Default Does anybody really think Lakers will lose before the finals?

Even though they are 2-2, surely people realise this is just the typical Lakers, right?

If they get past NO (not a given) I could see OKC taking them (Westbrook doesn't normally chuck as bad as he did last game) and Dallas as well, although I have less faith in Dallas.

The Thunder are a legitimate threat.

A healthy Lakers team should beat everybody in the West.

OKC Thunder and Portland Trailblazers have the best chance at beating the Lakers.

Btw what's up with the Dallas-Portland officating?

I agree, Mavs and OKC are the only threat for the Lakers in the West.

For regular season wins, sure. For playoff series, yeah, you might be alone on that one. I can't see Dirk + chucker Terry and other borderline serviceable players getting passed this Lakers squad.

The Mavs have bigs, Dirk usually embarrasses Gasol, nice guard rotation, and Marion can defend Kobe pretty well.

Not saying the Mavs will win but it should be interesting.

It's not at all the "typical Lakers" to be 2-2 against a weak injury riddled team like New Orleans in the first round. Even if they win this series (which as someone said, is not a given) it still leaves a lot of questions. Then they will have to likely take out Dallas and OKC en route, which is even less of a given than their current situation.

LOL @ this guy

They match-up better than any team In the West agianst the Lakers.

They got a good big front court, just like the Lakers.
They got a better bench.
The Lakers play horrible in the Rose Garden.
Kobe isn't the same Kobe
LaMarcus Aldridge will own Gasol
Andre Miller will make Fisher wished he retired

I doubt the refs/David Stern will allow it thou.
