Just curious which team do you think will pull it off? Gs with klay? Hou? Someone else? I mean it’s possible but you can’t just cover your bases by not predicting who would beat them in 5.

The Clippers with or without Kawhi can take this team to 7.
The Spurs team is still a solid team.
Thunder, Jazz, Rockets are all continuity based teams that can get better.


GS is injured so I have doubts.

Trailblazers would lose to the Lakers and Nuggets too.


But this Lakers team is not as good as people think they will be.

AD is a great numbers/stat padder, not great in the playoffs.

I like at least 5 teams better than the Lakers in the WCF.

Better does not mean winning in 5 however. I donít think so for clips without kawhi, spurs unless they see major breakout from Murray or okc because they have a very hard time improving their roster.

Without Kawhi AND with a healthy Klay and KD, they took the Warriors to 6. If KD doesn't score like 60 in one of those games, they take the Warriors to 7. This is WITHOUT a star player.

Regardless, Lakers are not the front-runner as some would believe. They would have issues with petty teams like even the T-Blazers or Spurs.

OKC vs. them in 7 is easy money for OKC.

Kawhi's Clippers could beat the Lakers for sure. Off chance Blazers could with the squad fully healthy this time around.

I'd say OKC on paper looks strong but Westbrook just gets caught up in feelings during the playoffs and sabotages his team.

I'm not even sure these Lakers as currently constructed can get by the Jazz.

How is that sad? Moving from not making the playoffs to losing in the WCF the next year and be a bad thing?
