I think it's worth noting - Lakers have a pretty light version of an 82-game schedule - few b2b, no extended road trips, etc.
I have Lakers like last year's Wolves - who were in it for a while til they weren't - once they weren't they shut it down-dropped to 40 wins
If Lakers realize they are out in March - that could lead to a dip in 5-7 wins overall vs. competing on bubble through April
Finished my run through the Lakers schedule - will post my take in the morning - issue is LAL needs West to get worse - tall order on paper
Taking on say Steve Nash and mediocre Houston pick, while hurting their own selection from Lakers in 2015? Appealing to Suns? Doubt that
In terms of draft #1 = high, #30 is low - Lakers owe Suns their 2015 1st (top-5 protected) - Phx would prefer as high as possible, naturally
Whenever Bledsoe is mentioned in the news - I get a flood of Lakers questions - not sure Suns want to help lower the Lakers' 2015 pick
Phil Hubbard has emerged as the leading candidate for the head coaching job with the Lakers' D-League affiliate, league sources tell Yahoo.

At some point soon Byron Scott and the Lakers will announce his staff - team doesn't appear to be in any rush - it is August
Lakers Coach Byron Scott will serve as a mentor for Centennial High School's Male Academy - for 9th and 10th grade students
Lakers expected to add well-respected assistant Jim Eyen to Byron Scott's staff, sources tell ESPN. He was last w/ Kings.
Lawler: "I'm thinking the next time we have a party in downtown it's for a championship." Will it be for Lakers or Clippers first?
Yes - Lakers banners are covered at Staples with Clipper portraits as usual
Don't worry Lakers fans...there's bound to be a Lakers rally in June, right? A parade?
The Clippers banners are back up. Lakers fans angrily respond in 3...2...1... http://t.co/UI1SC1XvZX
