Lakers could beat every team on that list in a 7 game series (including Golden state)

This Lakers team is 10x better than that garbage LeBron dragged to the finals last year and now he's in the much weaker softer Western conference getting to the finals should be very achievable if Lakers stay healthy and the refs don't interfere like last years finals.

i'd say the lakers without lebron are about on par with the cavs minus lebron ... maybe a bit better


only problem is the cavs overachieved last year due to


1. kyrie/hayward being hurt and game 7 being rigged ( free trips to the line on touch fouls at the very end after tatums big dunk and 3 )

2. probly shouldn't have even made it past indiana in round 1 and got rigged a victory in game 7 off some shady flopping calls

3. the raptors having defrozan laying down for lebron a 3rd straight time



and me predicting that the cavs will be the 5th best team in the east this year doesn't mean the lakers are automatically in the playoffs out west


since theres 10 teams in the west that would bump the cavs down a spot if they were out east


so even though the lakers are maybe a fraction better of a supporting cast. it really doesn't mean jack shit

Yeah you have seriously been smoking crack. Lebron has brought his "talents" over to the much more difficult Western conference. He'll be lucky to make it to the WC Semi's

They'd beat Phoenix, Minnesota and MAYBE Portland and get destroyed by every other team on that list

LeBron doesn't lose to DeRozan.

The OP to Laker post ratio is very high.

Note: He's not a Lakers fan anymore.
