Especially if MJ and Pippen were on the team. What's the point of having Gasol with MJ/Pip?

I probably would agree if I already have MJ/Pippen. But I didn't say that. If you had to start a team, and had to choose between the two, Gasol would be the right choice. If I already had Kobe or Jordan only, and I had to choose between the two, Gasol would easily be the right choice. Gasol is still better then Rodman, and would be ranked ahead.

Hello, the Zen Master? I think that team is disciplined.

No they won that because competition wasn't as great as today.

If they Lakers stay relatively healthy they WILL break the Bulls' record and they WILL win back to back.

Were talking about the best record ever in the history of the NBA.. I think it will take a bit more than myself to gain that great record.

All things need to arrive more than right, so that they can do better than a team that held MJ, Rodman, Pippen.

Great point, something few people take into account and something the Lakers have a problem with.

Im wondering, do you believe that they will get over the underchieving hump that they faced last season?

They lost to many mediocre teams last season, and would become very lackadaisical at many points... Im hoping that they have gotten over those issues, but it may not be as simple.

No its not.

Even with the relatively new franchises, they didn't have as many teams filled with new players, new coaches, rebuilding organizations, young players, inexperienced coaches, etc.etc.

Today's NBA climate overall is very shaky, some of it due to the financial crisis and now we have replacement refs which adds another dynamic into the mix.

I think they learned from last season. And to be fair, they were also kinda banged up as well. I remember LO wasn't playing 100%, Bynum was obviously hurt, they had just made the trade with Charlotte etc.etc. I'm expecting them to be more consistent than ever, and Artest will bring in some toughness that they lacked.

But you're right (I agreed with your point in a post above yours) consistency and playing to their opponent's level has been a problem for a long time. Something that wasn't the case with the Bulls.

And people forget that the Bulls were playing hurt as well. I believe Pip and Rodman missed about a dozen games or so (don't know exactly; don't feel like looking it up).

I forgot to add.....

The Lakers were KILLING teams like no other team has in a long time. Their bench alone was beating most team's starting lineups.

When they wanted too and were focused they played some of the most dominant team ball in years. I think now that LO has embraced his 6th man role, a healthy Artest, Bynum, Gasol will be almost unstoppable.

I also think the battle for the pg spot between Brown and Dumbo will really benefit them, and Fish will finally have a stable replacement (that is until the playoffs arrive).

The Zen Master himself recently said he didn't think it could be done in the Western conference because of travel problems.

If all healthy, Lakers have a chance without a doubt. Ron Artest is what the Lakers really need.
