Looking at it they really only have Matt Bonner and Dejuan Blair to back up McDyess right now. The Lakers have way more front court depth than that. McDyess is still really good but he is getting up there in age. If they are going to make him play a bunch of minutes he might not have any gas left in the tank for the playoffs. To ask a rookie to step up for an entire season is quite a bit too. I think Blair is going to be a steal for them but he is undersized, especially when facing a front line like LA's or Portland's. They will be a really good team but this is certainly a weakness.
pops is pretty good a pacing the team through the season, he understands that making the playoffs healthy is the most important thing for a team.. he has certainly seen upclose what happens despite his best intentions of limping into the playoffs

I can't for the regular season to begin! I wasn't going to re-new NBA League Pass this year (because of college). It's safe to say that I've changed my mind.
