Re: Why the Lakers window has slammed shut:
Kobe will prob bounce back next season. The dude is fighting through multiple injuries and has been in the finals for the last 3 season. He said he knows he can take it to another level and will work at it this offseason, which he hasn't been able to do because of injuries.
Lakers can still be competitive. All they need is a reliable shooter on offense and pick up and defensive coach to settle their pick n roll defense dileama.
