The team is definitely better than it was last year. Last years team should have been up 3-1 on OKC, and that's a team that went to the finals. While the Lakers aren't the favorites, they have a chance now. If they manage to pull off that Howard deal they would be the favorites. Although, since that's a trade in the rumors I'm not sure it will happen. Rumored Lakers trades never happen, lol. They're fun to speculate about though.
