Re: who else is part of the "lakers will dominate the regular season and playoffs" club
I think assuming Dwight is going to be healthy and normal Dwight is jumping the gun. He had some major surgery on his back, might not be ready for opening night. He will have to work his way back to fitness plus backs are delicate, he could be out there thinking "god, I hope no one smashes into my back", which will dim his pretty low intensity.
Plus Dwight seems too much of a goofball to handle being a Laker. Having the bullseye on your back because you're a Laker. People wanting to beat you because you're a Laker. Having to live up to the standards of Mikan, Wilt, Kareem and Shaq. Living with Kobe and his win at all costs mentality.
PAINT YOUR FACE CLOWN!
