This team has no time to gel, sucks.

-From those 3 teams you listed, Bynum isn't required against NO(assuming that NO doesn't set franchise records in those games-I.E. Peja with 11-12 3pts or Paul with 20+ assists like that one time they beat us, etc). If NO is having a normal game, we can take them down without Bynum.
-Utah we could use Bynum but we still play pretty good against them usually so as long as we got healthy Gasol, I think we would be fine. Kobe usually plays pretty good against Utah also.
-SA is a problem - we NEED bynum or I don't see us beating them. Hopefully we don't meet them in playoffs until much later or some other team takes them down.

P.S. We always had trouble against Mavs. Always. It is just one of those teams that we have trouble beating. Kobe usually plays really good against Mavs but the rest of the team rarely did. Just look at Celtics/Wizards. Celtics have a VERY hard time against Wizards and Wizards aren't even a top 4 team in the east.

Bummer!

I keep on wondering if we have a competent medical staff as of lately?

Why is it other team can get their guys (i.e. Phoenix figured out some problem to treat Shaq 2 hr daily so he can play; Dallas got Dirk back). For ours, it usually takes way longer than anticipated.

I'm saying this because not all doctors are at same skill, IQ, or taught same thing at the same level. Not all doctors make right decision, treatment, or diagnosis also. Usually they should be, but not always.

I dont think that our medical staff is incompetent, I think they just set incorrect return dates to keep fandom at bay for a bit.

Yep. Seeing Dirk back out there playing after 10 days when Gasol was out for THREE weeks with pretty much the same injury was a real eye opener.

But the Lakers still have Kobe and in Dallas Dirk is the man.
