35-38. Pretty easily actually.

Team improved +9 games from 2015 to 2016. Not out of the question to expect similar results this season with a roster that is actually much improved.

The West has improved but so have the Lakers. I think we can keep up with anyone who isn't SAS, HOU, OKC, or GSW. MIN might be on that level...not sure yet.

The gap isn't as big as it was in year's past.

If Randle plays small ball 5 with a lineup of Kuzma or Nance at the 4, this team will be very fast...PHO Suns 2003 fast.  That's made to win a lot of games in the Regular season but not a lot in the playoffs.  That's why I think we should double whatever improvement the stats say we should have...they say 7 wins, I say 14 or 15 win improvement IF things go the way I think they will.
