Re: State of the Western Conference
It depends on how Gasol and Bryant will play during the rest of the season through the play offs and when Bynum returns. Lamar, Fisher and the rest of the bench has to play very well also, cut down on the turn overs (which have been big for the Lakers), move the ball well (which they have improved a lot in) and
From what I heard, Gasol hasn't been playing too well because of a recent cold and a bad back, plus the long hard road game the Lakers are enduring right now. Once he's 100 percent and comes back ready to play, I truly think he's going to be like Dirk Nowitzki but with a much better post game and is going to a deciding factor for the Lakers to win soe play off games this year.
