Tony Parker has "spur" heel problem and may sit out for a long while. With dissin words from Popabiatch, I hope the Lakers get even with Mr. pop-a-biatch on the next game.

The ONLY team that makes me kind-of worry is the Suns:

"Slow & Aging" Shaq vs. "A New Teammate & Injury Recovering" Bynum.
Stoudemire vs. Gasol
Hill vs. Odom
Nash vs. Fisher/Farmar
Diaw/Barbosa vs. Byrant

I think it's all going to come down to "the bench" players.

IT SHOULD BE VERY INTERESTING!!!!

We may not even face the Suns in the Playoffs...And i'll reserve predictions until bynum and ariza are back. And everyone talks about how good Bynum will be because of Gasol, but think it's the opposite. With bynum back, gasol is going to go nuts on offense avg about 20-25ppg

I really hope we do not meet the Suns in the playoffs.
I expect Shaq to gell very nicely with the Suns. Nash is very savvy...he will incorporate Shaq smoothly. Also, Amare has a nice little 12-15 foot jumper, so he should do very well beside Shaq.
And, of course, Shaq is ALL ABOUT the playoffs. That's when he actually gives 100% effort.

Lakers will lose to the Suns in the 1st or 2nd round of the playoffs. Shaq will bring his A game and will be motivated to beat the Lakers. He does not want to let Kobe get a title.

I hope I'm wrong...

If this turns out to be the one time you're right, I'm setting your dog on fire.
