As much as I loathe the Lakers and love to see them struggle, I'm believing that they will get it together before it's all said and done.
DH will get healthy, Pau will come back from his concussion, and they will all form some semblance of chemistry.
They are somewhat behind in the standings, but imagine the Lakers, as a 7th or 8th seed - BUT - playing with some chemistry?
They could be perhaps the most dangerous lower-seeded team since...The Boston Celtics 11-12.
As much as I can't stand them I can't count them out just yet.
I guess I am still holding out hope for one last grudge match with them...give them some payback for 09-10 finals. I'd LOVE that.
