Not many good things can be said about the Lackers this season. The wheels have pretty much come off entirely. Gasol and a cast of washed up, constantly injured former all stars plus their cheesy third string replacements... that is just a stagnant, boring, uninspired team right now. They used to be a proud franchise. Does anyone think Kobe really has anything left in the tank? Or Nash? That is a team that is going to get worse before it gets better. They are out of the playoff picture for the foreseeable future. Tanking won't help them, either. Not even the # 1 pick would save them from long-term mediocrity.
