If the Lakers get Bosh, resign Kobe and Pau to reasonable contracts, and sign Deng I could see them being a legit contender for one or two more seasons.
That's like the absolute best offseason I could see the Lakers having. I don't see Lebron, Melo, or George coming.
That is much more reasonable and realistic.
