Default Looks like the Lakers are contenders once again

down 14, howard with 5 fouls, kobe with 5 in the 4th and they find a way to win. Warriors are done now.... It sucks. Lee won't be an all star. Landry and Jack will be gone next year. I'm getting ready for another 10 bad years of warriors b-ball and also the lakers might win it this year

A Kobe led team is always in contention.

I'm optimistic but I am not getting my hopes up, Lakers barely beat a bad team. It's only the Warriors.

The real test remains to be seen. It's not very satisfying when David Lee has a good game against them.

I wouldnt go so far as to say they're "contenders" again, but if they can build on this, and continue to gain a cohesive unit out there, control the tempo, get accustomed to one another, and try to go the rest of the way with no more major injuries, they have a nice shot.


However, they have a LOT of work ahead of them.

A new era has begun. Kobe finally is playing with someone he trusts in big moments, like in the days of Fisher.

4 wins in a row and counting

And on the reverse side if they win a bunch in a row they will be 10 games over .500.

Lakers are no where near contenders, yet.

Their defense is abysmal and it was just one game. For all we know Steve Nash may go 1-10 the next game and Lakers lose by 20. Beating the Golden State Warriors doesn't mean you're a contender.

I like it better when the Lakers are losing because than the retard Laker fans go away.

Some are actually good, most just shit awful.

Probably 5th or 6th seed.. but they seem better when Kobe is being benched.. and Kobe is the real coach and leader of the team.. so.. yeah..

One might think you'd just started watching basketball and doing mathematics today.

Emotional jolt of Nash return is what won that game for the Lakers. Warriors eased up is another reason. Warriors looked real good to me.
Although, what the heck was up with the referees? something like 15 whistles in the first quarter, several of them seemed cheeze.

You went all the way from Warriors gonna win a bunch of games and posting like 50 David Lee MVP threads on ISH to... they are done for the season?

You'd never make it where I'm living right now - T Wolves have had 9 players significant injuries so far this year including Budinger out for months, Rubio out for months, Brandon Roy out for months/gone, Josh Howard gone, Malcolm Lee out for months/gone, Pekovic ankle, Love broken hand.................... I mean you need to see the bright side my friend!
