Re: Lakers off season thread
The Nets also had a ton of injuries last year. They wouldn't have made the playoffs but they would have had a much better record, so I definitely think he can win in Brooklyn. With Williams, Wallace, and Howard they would be right there with Miami and Chicago. I don't think they could make it past them in a seven game series though, so that's the part that doesn't make sense. LA with Howard + the other tweaks they make would be the favorite to win it. Wouldn't it be cheaper for Howard to live in LA than NY too??? Not to mention the weather is better out here. Does anybody think that Prokhorov might be offering these guys something "outside" of an NBA contract? Maybe while they're vacationing in Russia he slips them some side cash, etc?
