Default Are these Lakers better then last years?

I was having this argument earlier today, and I think this years team is quite easily better. Kobe has played better when healthy (in the playoffs and early in the season) Bynum hasn't sucked like last year, Artest is considerably better then Ariza. They did have a worse record, but that can mostly be contributed to Kobe and Pau's injuries. Anyone else agree that this team is quite a bit better and might be one of the ten best teams ever?

No. The west is just a lot worse. Overrated, with a bunch of soft teams. The lakers are the cream of the crop out west.

i don't think so. but this year's Lakers do have less competition to deal with so in return, they have more success winning games.

I'm not saying this because they've been dominating in the playoffs, actually I think they were playing their best ball in the beggining of the season after Gasol came back. Kobe and Bynum were both 100% and that made a pretty big difference.

Yeah, the competition this year is much easier. I am so glad we didn't face the Mavs & the Nuggets this postseason, they would have given us trouble.

No. The playoff teams they've faced are just too easy.

Funny how all the haters jump on LA's opponent's bandwagon before each series and then once LA promptly dismantles em, suddenly it was an easy matchup and the West sucks.

The Lakers own the Suns and Jazz the past few years and the Thunder were wide eyed kids. They haven't been tested yet. We'll see how good they are in the Finals.
