Re: who else is part of the "lakers will dominate the regular season and playoffs" club
If Kobe plays like he did in 2010, there's no way they lose against the Heat with healthy Howard. As long as Nash, Pau, and Artest play their usual way, and the bench at least defends with energy and control they will be unbeatable.
A lot of ifs but Kobe, Nash, Dwight, Gasol, Artest are better than any top starting 5. If only Grant Hill had come to the Lakers, and Jamison was a few years younger, then the Lakers would be unreal.. on paper.
The coach is Mike Brown after all.
