You just can't do much once LA decides to D up. They remind me of the 07-08 Celtics. Very inconsistent offensively despite being VERY talented, but they can always win games on the other end of the court. That's why you still have to consider them favorites for the title.
They have ridiculous size/length at every position, and the Twin Towers + Odom take up a lot of space. Then add Artest and Kobe and it's a wrecking crew defensively. Get rid of their size and they wouldn't be great defensively, however.
