If they aren't winning now, if they do start winning, it'll be too late.
We need to start thinking of life with Howard gone, Pau gone, and pretty much just build a competitive team around Kobe that can help him achieve more records until his retirement. Draft some young athletic talent. Get under the cap....etc.
The lakers at some point are going to need to contemplate whether or not Howard is gonna stay. If he doesn't, they MUST trade him. the trading deadline is only weeks away. They cannot afford to waste such a valuable bargaining piece, especially with Kobe's pig of a contract weighing down their options.
