Los Angeles Lakers Preview

It is looking more imminent that Kobe will be traded, and soon. The will obviously make this preview null and void, which is why it will be so short. Well, that and the fact that I can’t stand Kobe and the Lakers. I do like Lamar Odom and I think the Lakers as a team are better off when he is running the offense instead of Kobe, but that’s just my biased opinion.

Projected starting lineup with last year’s stats:
Stats follow this format – Points, Rebounds, Assists, Steals, Blocks, FG percentage & Minutes

PG – Derek Fisher
10.1 – 1.8 – 3.3 – 1.01 – 0.07 – 38% – 28 min

SG – Kobe Bryant
31.6 – 5.7 – 5.4 – 1.44 – 0.47 – 46 5 – 41 min

SF – Luke Walton
11.4 – 5 – 4.3 – 1 – 0.35 – 47% – 33 min

PF – Lamar Odom
15.9 – 9.8 – 4.8 – 0.95 – 0.57 – 47% – 39 min

C – Chris Mihm
Missed all of last year, what’s that say about Bynum’s offseason progress?

Key Bench Players

Jordan Farmar
Maurice Evans
Vladimir Radmonovic
Ronny Turiaf
Brian Cook
Andrew Bynum
Kwame Brown

Truly, there is not much hope for this team. I don’t like Kobe at all, but he is right about the Lakers not being able to put any talent around him to make them contenders. I mean, Lamar Odom is great at what he does, and he would do better if Kobe understood team play a little better, but after Odom the rest of the team sucks ass. There is no way they make the playoffs this year as currently constructed, which is why Kobe is definitely getting traded.
