I think the Lakers would have the same problems as they did last season with respect to getting to a true title, which is they are soft in the middle when it comes to a championship series. Bynum fixes that, Marion does not.
Thats just my opinion and I am sure others differ.
Wow, that's exactly the point I was going to make
I do still have the Bynum over Danny Granger thing in the back of my head, I wanted Granger in the draft.....but it's a bit of the same point made above, we need a strong middle. I think (HOPE) this will be Bynum's year.
