Agree about bench and cohesion. But James/Bosh/Wade were all closer to 30 than 40. The Lakers are supposedly built to win now, not in even a year or two. Remember that Howard is a FA after this season. Though the Lakers rarely lose a player they want to keep, there will be plenty of suitors. If he doesn't like the feel in LA...and I don't see him being a Jackson kind of guy...he'll be gone.
