Default Laker will be 8th regardless of how they play

Because Utah's upcoming schedule is ridiculous

vs. Grizzlies
vs. Knicks
@ Rockets
@ Spurs
@ Dallas
vs. 76ers

vs. Suns
@ Trailblazers
vs. Nets
vs. Trailblazers
vs. Nuggets

vs. Hornets
@ Warriors
vs. Thunder
vs. Grizzlies

@ Timberwolves
@ Grizzlies

The bolded are expected losses. There's no way Utah can catch up to the Lakers, with or without Kobe. Because Utah is winning max 3 out of their 17 games.

Walking versus running and cutting at full speed are two different things.

Top 5 pick in a weak draft?

If they play well, in the middle there they could get a nice streak going from the Sixers, even possibly down to when they lose to the Warriors. Denver would be a tough game.

Not if DAL and POR keep winning - they're only 1 and 2 games (lost) behind LAL.

For Utah, 10 games are at home and 7 away. UTA's a different team at home. Even OKC and SAS lose at UTA.
