    Yes. This lineup is just sick. Except for World Peace, it is a juggernaut of a lineup. Them and the Thunder will most likely go 1-2 in the West, and that’ll be an amazing rivalry.

    The Lakers should be the favorites on paper. Thank you for the trade that brings Bynum to my Sixers. The biggest test for Lakers is how they recover from inuries to their older starting lineup.

    the Lakers just got tougher and here’s why….for get the fact that steve nash can’t play defense but now unlike the previous laker guards the opposing teams guards such as, westbrook, chris paul now have to play nash on the perimeter because he is an amazing shooter and money from the line…..people say D howard doesn’t have and offensive game like Bynum well when you play with an elite guard like Nash he is going to give you the ball in your sweet spot where you can score at will…..Kobe, Jamison and gasol have never played with a guard like nash and he will run the offense…..ummmmm steve nash has never played with anyone as good as Howard, kobe and Gasol so things will be easy for him and take a load off of him being a scorer and that means Nash could average as much as 14 assists……people are so concerned about the age of kobe, Nash and the back of howard….but playing with each other now will take a load off of everybody and can you imagine the pick and roll with the most skilled big in the game…(Gasol)!!!!! Last time Kobe played with a big man (shaq) lets just say 4 straight finals trips and 3 rings is not bad!!!
