i agree with TW.. on the scope.. basketball wise... some of you.. are bringing (understandably) the humanity impact magic had...

basketball wise this has the potential to be just as big.. LAKERcentric

I didn't become a fan until '95, so personally, I'm in the same boat that this feels like the biggest Laker loss to me, esp if he doesn't come back.

Before that, I did hear about Magic, and that definitely had a huge impact on me, at least in terms of humanity. And it probably would have been bigger had I followed the Showtime Era.

But regardless, I don't want to make comparisons... Out of the history of the game, and as much as I've watched and have been a part of, this has got to be the biggest loss for me.

even if we're just talking ball and not the HIV impact, when magic left the team, they were left with a backup PG thrust into a starting role, a still developing vlade, a version of james worthy that was starting to fall apart, and certainly no other pieces that commanded any type of double team or real concern from the opponent.

at least now, we have dwight to start putting pieces around.

also, i believe kobe will be back in 5-ish months so he can beat the 6 month expectation. even if he misses some time early next year, it's an opportunity for pau and dwight to carry the team,a confidence boost i think they both need
