    The final 4 teams from last season are now a combined 69-62 right now. That's with the Lakers being 22-11 after losing their last 4.

    Miami, Boston and the Lakers have been hit with injuries and Covid, while the Nuggets (outside of Jokic) have underperformed.

    The Lakers made a mistake not bringing back Dwight Howard, who went to Philly for the same money the Lakers could have offered him. I seriously wonder if he did something to wear out his welcome at the end of the season in October?

    Lakers have also been lucky until Schroder on the COVID front, so a lot of things are hitting at once. The AD injury, mid-season sluggishness after only 70 or so days in between seasons, and Schroder's absence. His energy is huge. Just a perfect storm for some Ls right now.

    That's not to say Mike isn't correct in that AD's absence is making an MVP case.

    Lebron is the MVP of the Lakers, but they are clearly not a contender without AD.

    AD is not an MVP and should never be considered as such. He is, however, the best #2 in the league (probably one of the best ever) and the Lakers will obviously miss that every single game he’s out.

    Funny he is one of the best #2s ever but not in the discussion as best #2s in Lakers history.

    Yes, they are all among the best 2s in Laker history. Magic/Kareem, Shaq/Kobe, Kobe/Pau, LeBron/AD. What’s the scandal here?

    there's no scandal. I just pointing out that the Lakers have perhaps the greatest 1-2 combinations in history. Damn, the Lakers lose a couple games and y'all get super sensitive.

    The Mavericks announced Shawn Bradley was paralyzed in a January bicycle accident when hit by a car and needing neck fusion surgery.

    I saw him within the last two years at Disneyland and he was the biggest human being I have ever seen. He was no longer skinny. He wasn't fat, he was just normal, and at 7'6" he was just enormous.

    Can't imagine life was easy for him, and it just got harder.
