LA-Ron Dynasty" Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Lamar Odom, Andrew Bynum, and Ron Artest.

The "Ko P. DA-Ron" rotation is the Lakers starting lineup that has won 13 out of 14 games since Pau Gasol has returned to action. With Derek Fisher in the lineup the team is more conventional with Kobe at the 2, Ron at the 3, Pau at the 4 , and Andrew at the 5.
When Phil Jackson goes to the "Ko P. LA-Ron Lakers" they become the biggest 5-man rotation in the league with Kobe at the point, Ron at the 2, Lamar at the 3, Pau at the 4, and Andrew working the pivot at the 5. This rotation is more like the 1996-98 Chicago Bulls 3-time NBA Champions of Ron Harper, Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman, and Luc Longley. With the length of this rotation the Lakers will be stronger on the defensive-end. They will able to narrow passing lanes and get more defensive rebounds. There will be time more and more that coach Phil Jackson will use this lineup the closer the Lakers get to playoffs.
