Default Lakers first month

Here are Lakers games thru the first month on the season:

Tue 31 Phoenix 7:30pm TNT
Wed 1 @ Golden State 7:30pm
Fri 3 Seattle 7:30pm ESPN
Sun 5 @ Seattle 6:00pm
Tue 7 Minnesota 7:30pm
Wed 8 @ Portland 7:00pm
Fri 10 Detroit 7:30pm ESPN
Sun 12 Memphis 6:30pm
Fri 17 Toronto 7:30pm
Sun 19 Chicago 5:00pm ESPN
Tue 21 L.A. Clippers 7:30pm NBATV
Fri 24 @ Utah 6:00pm
Sun 26 New Jersey 6:30pm
Tue 28 Milwaukee 7:30pm
Thu 30 Utah 7:30pm TNT

That is one easy schedule, especailly since most games are at home. If they get off to a bad start, it would be a waste, moreover, harder teams are to follow. I mean, they have a chance to win every single game that first month.

What ya guys think? Is it possible for them to only lose three or four games that first month? The schedule provides an oppurtunity for a great start but could also be a setback...

12-3, maybe a 1 or 2 game +/- and we'd still be pretty good.

Hmm... interesting.. will Kobe be really ready for the beginning of the season, with his surgery? I sure hope so... that will set the tone.

10-5

Default Lakers win season opener....

I'm a little surprised that nobody picked our Lakers to win the season opener against the Suns...obviously Phoenix is a damn good team....and it might be just me....but I do believe the Lakers as a whole and Kobe in particular will have a lot of motivation and the need to make a statement against Phoenix...especially cuz the Suns eliminated them and its a season opener at home...obviously both want a win...i just think the motivation and hunger factor goes to the Lakers...what do you guys think?

Default fast starts

I look for this fast start every year....the team with the best record
at the end of the first month never wins the championship. I'd much
prefer to be .500 at that point and have the team understanding
they have much to improve upon. They will work harder and go further!

Yes of course, he's already walking around without a brace or anything. There's still 2 months until training camp and another month after that until the season starts, he'll be fine.

With ben wallace gone and our first game against the pistons will be at home I think it will be a win. Because now rasheed has to try and do something different and it might take detroit a while to get used to their new system.

Especially since they wont be good defensively anything can happen.

We might lose @ seattle just because Guys like ray allen always kill us.

But with Kobe gaurding him that might change too :)

13-2 to start and everyone will be talking, prematurely, about the re-emergence of the LA Lakers.

With Radman giving us about a 12 pt boost hopefully we can win close games.
