^well, thats a good point but an injury free season is a good Xfactor in any year on most teams.
For me, its Kwame. Kwame will be our guy to stop ppl like duncan,yao,brand,amare, etc...if you can control the paint on the defensive end, its will disrupt alot of your opponents strategy. and Kwame is our anchor in that category. moreoever, if kwame could just hold onto the ball and dunk it, oh man, look out. kobe and odom causing matchup problems like hell, and vladrad as a three point threat, kwame has to step up and control the paint. if that happens, lakers are one dangerous team. kwame has been bustin his ass all summer and is ready to go which is a great sign.
Actually, I think people often overlook injuries as a factor that can impact a team during the course of a season.
I'll agree with that. hopefully we're all healthy. btw,anyone think kobe will be better off right away this season because he got that surgery or do you think the procedure itself will have a negative effect in the beginning?
Its me again and I think the x-factor for this year is going to be the one the only Sasha Vujacic. He is going to tear it up he will take over Kobe's job and be the starting Shooting Guard for the Lakers. Also kobe will never gain it back and Sasha will be a 13 time all star. Finally, Kobe should just retire because Sasha is going to be the first one to 110 points in one game, and he will be number one on the 50 all times greatest's players list.
I do not have any intentions on this forum. I am stating my opinion. IT IS AMERICA THAT LAST I CHECKED. RIGHT? According to our first ammendment, we have the freedom of speech. Oh I do not care if you quote me. You are doing what you believe.
Love and God Bless,
This isnt america son, this is LAKER LAND.
It's supposed to be drug and smoking free (sorry Mariodeathgrip )
and if you wanna go Talk about God go to a church's forum because this forum is strictly basketball.
Nothign against God, he made me, but not here man ok...seriously! the first 2 posts were funny but this stuff gets old really fast.
Anti-shaq, is it too much to ask that you respect this forum and to avoid making attacks on posters. You can bash the Lakers all you want but please present an arguement rather than a trashy one line post.
