I Love Being A Laker Fan!

Now with the recent trade for Pau Gasol, it's safe to say that the Lakers have all the pieces to become one of the NBA's elite teams. It's exciting to see that we have so many excellent players whose skills and talents are both complimentary to each other and fit the triangle system Phil Jackson's offense is built around.

If Andrew Bynum comes back healthy this year, I expect no less than a trip to the Western Conference Finals (and a decent shot at making the Finals). I have a feeling that Kobe Bryant's goal is to get 4 more Championships (1 more than Jordan). We still need to win the first one...but if the Lakers can keep these guys together and healthy I think now's as good of a time as ever to make this insurmountable task a reality.

With a young team, a powerhouse of a starting lineup, and a deep talented bench...we're good to compete. I just hope we can find a way to have less injuries!

4-peat baby (yeah, that's crazy talk right now, but a fan can dream!).

Go Detroit!!! huhu
Les Lakers font forte impression avant le trad de Gasol et encore plus avec lui!!!
Le niveau du championnat est super élevé cette année avec l'hégémonie de Boston, Detroit qui enfile les victoires mais a t'elle l'esprit pour jouer des hauts matchs de playoffs, les Spurs toujours là, et des équipes comme Houston, Cleveland et New Orleans qui viennent jouer les trouble fêtes!

En tout cas superbe blog, beaucoup d'images et des videos funky! Chapeau!
