    I sure wouldn't mind having Odom in the mix once he's healthy, if that's okay with you.

    Excellent article on the Kobe trade situation by Chad Ford:

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/insid...beWorth-071106

    Point #1 is something I've thought about for many years and the reason I said they should have traded him a couple years back.

    Ford's a very solid writer, but he lost me when he said "For starters, the Lakers haven't won a playoff series since Shaq was traded to Miami. Many, starting with Bryant himself, blame the 'supporting cast.' But, in fact, Kobe's teammates are better than generally believed, and he has a Hall of Fame coach in Phil Jackson."

    Well, I'd say that there are several teams that have won a playoff series with equal or worse teams than the Lakers over the past 3 years. By no means are the Lakers world beaters, but they're not garbage.

    Maybe in the East, but definitely not in the West.

    The Laker supporting cast is an absolute joke.

    You think this:

    Jason Richardson
    Matt Barnes
    Andris Biedrins
    Stephen Jackson
    Baron Davis
    Monta Ellis
    Al Harrington
    Mickael Pietrus
    Kelenna Azubuike
    Adonal Foyle
    Josh Powell
    Sarunas Jasikevicius

    is a LOT better than this:

    Kobe Bryant
    Smush Parker
    Lamar Odom
    Kwame Brown
    Luke Walton
    Sasha Vujacic
    Jordan Farmar
    Maurice Evans
    Andrew Bynum
    Shammond Williams
    Ronny Turiaf
    Brian Cook

    ?

    Granted, two UCLA alums vs. one can make a big difference. . .but I don't see a HUGE disparity in the roster there.

    Yes, I do think the Warriors were, by the playoffs, a better team--they completely revamped their roster midseason and had a much better record than the Lakers after that. They also matched up much better against Dallas than the Lakers do against Phoenix. Dallas and Golden State both play the up-tempo, not much post game style and Golden State just got ridiculously hot in that series.

    I still have no idea how the Lakers took Phoenix to seven games two years ago.
