According to his twitter Howard wants to come back next year. This season's roster was the most expensive mistake ever if you ask me. Such high hopes, too...

Going in, I thought about the failed year they brought in Karl Malone and Gary Payton. It was the same thing...too old. By bringing Nash (who sat more than he played) was not worth it. Howard has (or had) commanding skills. This year he looked WEAK. He's in his prime! And dare I say...I'd rather have Marc Gasol than Pau right now.

Man I've been over Pau for the last two seasons - the guy just runs out of gas!

I really had high "let's bring it back to the Shaq, Kobe, Fox, Fisher days" hopes with this lineup, but we stumbled out of the gate and just kept stumbling. The Mike Brown debacle didn't help either.

Nash was one of my favorites in the league back on the Suns, but I think he might just be getting too old...

I'm late commenting on the 1st Round Series that ended last week, but if Kobe wasn't injured, the Spurs would not have "Walis, Walis" them (as Jalen Rose said). The Lakers just simply didn't have team chemistry all season. At first, when I saw that they had signed Nash and Howard, I was thinking that this team was "stacked"!! But, my, how the wheels fell off so quickly! At least the 04 Team made it all the way to the Finals. Definitely time for L.A. to start rebuilding....In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the Playoffs!

rj, I was excited too...then I remembered how old Nash was. Game two he broke his leg, and wasn't the same since. Pau went out with a foot problem. Metta went out with a knee. Howard went out with a shoulder. They all come back, and Kobe ruptures his achilles. What a nightmare season. I'm glad they limped into the playoffs, but that sweep wasn't good. And...the Clippers are out now too. What will we do in SoCal?

it just goes to show you can't predict what will happen. when they brought in Nash and Howard everyone reacted like they were going to win a title or get to the Finals, but buying high priced veterans doesn't guarantee anything.

Lakers 116/Clippers 103...1-0. Bench played phenomenal ball tonight. Great team effort with Kobe out.

I missed the Heat game...school boooooo! I'm excited the season has started. This is the first time, in a loooong time, that I didn't watch much pre-season. 1-0 but 81 more to go!

I'm gonna try and keep this updated, but it's pretty tough with work and school.
Warriors 125/Lakers 94...1-1. That was a beatdown! Couple of starters need to up their production (Gasol/Young)...Nash was out.

I think Gasol took it easy this summer, so health-wise should be ok. He's getting a little old now, and really I would take Marc over Pau. Maybe a trade back for the brothers? They were originally traded for each other back in 2007. LoL!

Lakers 85/Spurs 91...1-2. Had a dull spot there 2nd-mid 4th qtr. Lakers have to find consistency, and trust from their young players. Gasol is not a force inside, and Kaman has to step up.

Lakers 105/Hawks 103...2-2. Solid game by Young, Henry, Gasol, Nash, and Kaman. Gotta tighten up the defense though. Just hold the fort down til Mamba comes back.

Mavericks 123/Lakers 104…2-3. Just like last year, couldn't win on the road. 5 players in double figures, but the defense can't stop anybody. They have to do more than just try to hold on for Kobe to come back. @ Houston Thurs will be tough too.

Rockets 98/Lakers 99…3-3. Last second win, 1st road win of the season. The guards played lights out. Still have to get consistency inside from Pau (off night) and Kaman.
