    Lakers just picked up Michael Beasley.. Not sure if that is a good thing or not? Never really liked his game all that much..

    If HIV+ Magic Johnson still has anything to do with the organization, presumably they'll be "seeded" in his hotel room.....

    My thoughts exactly.. Beasley kinda sucks...

    Decent mid range shooter that's about it.. Lacks in defensive intensity, no low post game, and he often falls in love with 3's when left open which he's simply not that good at...

    It depends on injuries. The competition in the west is much better than the east also.

    With this team it's gonna be a long year in the West.

    They will have to pick up another top starter to be better than a 6 seed.

    Assume? More like a foregone conclusion bud. Greatest player to ever step on the hardwood playing under the bright lights of Hollwood with a top tier supporting cast = Championship. Hell, if Laker miss the playoffs with Lebron then I'll eat my shoe laces on youtube and upload the video. Already have Lakers to win the West for $2000.

    He will say he is hurt mid way thru the season and sit out all second half and wait till he gets better players next year. That is if anybody decides they want to play with his bitch ass

    Everyone forget how well the young lakers play, just have to find the right rotations with the vets and they are easily top 5 seed. 50+ wins for sure

    Lakers should make the playoffs, but doubt they crack top 5.

    I will be shocked if they win more games than the Warriors, Rockets, Pelicans or Jazz. The Wolves, Spurs, Blazers, Thunder and Nuggets don't look great, but it seems likely at least one of those squads finds a way to win a game or two more than the Lakers.

    If LeBron gets hurt (assuming that is possible), top 5 is out of the question.

    Take the +150

    Lebron definitely thinks he’s invincible- Father Time is undeafeted - I think lakers will be a 2-3 seed - Ingram will have a breakout year

    They won 35 games last year with a roster consisting of kids.

    Those kids have matured, and now they're going to play with the best player in basketball. You know, an off-season acquisition you somehow forgot to mention.

    I project them to be about a four seed.

    They also lost quite a few games with starters being injured. I feel like Houston regressed a bit, Portland is stale, San Antonio is a mess, Utah isn't sneaking up on anyone this year, and all the Lakers have done is get better, albeit with some strange additions sans the LeBron signing.

    He leads them to the 3 or 4 seed. The roster might look quite different come trade deadline. If any of the young kids or recent signings don’t buy into putting in the work, they will be playing elsewhere.

    This is going to be great watching the diva LeBron with the clowns show family. After about 10 games LeBron will be trying to pretend he is a GM again. By year two the roster will be full of sorry ass over the hill LeBron friends just like Cleveland so we can hear all about how he doesn't have talent around him even though it will once again be his fault. Only problem is this time he doesn't have the luxury of playing in the D league east to look like a hero.
