Default Has there ever been a starting lineup as flawlessly built as the current lakers?

Dangerous outside shooting with best shooting point guard in the history of the nba and most unstoppable midrange shooter the game has ever seen, combined with gasol improved 3 point game and pure midrange and MWPs hotstreaks.

Dominant inside game with the most dynamic front court in the nba when motivated. Best offensive centre in the nba in bynum and top 5 pf in gasol when he tries and the strongest post up 3 in MWP.

Lockdown perimeter defense with perennial all first team defender kobe, one of the best charge takers in the league in nash and the only player with maybe the exception of melo that lebron wouldnt be able to beat on brute strength.

Best rim protection in the league with the huge wingspans of teh twin towers, not a single easy layup will be give against this starting line up.

I expect this laker starting lineup to outscore the opposing team sans maybe okc and the heat by double digits in the first quarter of every game, if the lakers can get the bench to even a mediocore status, i think anyone in their right mind would have them as the favorites for the nba championship, even against the improved heat.

There's nothing flawless about their starting lineup. Spacing is meh. And the Lakers suck at defending screen and roll.

I still think OKC is the better team. Russy is going to destroy Nash every single time. If they put Kobe on him, good luck defending Harden then. Durant is going to get his against anyone.. They have a great post defender in Perk to put on Bynum and Ibaka can guard Pau alright I guess.

I agree. I think OKC in 6. Another year of growth and maturity for OKC will do wonders for them. I see them winning the West again.

I don't see how Nash and Kobe are going to "click" as well as everyone thinks either. It's going to be interesting to see.

So, in all but 5 or 6 games, you think the Lakers starting lineup will be at least +10 in EVERY first quarter this year? What the hell are you smoking?

They're extremely weak in the PnR game and in transition.. and OKC and Miami are two teams that dominate in those areas.
