Re: Reggie Miller predicts the Lakers will Challenge 96 Bulls
Lakers challenging the Bulls because one overrated player is going to be healthy and because of ONE offseason acquisition?
Ariza was more important to the Lakers than anyone allows themselves to believe. He will be missed, and IMO, the Lakers will win FEWER games this season in part due to his absence. Sure, the Lakers will outmatch most teams with their starters...but how far will that really get you? It's not always going to be enough. So many other teams got better this offseason as well, so it is definitely not going to be a cake walk.
