I think we can look forward to the rebuild process coming earlier than we thought. I don't expect the Lakers to make the playoffs and I don't expect Howard to resign with the team. Kobe's final year will be interesting.

Will they get a coach who can get them to play enough defense to make the playoffs? Cuz I really don't see D'Antoni returning to coach a team that underachieved during his watch to historic levels. Jim Buss really screwed the pooch by picking him over Phil Jackson.

I've seen teams this loaded disappoint their fans by losing early in the playoffs. But I've never seen a team with so many all stars play like a lottery team. This has to be unprecedented.

No way! And I think DH is gone in the end of the season...

^ I've been thinking that lately as well. And to be honest, I wouldn't be heartbroken about it. Sure, I wanted Howard more than Bynum, but losing both of them is not like losing say Shaq in his prime or Kobe in his prime. Worst case, I think he would want a sign and trade and we could still get something decent in return.

Rebuilding may indeed come painfully before anyone expected.

Anyone think Lopez, Humphries and four first round picks is on the table again from Brooklyn? Those four first rounders are looking pretty intriguing right about now (especially if they're not lottery protected.)
