Re: Ron Artest guarantees lakers champ in 2012
its hard to say simply because the talent is still there, but we don't know how it will work out with our new head coach, mike brown. I think the coaching change was definitely necessary and the correct step towards remaining a contender. I felt that although Phil was a great, he was becoming more predictable as he got older and that other teams started figuring us out a bit more each time they played us.
So I think the coaching will either make us or break us.
