The reason I say that is because of our depth, Bynum's continuos progress and if Odom can be this aggressive off the bench for us, I really don't see a team in this league beating us. He is a completely different basketball since Drew went down.
This isn't the same Laker team that made the NBA finals last season.
Well said, I'm just pointing out that it's a bit early to be predicting any dynasties, considering the league will have an Extreme Makeover! in 2010.. if anything the Celtics are positioned to win 3 of 5 or something like that.. I question Kobe's age moving forward, and I'm not going to jump on the Lamar Odom bandwagon anytime ever, since it broke down on the Oregon Trail when I was in 3rd grade. Seriously. I'm also watching the Lakers crush my Suns, and that makes me ornery.
