I think that IF THIS TEAM CAN CONTINUE to play together and play well and build and you add kobe that IS STILL 80% as good as he was last year and trusts his teammates and nash is healthy and pau is healthy (pau is better without dwight)
this team will surprise people and hit the playoffs
The only people who will be surprised, are the ones who just don't like the Lakers. We seen this same scenario In 06 & 07, "the Lakers suck, they'll miss the playoffs and finish 12th. Nothing but scrubs on that team."
This team, is actually better. Good mix of vets with young, fast, athletic guys who will hustle night in and night out.
