I'm not sure about that. If Odom comes back to the Lakers in even remotely good shape, and we somehow sign a Nick Young or Morrow to play sf, are there 10 teams better than us? Kobe, Pau, Nash, Odom, Kaman...with a little health that's a 6 seed. Dallas is going to be worse. Utah is going to be a lot worse. Portland is the only team that might nudge us out of a playoff spot. and an 8 seed in the West might put us top 10 record overall.
I agree.. if we get LO, Morrow, McGuire, Sasha, Bell, 1 of Nate or Farmar or Gibson.. I think we'd surprise alot of people.
That's a really deep & quick team.. D'antoni would run teams to death with all those guys that fit his system.. 4 of our starters are excellent passers.. We'd have multiple shooters to split minutes & ride the hot hand.. That would be a really fun team to watch. I'd expect Nate to have some big games & take the backup minutes from Blake, but there will be plenty to go around until Kobe gets back. If Kobe wasn't going to miss time, I'd say that team could have home court in the 1st round.. But with Kobe missing until around Dec-Jan, that's still a 6 seed at worst.
