The Lakers don’t suck!
Hate to say I told you so, but the Los Angeles Lakers showed exactly why they won’t suck this season. People forget that Pau Gasol is one of the best post players in the NBA and carried a bum-ass Memphis team to the playoffs before going to Kobeville. The Laker bench scored 76 points last night, better than the 69 points scored by the Clippers starters. That won’t happen every night, but it proves that the Lakers have enough talent to shoulder some of the scoring load, something we couldn’t say last season.
